Steelers, Packers fans were so upset with CBS over TV decision

CBS Steelers Packers

CBS upset a large number of NFL fans on Sunday with their decision in the afternoon.

CBS’ national game for the second wave of games in Week 4 was Pittsburgh at Green Bay. Both of those teams have huge fan bases, and there is also a good deal of national interest in a game between the well-known teams and quarterbacks.

Fans who did not live in the Packers and Steelers markets, and those without the Sunday Ticket package, were unable to see the first quarter of the game. Take a look at the reaction on Twitter:
