The NFL has made the prime time schedule better in December.

The league announced today that flexible scheduling has been employed for both Week 13 and Week 14, moving better games into the Sunday Night Football slot than the ones that were previously scheduled.

In Week 13, the Sunday night game on December 2 will now be the Chargers at the Steelers on NBC. The 49ers-Seahawks game that had originally been scheduled for prime time has now been moved to 4:25 p.m. ET on FOX.

In Week 14, the Sunday night game on December 9, will now be the Rams at the Bears on NBC. The Pittsburgh Steelers-Raiders game originally scheduled for prime time has now been moved to 4:25 p.m. ET on FOX.

The rest of the Week 13 and Week 14 schedules will remain in place.

  1. How dare they move the Raiders from primetime,the whole country is going to be upset about this!! Now I have something to protest

  2. I love the flex scheduling for Sunday nights. I just wish something could be done to fix Monday and Thursday games. I wish the NFL would just god rid of Thursday games, and just make every Monday a doubleheader instead like week 1.

  3. Okay, Bears … home vs Vikings and now Rams flexed. I guess our Bears are relevant again!

  4. They will regret this choice. Bears are going to get exposed on Sunday as frauds. Last place schedule really helping them look good!

  5. They gotta solve the Thursday night football issue. Not worth watching everybody playing at 70% because they haven’t fully recovered from the previous week. You can tell when every Thursday night game is a blowout..

  6. Bears-Rams: NFC CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW!

    Moronic NFL schedule makers. Everytime they cross the Bears off the primetime schedule, they have a big year and get flexed in like crazy.

    Like idiots they stupidly booked they them the first 2 weeks. Oh and also gave them 4 STRAIGHT AFC EAST games.

    I mean seriously, who does the scheduling? Pee Wee Herman?

  7. Rams on Sunday Night Football two weeks in a row now…If Eagles keep losing, I’m guessing Patriots/Steelers gets flexed into the Rams/Eagles Week 16 spot.

  8. Chargers and Steelers will be a great game if both teams stay on the trajectory they on at this time….Chargers at 7-2 with them playing the Broncos and Cardinals before the Steelers and the Steelers are at 6-2-1 with the Jags and Broncos before the playing the Chargers at home
    Both River and Roethlisberger have passer ratings over 100 with both having thrown 21 TD’s each and Rivers has 4 int’s…Roethlisberger has 7 int’s
    If neither team slips….9-2 Chargers vs 8-2-1 Steelers should be a great game

  9. Awesome job by the NFL. What a great idea. No wonder the league keeps breaking revenue records every year. Oops, I wasn’t supposed to say that. I take that back. I’m not watching football anymore. All the protestors and the new rules, etc. I think I’m going to go fishing instead. Lol. Or maybe I’ll work on that quilt.

    Interesting… No Packers games flexed… interesting.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

    What I find even more interesting is the fact that some people are so desperately obsessed with the Packers, they’re compelled to randomly interject them into any and every conversation, even those that have nothing to do with the Packers at all.

  12. Yeah, and the really great thing about it is the outstanding game coverage from the NBC crew, the best in the business.

    _____________________________
    You do realize that there haven’t been “last place schedules” in the NFL in years. With the exception of 2 games everyone in a division plays the same teams.

  14. Maybe next time before the NFL schedules a team that has been a bottom feeder for the last several seasons like the SF 49ers they will actually make them EARN IT!!!!! The NFL got what they deserved in this case as everyone but whoever scheduled the 49ers to all those prime-time games knew that would come back to haunt the NFL as everyone knew SF would suck this year. Even before Jimmy G went down they werent good. That roster is a aways away from being good especially now that Jimmy G appears to be Sam Bradford 2.0 now that he has suffered 3 injuries 2 of them serious in the span of 10 career starts, I dont even think Sam Sadford himself can top that level of fragility.

    I mean they’re on SNF in week 12 but whose paying attention..And their only enticing game game besides the Falcon game in week 14 that wasn’t flexed is the Bear game but I don’t think they have the same matchup in the regular season on SNF twice in the same season..

    Good stuff. That Bears-Rams game could be for the 2nd seed and a bye.
    ————–
    Or, it could be the bears looking up at .500 after their 4th straight loss. They’re definitely better than the last few years, but they’re still the bears.

  17. While normally I like the Steelers playing night games, this change actually should help the Chargers. West Coast teams playing 1 pm East Coast games don’t typically have a great record – – Chargers won’t be sleep-walking through that game now.

  18. Please, NFL, oh PLEASE get rid of the Thursday night games. Since neither the players nor the fans want Thursday night ball, who are you playing them for?

    Yea, Tom Brady looked great last week 😒

  20. People talk the most trash when they are scared or intimidated by what they see. For example: insecure Vikings fans who are on their way to being dethroned by a better defensive, and well, just an overall far superior Bears team.

    The TV dollars.

  22. Another gd nightgame. How many is that for the Steelers this year six. I hate staying up past 9:30. Geez.

  23. It’s amazing how many primetime games the Niners were given going into this year.

    The NFL put way too much stock into an injury-prone Jimmy G having a handful of good games against bad teams and teams resting players for the playoffs.

  24. Good moves. I would much rather watch some other game than the Seattle Frisco game even though I am a 49er fan. Both teams have losing records and are realistically out of the playoff race. Of course I don;t like watching the Vegas Raiders. I stopped liking them when they moved to LA in the 1980s. I cannot wait for them to move again, and I hope their stadium is completed ahead of schedule.

    ==================================

    Guess what – you’re not FORCED to watch Thursday Night games. If you hate it so much, turn off your tv. Go read a book, spend time with your family/friends or go work on your basket-weaving skills, etc. For the millions of fans that do enjoy it, we don’t need blowhards to ruin things for us just because you don’t like it.

    Please give us more Steelers prime time games. They always play their best under the lights it seems.

    Flexing good games to Sunday night is great.

    I just hope they dont start doing it for Mon and Thurs. Keep the good stuff on Sundays.

    *********************************************************************************

    They really can’t flex games to another day. People book airfare and hotel rooms to go to games. Moving it to another day would be a disaster of epic proportions with out of town fans.

  29. The NFL should just go ahead and make the Raiders forfeit the rest of their games this season. This would spare the rest of the fans from being forced to watch this rolling dumpster fire they call the Raiders plus it would keep other players from getting a injury playing a meaningless game.
