The NFL uses “flexible scheduling” on Sundays in Weeks 11-17.  Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives teams a chance to play their way onto primetime and into the late-afternoon 4:25 PM ET time slot on CBS or FOX.

 

For each flexible scheduling week with the exception of Week 17, the NFL announces the start times of games on Sundays no later than 12 days prior to that weekend.  To ensure a Sunday night game and doubleheader games with playoff implications in Week 17, flexible scheduling decisions for that Sunday can be made on six days notice.

    I am really surprised that they did not move this game off of NBC. If the Giants lose next week to Dallas, they will be out of it. And, the Redskins are close to be eliminated as well. This could be an ugly game.

  • CrimeDawg18

    I am surprised at this one too, but NBC loves to show games with the NFC East and if the Giants keep winning they could still win the division I guess.
    I am hoping for a Cinncy-Indy game on December 8th, you know they are going to dump the Green Bay-Atlanta game.

    There was no so much better game to move in.

    + thanksgiving weekend nbc doesnt want to travel far from thursday nite game.

  • romo

    to crimedawg:

    ind/cin is protected so doubt it gets picked since cbs already lost a protected game.

    “There was no better game to move in”

    What about the Bronco-Chief rematch in Kansas City?

    Probably didn’t go with it because they had them last night but it’s easily the premier game in week 13.

  • Max Vrany

    There was a rumor going around last night that NBC had picked up Arizona-Philadelphia. Turned out to be just a rumor.

  • Max Vrany

    @ubet, KC-Denver in Week 13 is protected by CBS. The Broncos will have also made the maximum number of appearances on NBC as of this Sunday night.

  • romo

    to ubet:

    you need to brush up on your snf rules lol.

  • ubet

    All I know is that NBC has flex scheduling available to them for the final seven weeks of the regular season. Not aware of any other rules concerning a time change on Sunday only.

  • ubet

    Just found it…Dec. 1 DEN/KC game is considered an “early” game and is not permitted to be moved to prime time. They DID flex it to be the lead afternoon game for CBS.

  • TomKH

    NBC is counting on the Cowboys ineptitude. They have good reason.

  • Joseph

    I was surprised the Denver/Kansas City wasn’t flexed, but on the other hand, I think the NFL has a limit on the number of prime-time games a team can play in a single season (with the possible exception of a Week 17 game being moved to prime-time), and perhaps “flexing” the Denver/Kansas City game on December 1st would have put Denver in violation of it.

    Despite Houston’s terrible season, I was surprised their game with New England was “flexed” to a 1:05 P.M. EST kickoff (it was originally scheduled for 4:25 EST).

    Perhaps if the Denver/Kansas City rematch had been moved to prime-time, the New England/Houston game might have remained at 4:25.

    If it were possible to “flex” a Monday night game to Sunday (and vice-versa), the New Orleans/Seattle game might have been flexed to Sunday to take advantage of the (somewhat) larger NBC audience.
