The Las Vegas Raiders will be back on Fresno local network television when they return from the bye Nov. 7.

The Raiders visit the New York Giants for a game at MetLife Stadium, with kickoff set for 10 a.m. PST. And yes, the game is scheduled to be on in the Fresno TV market, this time on KGPE 47, the usual home of the Raiders, according to TV Guide listings.

Raider Nation fans were left in the dark in Week 7 when it came to watching on local TV in the Fresno area as the Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles game was not shown, yielding to the meeting of the Los Angeles Rams and Detroit Lions because of the “Matthew Stafford-Jared Goff intriguing matchup,” according to a Fox spokesman.

In the recent past, almost all Raiders games have been shown in the Fresno area.

Those Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders games were shown on KSEE 24 (when NBC had the AFC package), with CBS 47 picking up the torch since 1998 after that network bought the AFC rights.
