Mark Sanchez’s second NFL regular-season appearance, against Tom Brady and the New England Patroits, squeezed Oakland Raiders’ fans out of the picture as far as CBS and its local affiliate, Channel 2, was concerned for this weekend’s local TV coverage.
Later, the Chargers’ home opener could bring some San Diego folks up here if it doesn’t sell out in time.
The rest of the weekend for NFL in L.A.:
== 10 a.m., Channel 2: New England at N.Y. Jets (with Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf; instead of Houston-Tennessee, Oakland-Kansas City or Cincinnati-Green Bay)

== 1 p.m., Channel 2: Baltimore at San Diego (with Dick Enberg and Dan Fouts, instead of Pittsburgh-Chicago or Cleveland-Denver)
== 5:15 p.m., Channel 4: N.Y. Giants at Dallas (with Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Andrea Kremer)
