We now know who the announcing teams will be for all the televion networks carrying NFL football in the 2019 season. We also know which booth crews will be assigned to the first two Kansas City Chiefs telecasts — both of which will be broadcast by CBS.

Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts and Evan Washburn will have the call for the Week 1 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In Week 2, Jim Nantz, Tony Romo and Tracy Wolfson will report the game against the Oakland Raiders.

Based on the order in which CBS listed its announcing crews, the Chiefs-Jaguars game will get the second-string team in Week 1. But in Week 2, the Chiefs-Oakland game will have the first-string team in the booth.

Here are the broadcast teams for each network where you will see the Chiefs play this season:

As always, late-season games can be flexed into primetime slots, which will affect which networks carry which games.

This season, CBS is set to broadcast the AFC playoff games — including the AFC Championship. Super Bowl LIV (from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on Sunday, February 2) will be carried on Fox.
