NFL Viewer’s Guide: Week 6 TV Schedule, Announcer Assignments, Matchups, and Teams on Bye

Update 10/12: All announcer assignments have been added for the Week 6 games.

Take one glance at the Week 6 matchups and two jump out immediately: Falcons-Eagles, where Michael Vick could make his first start against his former team (ribs willing); and, Cowboys-Vikings, where two desperate Super Bowl contenders (or so they thought) battle to save their seasons.

Oh, and Colt McCoy is probably going to make his first start in Pittsburgh against Troy Polamalu and the Steelers’ outstanding defense. Yeah, that’s going to go well.
