...that's the scheduled game next Sunday night...
Was that the original SNF game...
or, was it "flexed" in ???

NO CHANCE now for SF @ Seahawks the following Sunday night !!
No way will they give SF two straight SNF games.......

They might have to make an exception. Thats the only worthy game with the other two games worthy being protected by Fox and CBS. I guess they could just stick with their ****y matchup they already got though.

I think its very likely based on the other possible selections. Why not?

There's no rule against having the same team on twice, and NBC wants games with meaning on SNF. If we win next week + 49ers lose to New England.. that game is for control of the NFC West.

It's going to get flexed IMO.

Yes, ges. They have to make a decision on the Week 16 game by this Tuesday.

The only other game that has a shot to be flexed is the Saints at Cowboys game, but the Saints playoff hopes took a devastating blow and the Cowboys are also on the outside looking in. If that game got flexed it'd be purely for ratings since the Cowboys have a huge fan base.

I think it will get flexed too. Is SeatownJay right in saying it must be done by this Tuesday? I would imagine it has to be done sooner, rather than later. I think since both teams won this week, it'll be flexed; at least I am hoping so!

New York Giants at Baltimore is another possibility. Could have NFC EAST implications, but I sure hope it's us and the niners. Primetime for the division, please let it be.

Cant believe I will be a die hard Pat fan at this time next week

Isn't that the one FOX has already protected?

The Giants and Baltimore is protected by FOX, as well as Cincinnati and Pittsburgh is protected by CBS. (Cant provide confirming link, however know I did read that from a legit source...not to go all ESPN reporter)

As much as I totally would love for 'Hawks and '9ers to get flexed in, (nevermind the fact that it should def be the best game, and the one that makes the most sense) i'm confident that it will be either Philly - Wash or Dallas - N.O.
Cowboys are still alive for a spot, as well as playing the Saints so would be huge ratings. Washington and RG3 are right there to and could be last home game for Andy Reid in Philadelphia

Im pretty sure I, as well as the nation as a whole, is getting sick and tired of watching the Saints every week on National TV. They suck are are uninteresting. They dont have a big fanbase either.

I do...they don't care about who gets it, they care about making money by luring the most viewers.
