Still no word on Week 15 flex decision

Getty Images

On Tuesday night, the league said that a decision regarding whether Ravens-Chargers will be flexed out of prime time will be made on Wednesday.  The Ravens said it would come Wednesday morning.

If it has been made, it has yet to be shared.

As of this posting, the NFL has not announced whether Ravens-Chargers will stay put or whether the Patriots-Broncos game will slide into the 8:20 p.m. ET position.

Either way, a decision needs to come soon.  Maybe in the end Commissioner Roger Goodell will do what he did to decide whether the Jets or the Giants will host the first game at the new stadium they share.

Flip a coin.

  1. So Goodell would essentially override CBS’ objections to flexing the Patriots/Broncos game into prime time? Can he really arbitrarily just do that? When flexing games around was added into scheduling, the networks were allowed to protect one game per week. If CBS wants to keep that game on their network, who is Goodell to say otherwise?

  2. Brady vs Tebow! Brady vs Tebow! Brady vs Tebow! Brady vs Tebow! Brady vs Tebow!

    Come on Rodger, make a decision that’s good for us fans for once.

  3. This is such a joke. At this point don’t even bother any more. If the Pats want to b**** and whine about having to take a late flight home let them have their way.

    I guess we’ve finally found the one thing that trumps Tebow: Robert Kraft’s tears.

  4. Brady vs Tebow

    The definition of clutch vs clutch by any means necessary

    I can’t wait to see this match up whether it’s at night or in the afternoon. This will be a real test for the Broncos. They need to beat a real team to prove they are the real thing

  5. It’s obvious CBS did not protect the Patriots/Broncos game so what leverage could they possibly have in trying a retroactive protection?

    Rules are rules CBS.

  6. The blocked game was probably determined 4 months ago. I have a feeling it’s the Jets-Eagles game, which looked good at the time. That’s why they’re fighting. They’re fighting because Patriots-Broncos is not blocked.

    Also, Kraft doesn’t want an 8 pm game in Denver in December.

  7. I believe the rule was the networks could protect 5 games period during the entire flex portion of the years schedule. Not 1 a week. But I don’t remember for sure.

  8. I actually think the SD-Balt game will be a better game. There’s only so many times that Tebow can go 3 and out before he’s staring at a 17 point deficit. The Broncos are exciting and I for one love watching their brand of football (smashmouth sure is refreshing!) but I just don’t think they are ready for the Pats. Not a good matchup….YET. Give it a year.

  9. Too bad for Kraft. Rules are rules. It’s WORSE for the Ravens, who have an 8 p.m. game 2 1/2 hours in the air farther west than the Patriots. Flex the game like the rules allow.

  10. This indecision reeks of not only of incompetence but also utter indifference to the fans who have tickets and/or travel plans around these games. Poo or get off the pot.

    The deadline to make the move (yesterday) has come and passed, and passed again this morning.
    If CBS wanted the game it had the chance to protect it, but instead chose to protect the 2 Time Defending Super Bowl Champion Jets at Dream Team Eagles. CBS=Fail.

    Give CBS the option to protect a game week 17 for giving up the Broncos/Vikings game to Fox last week and stop holding the fans hostage here.

  11. It’s not that difficult. Make the Bears/Broncos a CBS game to make up for them losing the Vikes/Broncos game and then Flex the NE/Den game to primetime, which will get better ratings than the Bmore/Sd game.

  12. The Pats have a game the following Saturday, so a Sunday night game means they lose Monday prep time on an already short week. The only fair thing would be to keep the schedules as they are.

  13. Does anyone with a pulse really believe the Denver Tebows will not get the call? Is this anticipation even necessary? Everyone go back to bed and await the inevitable.

  14. Apparently there are rules wherein CBS or FOX have the first rights to 1 game / week and not more than 5 games / season during the flex scheduling. CBS apparently has used one of those requests and can use its right on this as well. Love the Pats, but they have such a bad record out in Denver.. will be tough to win there

  15. We the people of the United States of Tebownia demand a just decision.

    Give us this day our daily Tebow, in prime time, or we will occupy the NFL offices!

    Um, pretty much everybody has a game on the 24th, so no matter who plays in that spot in week 15, those teams are going to have a shorter week.

  17. The Pats have a game the following Saturday, so a Sunday night game means they lose Monday prep time on an already short week. The only fair thing would be to keep the schedules as they are.

    The Broncos also have a game the next Saturday.
    How is it not fair?

  19. I’m tired of this “Tebowmania.” I don’t dislike him, I just think it’s way too much hype and talk for a below average QB. Can he make plays – yes. Is he winning – yes. Will he ever be a good, Superbowl caliber NFL QB – no. Who’s in charge in Denver? John Elway. A Hall of Fame QUARTERBACK. He will trade Tebow. My bet is Jacksonville. Win-Win -Lose. Lose is all the talk, not just on this site – all sports media.

  20. Young Mr. Tebow sure is causing quite a stir throughout the NFL.

    I love it! Prove the naysayers wrong! Down with hate, anger, and he cant’s…..

  21. This is one of the biggest games of the regular season and I’ll be pretty pissed if I can’t see it. I can assure you I would not be watching SD Baltmore.

  22. As much as I ‘d love to watch the Pats in prime time, with a short week, I’d rather they play in the afternoon.

  23. If Goodell had a sack he would do his job and decide that DEN vs. NE is the best game for the fans and the league. But because his buddy is whining about having to travel west a grand total of ONCE for the year, it might bruise his team’s labia majora. Can’t believe what pu$$ies the Pats are being. Or should I say Patsies?

  24. I’ve prayed on it and the Good Lord has directed me to flex the Raiders/Lions into the prime time slot featuring the premeditated double ejection of Suh and Seymour and halftime public execution of Rolando McClain. – Just released statement from the office of Roger Goodell.

    The Ravens have a game the following Saturday too!! Patriots & CBS need to stop whining!!

  26. That’s too bad, I was hoping for an entertaining game on Sunday night.

    Should have been Lions/Raiders

  27. it has already been announced that Bob Kraft and CBS cried and got their ways keeping Broncos-Pats off SNF. Pretty sure everyone wants to see 2 playoff teams facing each other than a Chargers team that is done and an up & down Ravens team.

  28. Maybe its just my indifference this year after Miami’s crappy start…but is it just me or have there been a ton of crappy prime time games this year? As in…way more than usual?

  29. Ravens website says game won’t be flexed. Finally someone figured out who the BEST TEAM IN THE AFC is! Ray Lewis is coming back that game to dance on the bolts.
