Default I'm Surprised

I thought the NFL was able to change games to prime-time at this time of the season so people wouldn't have to suffer watching a worthless game (Jets and whomever). This game should have been switched.

the networks that pay for the rights to broadcast the games also have the rights to protect games at certain timeslots..


that is what has happened here i believe. (its the network that flexs the games not the NFL i believe.)

Also, it's only the Sunday night games in the last half of the season that can be changed. I think moving a Monday game to Sunday and vice-versa, would be a logistical problem.

This Sunday's game was switched from Jets-Chargers to SF-Seattle. I read that CBS protected the Bengals-Steelers game from being switched. I'm interested to see what week 17 game gets switched to Sunday night.

Most likely the Redskins-Cowboys game. If both teams win this week, that game will be for the NFC East crown
