2012 Packers Game “Blackouts” in the Twin Cities Metro / Western Wisconsin Regions

While technically the games are not being “blacked out”, not being able to watch the Packer games in my region feels that way to me, so I apologize if you don’t like my terminology.  To see the rules on which games are shown, check out the506.com/nflmaps.  Special thanks to James H. for providing me with that link and most of the below information.

The below is a listing of all Green Bay Packers games that will not be shown in the Twin Cities metro / Western Wisconsin regions in 2012 per NFL TV rules:

Week 5: Sun, Oct 7 @ Indianapolis Colts 12:00 pm on FOX [Vikings @ 3:25 pm on CBS, at home.  Could air on KMSP only if Vikings vs. Tennessee gets blacked out]

Week 7: Sun, Oct 21 @ St. Louis Rams 12:00 pm on FOX [Vikings @ noon on FOX, at home.  Will air instead if Vikings vs. Arizona if the game gets blacked out.]

Week 9: Sun, Nov 4 vs. Arizona Cardinals 12:00 pm on FOX [Although Packers play at Noon & Vikings are at 3:05, CBS has the Doubleheader that week so the Packer game cannot be televised by KMSP)]

Week 15: Sun, Dec 16 @ Chicago Bears 12:00 pm on FOX [Vikings @ noon on FOX (same time & network)]

Week 16 (maybe): Sun, Dec 23 vs. Tennessee Titans 12:00 pm on CBS [Although they’re on different networks, CBS will most likely not allow WCCO to air a game in the same timeslot as the Vikings on a singleheader week. Fox has the Doubleheader]

Good luck Twin Cities and Western Wisconsin Packer fans, and GO PACK!
