The NFL begins its’ bye weeks in Week 4, and Indianapolis and Pittsburgh will not play this week, so there will be only 15 games. CBS has six games this week, so all crews except 7/F Spero Dedes–Steve Beuerlein will work in Week 4.
FOX has six games for the third straight week, so the network will not use crew 6/F (Sam Rosen–Heath Evans) once again, while crew 7/G (Ron Pitts–MIke Martz–Kristina Pink) has an assignment for the fourth straight week. FOX also made a change in field reporters at Washington-Tampa Bay as Krista Voda will work for Jamie Maggio on the 5/E crew of Chris Myers–Tim Ryan.
CBS’ A crew of Jim Nantz–Phil Simms will have Oakland-Denver. The B crew of Greg Gumbel-Dan Dierdorf will call New England-Buffalo. The C crew of Ian Eagle–Dan Fouts will be at Tennessee-Houston.
FOX’s A crew of Joe Buck–Troy Aikman–Pam Oliver will work New Orleans-Green Bay. The B crew of Kenny Albert–Daryl Johnston–Tony Siragusa has San Francisco-New York Jets. The C crew of Thom Brennaman–Brian Billick–Laura Okmin will have Minnesota-Detroit.
NFL Network will have Cleveland-Baltimore on Thursday, NBC will show Sunday night’s New York Giants-Philadelphia game, while ESPN will telecast Chicago-Dallas on Monday night.
