Eagles-Giants announcers

Only four more weeks of the regular season left. Kind of insane, huh? Here's our weekly look at what games will be on TV for most of us in the Philadelphia area. Giants-Eagles at 1 p.m. The Plaxico Burress mess. The Birds on the ropes. Gotta have the No. 1 announcing team, right? Think again. Joe Buck (I know, your favorite) and Troy Aikman will be in Pittsburgh to call Steelers-Cowboys at 4 p.m. Most of us in the Philadelphia area will get that game after the Birds. As for the Eagles game, it will be the familiar threesome of Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa. One of these days I'm going to write down everything Siragusa says during a game and publish it as a blog post. The other Sunday afternoon game for us will be Jets at 49ers on CBS at 4 p.m. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will have the call. Your Thursday night game has the Raiders traveling to San Diego to take on the Chargers. Would you believe that San Diego (4-8) has just one more win than Oakland (3-9)? Kickoff on NFL Network is at 8:15. The Sunday and Monday night matchups should be good ones. Sunday it's the Redskins at the Ravens at 8:15 on NBC. And Monday it's Tampa Bay at Carolina for first place in the NFC South. By the way, meant to mention this earlier in the week but forgot. Since you're reading this NFL blog, you probably read many NFL writers online. One of the most prominent football writers out there, Sports Illustrated's Dr. Z, is recovering from two strokes. Peter King wrote about him in his Monday Morning Quarterback column. You can send Paul Zimmerman get-well wishes on SI.com's Web site.
