NFL Schedule for Sunday Games: October 2017

Cord Cutter’s NFL Schedule for Sundays in October

Things might start to cool down in October, but in the world of the NFL things are just starting to heat up. Narratives are staring to form, teams are rising to the top, while others are starting to sink to the bottom. And here you are, wondering how you can get in on all the action.

The good news for you is that you don’t have to wonder any longer. Nearly every single NFL game that’s played Sunday airs on broadcast television, so you don’t have to have a cable subscription to join the fun. The only thing you need to watch the NFL this month is a simple over-the-air (OTA) Mohu antenna.

With an OTA antenna, you’ll be able to pick up every single broadcast network in your area, including NBC, FOX, and CBS. This means that you won’t have access to every game (you need Game Pass for that), but if it is available on a major broadcast network via your local cable company, you can watch it for Free with an Antenna. To find out which games are airing in your area, in a given week, keep reading.

Let’s take a look at the NFL’s schedule for this month.

Local Broadcast Maps

As you might notice, there are multiple games going on at the same time on the same network. Which game you end up watching will depend largely on where you live. For example if you live in Jacksonville, and the Jaguars are playing at home, odds are you’ll be watching the Jaguars game.
