Week 8 of the 2015 NFL season gives us fans a bonus game. The Detroit Lions and the Kansas City Chiefs are out in England to play a game in London. That means FOX gets a third game, while CBS gets a single game. Between the three games normally on TV in most markets, Sunday Night Football and the London game, we can watch football games basically non-stop from when we get up until we get to bed.
Here is the coverage map for Week 8's contests, per 506 Sports.
