The Seahawks won’t be televised on FOX this Sunday, something that’ll only happen one other game this season.

Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts will have the call on CBS, which will televise a rare Seahawks game this weekend when the Chargers come to Seattle for the 1:15 kickoff on Sunday.

NFL television arrangements dictate that in interconference matchups, the visiting team’s network will broadcast the game. In this instance, since the Chargers are an AFC team and CBS has a contract for AFC games, CBS will air Sunday’s matchup from Qwest Field. CBS will also televise the Seahawks’ home game against the Chiefs on Nov. 28, while all of Seattle’s other 2010 games are slated to be on FOX.

On the flip side, when the Seahawks visit an AFC opponent, FOX will televise the matchup, like what occurred last weekend in Denver.
