For those who are wondering about the "white spots" around Houston:
What do the white areas mean?
Welcome to the world of blackout rules. The short answer is: no game at all. This can be due to one of two rules: a) no games can air at the same time as a local team's home game on another network, or b) if a game is blacked out because it doesn't sell out, the network with the doubleheader can only show one game. Don’t shoot the messenger, I think the rules are stupid too.

Thanks for the information on the white areas. I thought the NFL had said that all games were sold out so far, and therefore nothing could be blacked out. But I know I've seen white spots on previous maps this year. Who knows. I hope Waco is in that yello area again, it's right on the edge.
