CBS chooses bad football instead of Titans, Bills.
Tennessee Titans fans are used to the media treating them like they aren’t worth their time, but this is pretty clear disrespect.
That is nothing new to Titans or Bills fans, but it is interesting to see CBS choose to appeal to specific fan bases instead of actually putting their best announcers on the best games.
You may not be sure what I am referring to right now, but here is the issue.
CBS decides which broadcast teams go to which games, and this week they decided to reward the 0-4 New York Giants (who have three touchdowns all year) and the 1-3 Dallas Cowboys (who only have a win because the Atlanta Falcons don’t understand how onside kicks work) with their top broadcast team.
The Titans and Bills are a combined 7-0, and despite the fact that Tennessee didn’t play last week, seven combined wins are more than any other matchup in the NFL this week. Despite having two unbeaten teams at the top of their divisions battling in front of the best options that CBS has, they are relegated to the seventh best crew.

This isn’t an article to say woe is me, the Titans are so mistreated. The point here is that when you push good, winning football teams down the broadcast that means that more people are going to know about the bad teams while fewer people know about the quality teams in the NFL.
That leads to uninformed content and talking points from announcers/national media analysts who only skim the games or google the highlights. Collectively, that makes everyone dumber and it hurts the product.
Now usually I can understand if both teams are mediocre and in big markets, especially if they are exciting. But these are two bad, boring teams who are only going to have a chance at a playoff spot because their current division leader is 1-2-1 with half their team banged up.
So, on Sunday when you are watching football and you hear Tony Romo expertly breaking down why Daniel Jones will never be a good quarterback or why the Cowboys just aren’t trying on defense, know that this game ultimately won’t matter while there is a matchup of two likely playoff teams going on in a different time zone.
Great job by CBS, can’t wait to hear former journeyman kicker Jay Feely break call this matchup and analyze whether the Tennessee Titans made the right decisions with their lineup changes after their bout with COVID.
