Joe Buck, Fox's lead football and baseball announcer, plans to call both the Giants-49ers game Sunday afternoon and Game 1 of the NLCS between the Cardinals and Giants Sunday night.

Both games will be played in San Francisco, but Buck will have little to no margin for error logistically. The football game is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET and the baseball game for 8:15. Candlestick Park, where the 49ers play, is in the southeastern corner of the city and AT&T Park, where the Giants play, is in the northeastern part of the city.

Buck plans to arrive by cable car at AT&T Park after calling the football Giants' game.
