The San Francisco 49ers travel to face the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3, with the game set to kick off at 1:05 p.m. PT. The FOX broadcast will likely be fairly limited in nature, given the matchup and timing. The 1:25 p.m. games gets broader coverage, which could bode well for the 49ers Week 4 contest against the Packers. The 49ers-Cardinals game is actually the only afternoon FOX game, but I have a hunch blackout rules will end up keeping this game primarily in northern California and Arizona. We'll have the full rundown on Wednesday and Thursday when 506sports.com is updated.
The game is getting the No. 4 announcer crew from FOX. This will include Thom Brennaman on play-by-play, Charles Davis on color commentary, and Tony Siragusa on the sideline. The Goose had previously been part of the Kenny Albert/Daryl Johnston crew, but FOX broke them up this year. And so, we get Goose this week, a week after having the Albert/Johnson crew.
