Seahawks-Jaguars moved to later slot in Week 14

With the Ravens and Steelers both looking like playoff teams (or at least looking like teams which will qualify) the NFL decided not to take them off of Sunday Night Football.

In fact, the adjustments to the Week 14 television schedule were slight.

The league announced that the Seattle at Jacksonville game was moved to the 4:25 p.m. ET slot on FOX, and the Cowboys-Giants game was moved into the 1:00 p.m. ET slot on the same network.

That gives more people a chance to see a great defense (and also the Seahawks), and allows FOX the opportunity to hide a game that seemed like a much better idea in April. It also keeps the Eagles and the Rams on FOX at 4:25 p.m. ET, while some might have preferred seeing that in prime time.

The simple fact that a scheduling change was made so more people could see the Jaguars is a wonderful thing, an early Festivus miracle.

  1. I’m a Jaguars season ticketholder and I’d rather watch the Rams/Eagles. That is the premier NFC game of the season. One of those two teams will play in the Super Bowl.

  2. Wow, so they Seahawks get out of having a 10 a.m. game. If I was the Jags I’d be livid as that game should now be much more competitive.

    West Coast teams should always get the 4:25 slots anyway though. Nobody makes East Coast teams start prime time games at 8:30 Pacific time. And just as the reason night games are moved earlier so the East Coast folks can watch at a reasonable time, nobody on the west coast wants to really be up and watching a game at 10 am Sunday either.

  3. wish they kept the jags and seahawks at 1. then we could watch all three of those games. it will benefit the cowboys and giants because now they arent competing with the rams eagles for eyes at 4:25

  4. Well that takes care of the only 10 a.m. kickoff on the East Coast left for the Seahawks. How nice of the NFL to finally help us out with that.

    Seahawks are decimated with injuries. Most teams would have been in the gutter by now but the Hawks just keep fighting and hanging on I’m really proud of them. Russell Wilson is a stud.

    I think this Eagles team might be too much for the Seahawks atm but at the same time you never know…hawks know how to win. This Sunday will be very interesting. If the Seahawks win that eagles game then they will be looking very good to win the division.

    So close…fun times. I feel bad for fans of bad teams that are never in the hunt.

    Seahawks and Jaguars will be a secondary game. Rams and Eagles should be the main national doubleheader game.

    The NFL figures both will be coming off losses I’m sure.

  6. “That gives more people a chance to see a great defense (and also the Seahawks)…”

    The Seahawks are 8th in defense without 2 Hall of Famers, another Hall of Famer missing 2 games and their starting RCB missing the last 2 games. They’d be 7th without giving up a last play garbage-time TD pass when the team was already halfway to the plane.

    But by all means, keep up with your BS narrative.

    Wow! Whine much? Does it say anywhere that the Seahawks are bad? No. It just points out that the Jaguars are known to have a very good defense (and no offense), but the Seahawks are also playing. As far as throwing out your stats, they compiled that ranking mostly WITH the injured players, but now do not have them. Henceforth, their current defense will not be the same one that was ranked 8th.

  8. I assume most of the country will be getting Rams-Eagles, so I am not sure how much different the viewing area would be for that Jags-Seahawks at 4 than it would have been at 1.

  9. Ooh, Jerry Jones is gonna be mad…How DARE the NFL pulls his Cowboys out a a 4:25 Fox NFC East Lovefest slot!

    They listened when I said they could expect low ratings when they put crap teams like the Cowboys on. Who knew?

  10. who cares. Hawks O-line gave up zero sacks for the first time in like ten years last game. Seattle is slowly changing to a pass first team and if their O-line continues to get better Russell Wilson will win my my fantasy league $$$$$$

    Actually, in the last 4 weeks, the Seahawks have been without Earl Thomas for 2 games, Kam Chancellor for 2 games, Richard Sherman for 2 games, Shaq Griffin for 2 games, and Cliff Avril, who was a Pro Bowler last year, has been out for the last 7 games. Before the run of injuries to the secondary, the Seahawks were #1 in scoring defense. So they were actually #1 in defense with Sherman, Thomas, Chancellor, Griffin and Avril healthy.

  12. The Seahawks are 8th in defense without 2 Hall of Famers, another Hall of Famer missing 2 games and their starting RCB missing the last 2 games.
    =====

    I’ll put this into perspective for you;

    Kenny Easley
    4x 1st Team All-Pro
    1x 2nd Team All-Pro
    1984 NFL Defensive Player of the Year
    1980s NFL All-Decade Team

    .. Easley was elected to the Hall by the Senior Committee, which is to say, he barely made it. He belongs, anyone who saw him play wouldn’t dipute that, but he barely made it nevertheless.

    SO;

    Kam Chancellor……………………..
    Never a 1st Team All-Pro
    2x 2nd Team All-Pro

    Richard Sherman……
    3x 1st Team All-Pro
    1x 2nd Team

    Earl Thomas
    4x 1st Team All-Pro
    1x 2nd Team

    .. Kam and Sherm have no chance of making the Hall if their careers are over. No chance whatsoever. Seahawks Ring of Honor, sure. Hall of Famers? No. Sorry.

    Earl has alot of good if not great football left. I think he has a real shot.

  13. Seattle is bad. Their players can give them a chance to win, but when you combine that with Pete “Jet Fuel Doesn’t Melt Steel Beams” Carroll and Darrell “I like shiny things” Bevell’s play calling, the team is doomed. Blair Walsh is just the icing on the cake.

    but Pitt getting 4 prime time games in a row is absurd

    Absurd indeed. Unless of course you like high TV ratings, sold out games, and a top notch product in prime time.

    ————————————————-
    Without Wilson’s legs and throwing on the run ability this team would only win 5-6 games a year and would never have won a Super Bowl. Very few plays work as designed and Bevell is realistically in the bottom 5 as far as OC’s go. Yet…the more Wilson does his thing…Bevell is the hero. He is the most fortunate OC in the league. It’s a shame Wilson is hamstrung by such a BAD OC. Cable isn’t much help either. It’s amazing how many times you see their O-line step the wrong way off the snap and get beat…or don’t square up for a block and get pushed backward. That’s coaching. Cable and Bevell must have pictures of Carroll and Schneider in compromising positions for their jobs to seem so secure.

  16. This is a good makeup for the past few years where the Seahawks have been hosed with early games on the east coast. Games in which they regularly played poorly.

    No west coast team should have to play the early game when traveling east. It’s a huge advantage for the home team.

    And Easley was great and deserves to be in the hall of fame, but he never played on a team that not only was a good all around team, but notorious for being the best defensive team for multiple years. They also won a superbowl and almost won a 2nd. As far as I’m concerned, I’ll be surprised if all 3 of the LOB aren’t HOF’ers. Kam might have the longest shot, but I still think he deserves it.

  17. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of either team or not, Ravens-Steelers games are always hard-hitting, entertaining games usually decided by one score. Best rivalry in the NFL only behind Bears-Packers and that’s really only because of their longer history against eachother.
