THE NFL ON CBS Sunday schedule is highlighted by nine doubleheader weekends with marquee match-ups in the 4:25 PM, ET national window, the highest-rated and most-watched NFL television window, as well as CBS's annual Thanksgiving Day broadcast featuring the Los Angeles Chargers at Dallas Cowboys at 4:30 PM, ET. THE NFL ON CBS kicks off Week 1 on Sunday, Sept. 10. In addition, CBS will televise 10 games featuring the defending SUPER BOWL Champion New England Patriots.
Football starts on CBS with the Thursday night primetime package, which this year features five consecutive games beginning September 28 with Chicago at Green Bay.
