Ever wonder why there was sometimes only a 1:00 game or only a 4:00 game every so often on sundays on one channel while the other channel got a doubleheader? And then the next week it might have been flipped? Check this out:
Per NFL rules, stations are not allowed to air NFL games against the home team at home. Although 11/5/06 is a doubleheader date for CBS, W*USA 9 is only allowed to air a 4pm game since the Redskins play at home at 1pm on FOX. While we prefer to air two football games, we must abide to NFL broadcast rules.
That answers that.
