NFL flexes Giants-Commanders to Sunday night in Week 15

USA TODAY Sports

The NFL made several announcements for the Week 15 schedule on Monday afternoon, including moving the season’s second matchup between the Giants and Commanders into a national viewing window.

The Patriots and Raiders game has been flexed out of Sunday Night Football in favor of the NFC East contest. New England and Las Vegas will now play at 4:05 p.m. ET on FOX. New York and Washington will start at 8:20 p.m. on NBC on Dec. 18.

The NFL also has determined the three games for its Week 15 Saturday pool, with all three games shown on NFL Network. Colts at Vikings will start at 1 p.m., Ravens at Browns at 4:30 p.m. and Dolphins at Bills at 8:15 p.m. on Dec. 17.

Falcons at Saints and Lions at Jets were also eligible to play in one of the Saturday slots, but those games will start at 1 p.m. on Sunday. Falcons-Saints will be on FOX with Lions-Jets on CBS.

Week 15 will start with 49ers at Seahawks on Thursday night and conclude with Rams at Packers on Monday.

  1. Great. Because these two clown teams played to a tie (my Giants and WAS) I have to stay up late on a work night if I want to watch my team in two weeks. Gotta love prime time games (not).

  2. Wash vs NYG is a great game to flex. Two teams that match up well. A lot better than NE vs LV

  3. All I want for Christmas is for the Giants to bring Odell home and get him ramped up for this game. Jones was 16-17 passing (not all dumpoffs) throwing to a cast led by Darius Slayton (a nice WR but a third WR on every team in our division) and a hodgepodge of practice squad players you wouldn’t know if you fell over them. Jones one incompletion was a clock spike. He also ran for 75 yards. He’s not Joe Montana but he’s turning into dare I say an elite QB. Who knows if Odell can even play but Schoen owes it to us long suffering fans to give Jones a shot and not flush this opportunity to make the playoffs. Bring him home already!!!!!

  4. A new low for the Patriots, being flexed out for this. Thanks again to Belichick for forcing out Brady with no sucession plan and instead winging it

  5. no one wants to watch those boring teams on Sunday night football. we want to see Mcdaniels Vs Bill going head to head for that 7 seed! unbelievable

  6. I know that this makes sense from an NFL standpoint. My comment above was speaking as a Giants fan.

    Two garbage teams

    Yet they still have better records and QBs than the lowly Pats.

  8. I can’t say I was excited to watch LV/pats, but NYG/commanders doesn’t excite me either. I won’t be tuning into either game played at any time on any channel.

  9. If BB doesn’t revive his team this season and show signs of progress he stands a chance of being flexed out of New England, along with his coaching sons and friends.
    Maybe we misunderstood his “famous quote “Stats are for losers” because right now NE has all the offensive stats of losers. First in penalty differential, 31st in total offense (there is a worse team somewhere!), defense getting worn down fast. Matt Judon disappearing right on schedule. Being boring is worse than losing. When Parcells arrived, they lost plenty of games, but it was clear they were doing the right things. Now not so much.

  10. Yessssss!!! I’m a Patriots’ fan living on the east coast, and I HATE those prime time, sleep deprivation games. Love that Sunday afternoon slot – get the crock pot chili started early and it’s ready at half-time! 🙂

  11. Both teams have negative point differentials but only one NFL team leading it’s division gets ripped for having a low positive point differential this year.
