An explanation as to why Capital Region viewers didn't see start of Jets-Steelers

As a Philadelphia Eagles fan, I was happy that CBS Sports showed the final minutes of their 24-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens after the Kansas City Chiefs-Buffalo Bills contest ended earlier.

But if I'm a Capital Region New York Jets fan, I would be wondering why CBS6 (WRGB) didn't show the Jets-Pittsburgh Steelers game right at 4:25 p.m., even though the Eagles-Ravens game wasn't over yet.

Well, it turns out, CBS didn't have to switch us to the Jets-Steelers at the start of the game. A CBS spokesperson told me late Sunday afternoon that the Capital Region isn't a secondary market for the Jets, so that's why we didn't see the start of the game.

This may not please Jets fans, but I was happy to see an Eagles' comeback win.
