Will these games?
Starting last season Sunday ticket signed something with the local networks so that any game that is on your local stations (the Fox and CBS in your area) is blacked out on your Sunday ticket. And then they make the price for it higher.
It sucks, but I'm sure it will be the same this year. The more spread out the games are, the more that will be able to be on your local stations. Generally they'd show your local teams (in my case Atlanta and Carolina) but if they aren't playing I'm sure they'll have the only game that's on showing; which means Sunday ticket will have it blacked out in your area.
Last year I tried unplugging my receiver from the phone jack to see if it still picked up that those games are being showed on local TV...it didn't work. So it looks like we're stuck.
