  1. The NFL and NBC will once again be kicking themselves for not flexing Green Bay into prime time. Just like last year’s non-prime time thriller in week 17 at Chicago. Some people never learn their lesson.

    Bypassing a national following, MVP candidate, and a frisky Detroit team for an aging lard ball in Pittsburgh? Or did Collinsworth beg the bosses to see his Bengals?

    Either way, bad flex choice.

  2. Great move NFL — put them on at the same time, all I have to do now is go buy another television so I can enjoy both, Thanks, it’s a brilliant move.

  3. This is great. Just at first glance it appears that there will only be 4 games that don’t have any potential postseason impact. Great! NFL schedulers have to be patting themselves on the back with some of these match-ups coming down to week 17.

  4. Well, the Steelers switch from 1 to 8:30 screwed up our plans. We have 9 people driving down from Erie, planning to drive back. Now because they work for a living, they’re not coming.

    Funny, when we picked that game I remarked that it could be flexed but we rolled the dice.

    And it’s supposed to snow.

    Much has been said about NO SHOWS. Well, this is the Steelers 6th night game this year…I realize not all of the home…but they go so late most people I know have to DVR the second half even when it’s on the road.

    I guess RELEVANCE in the NFL is directly related to how many of your games are at 1:00 local time. I guess that’s the only thing the Browns have over us.

  5. so in Philly we get the see the crap eagles play at 1pm instead of the packers vs lions since cbs has the double header.

    awesome. way to go NFL.

  6. Why? It’s just bad football……. I would like to see the ratings between that and the NFC North game.

  7. tomthebombtracy,

    Is it not worth it to your friends to have one sleepy day at work to witness the Steelers kick the Bengals ass in primetime?

    Maybe you need friends that are more fun.

  8. @johnthebiscuit
    Nice way to bail yourselves out of watching a great NFC South matchup possibly.

    That ain’t happening biscuit boy! Not this time around! The North come back to Cincy…again!

  9. So all the games that matter are on at the same time. How could you question the wisdom of the NFL on anything i.e. domestic violence, drug testing, ect.

  10. So an earlier article stated the NFL chose the Pitt-Cincy game over Atlanta-Carolina because it would be unfair to again take yet again flex a game from Fox, but then they took the game from Fox they would have flexed and gave it to CBS?

  11. Great.

    So I used to be able to see Lions vs. Packers in the morning and 49ers vs. Cardinals in the afternoon here on the West Coast….

    …but now I get to watch bowling in the morning and then try to find a sports bar with 1 seat open so I can watch Lions vs Packers in the afternoon because there’s no way Fox on the West Coast is going to play Packers/Lions over anything having to do with the 49ers or Cardinals.

    Thanks a LOT NFL!! Lord knows the World just couldn’t possibly go without seeing which sorry excuse for a franschise was going to eventually win the NFC South with a losing record.
