WBNS-10TV will carry the Cleveland Browns versus the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at 1 p.m.
The station released the following statement about the selection of the Browns game over the Cincinnati Bengals game, played at the same time.
"As a CBS affiliate, 10TV is often given a few options regarding the NFL games available to air on our station. The first game of the season is traditionally selected based on viewership levels of the two Ohio teams. In 2012, Nielsen research indicated that the Browns were more widely viewed among central Ohioans.
As the season progresses, decisions as to which NFL game will be shown are carefully evaluated on a week-by-week basis, taking into account a number of factors, including viewership levels, team performance and opponents.
As always, we appreciate your feedback and thank you for watching 10TV!"
