49ers @ NE is already a Sunday Night game. Would they have SF play two in a row?
This is what I think would exclude this possibility.............UNLESS it was for the division, which is possible, but not likely.
There are quite a few other games NBC could flex to in week 16.
Giants vs. Ravens (both in playoff picture)
Bengals vs. Steelers (both in playoff picture)
Saints vs. Cowboys (if one or both teams are scratching for playoff berth)
Searching out some information for this topic, I ran across a thread where someone said that a reporter for the Giants had written that the game against the Ravens was being protected by the league. If true, that means two things, ONE, they can't be flexed, and TWO, our game cannot be protected as FOX can only protect one game in any given week.
I just REALLY REALLY hope that we can keep this game in it's original slot.
