    I hate night games.

  • brutony!

    I LOVE night games-cause I’ll be waiting all day for Sunday Night, with the Eagles here on NBCHD! And we always bring top ratings to these Prime Time games, esp vs the dreaded Cowboys!

    Well Here We Go Again for the 3rd time and for the 3rd straight year that the Cowboys have been flexed to the final Sunday Night Game this is stupid. Why did they do this because of star players to attract. The rules are still the same Win or go Home. I Was Hoping For Packers vs Bears game would have been a Better choice. But This is not a bad choice. Cause I’m Not A Dallas Cowboys Fan. We just saw the Eagles this past Sunday Night against the Bears And they beat them 54-11. And were going to see them again This Sunday Night.

    But You Don’t have to watch this game like last year’s Cowboys Vs Redskins game and the year before’s Cowboys Vs Giants game. Because It’s like having your pie and cake.

    But I Watched Cowboys VS Giants game anyway NBC Had a great Super Bowl 2 years ago. And I Watched Cowboys VS Redskins game anyway NBC Had A Great Pro Bowl Last Year.

    But this is still going to be a Great showdown and You will have a Great Matchup to wrap up the 2013 Regular Season. And the 2013-14 NFL Playoffs Begin next Saturday. And NBC will air the Pro Bowl On Sunday January 26.

    But let me tell you this Eagles VS Cowboys could also be the 1st Sunday Night Football game of the 2014 Regular Season Come September 7. Which means you will have to find out come April. When the regular season schedule is released So you better stay tuned And will let you know.

    But what will the 2014 NFL Regular Season Schedule Be Like Find Out this Spring well Let You Know Stay Tuned.
