The NFL has said that it provides free television broadcasts in the home cities of competing teams.
But the senators have written a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell saying the NFL is too narrowly interpreting what constitutes a home city.
For example, Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter says the NFL does not consider the western Pennsylvania town of Johnstown to be part of the home market of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The senators are asking the NFL to reconsider its policy.
A message left with the NFL was not immediately returned.
