    With the bye weeks in play, this Sunday there are now only two, four o'clock games. Both games are avaialble locally for me. With that, any idea if the Red Zone channel will sign-off early?

    Red Zone won't end early (be blacked out) for you just because you get the games locally.
    But Red Zone might end early for everyone because there are only two games being played.
    My guess is that it will go on and just switch back between Panthers/Cardinals and Broncos/Cowboys, with frequent highlights of the early games.

    I'm not sure why, but there is only one game being shown at 4:00 in NYC (Broncos/Cowboys). I would think that the same thing is happening in other markets as well. Regardless, even if NYC is the only market not showing 2 afternoon games, Sunday Ticket and Red Zone need to be on for people in that/those market(s).

    This happened in week 1 too only games were arz/stl & gb/sf.

    RZ stays on till all games are done or 8:00 whatever comes 1st.

    Its a cbs doubleheader weekend but cbs cant show a game at 1:00 in NY cause the giants are home.

    Thats why NY gets only 1 fox & 1 cbs game.

    I thought that was might be the case. Therefore, this condition will exist in any market where a local NFC team has a 1:00 home game against another NFC team. That would be NYC, Chicago & Green Bay.

    We've been devotees of RZ since it began and , no, they will go to 8 PM as usual.

    This is a unique situation at this point in the season, caused by the necessary postponement of the Chargers/Raiders game, which would have been played at 4:25 p.m., to 11:35 p.m.

    So it really is an oddity, and not something that the NFL planned for.
