Any Given Sunday: Ravens Broadcasts in DC

I would enjoy nothing more than to watch the Ravens/Browns today at home. However, Channel 9, the local affiliate is showing the Philly/KC game. I'm really getting tired of the "hit and miss" of whether or not Ravens games are televised on any given Sunday.

When Baltimore got another franchise more than 10 years ago, I remember thinking: Okay, the Redskins are NFC; the Ravens are AFC -- so there would be no conflicts. However, I quickly learned that if the Redskins are home, and on Fox channel 5, that the CBS affiliate (in this case, 9) cannot show another game).

However, today is different. The Redskins are playing the Lions in Detroit. So why is Channel 9 showing the Philly/KC game when they can show the Ravens/Browns? Don't they realize there are many transplanted Baltimore natives in the area? Another solution would be if the cable company would offer the Baltimore affiliates on the DC area cable systems. Seems like a simple solution to me.
