NFL Week 4 in the L.A. TV market: Rams-Cards in AZ forces itself on the St. Louis market, too

hi-res-6790696_crop_northThe Rams’ game in Arizona is locked in with a third consecutive week of Fox broadcasting — Sunday, 1:25 p.m., Channel 11, with Thom Brennaman and Charles Davis, with Peter Schrager.
The game is so popular, it only goes to nine percent of the nation (and that includes force-feeding it to St. Louis, the city that one had and lost both these teams).
Meanwhile, San Diego is hosting New Orleans, also Sunday, also at 1:25 p.m., and also a Fox game, with Chris Myers and Ronde Barber. But not in L.A. And only to five percent of the nation.
Meanwhile, take the battle of logos — Dallas at San Francisco — in that same late afternoon Fox TV window, with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. It goes to the remaining 84 percent of the nation.
Both Fox and CBS are given two games to carry on this Sunday, but Fox has the more flexible doubleheader. Here’s how it lays out:

Thursday:
= Miami at Cincinnati: 5:25 p.m., NFL Network only, with the CBS crew of Jim Nantz, Phil Simms and Tracy Wolfson
Sunday:
= Indianapolis vs. Jacksonville at Wembley Stadium in London, 6:30 a.m., Channel 2, with Greg Gumbel and Trent Green. Goes to everyone.
= Oakland at Baltimore, 10 a.m., Channel 2 with Andrew Catalon, Steve Tasker and Steve Beuerlein (instead of Tennessee at Houston, Cleveland at Washington and Buffalo at New England in this window, as well as Denver at Tampa Bay in the afternoon window.)
= Seattle at N.Y. Jets, 10 a.m., Channel 11 with Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch with Pam Oliver (instead of Carolina at Atlanta and Detroit at Chicago)
= Kansas City at Pittsburgh, 5:25 p.m., Channel 4 with Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Michele Tafoya
Monday:
= N.Y. Giants at Minnesota, 5:25 p.m., ESPN with Sean McDonough, Jon Gruden and Lisa Walters
(Green Bay and Philadelphia have a bye week)
