Does anyone else think that there's a chance that the week 14 match @Washington will be flexed to SNF? The scheduled game right now is Detroit/Green Bay, but with Detroit sitting at 4-7, I'm not sure that's an attractive matchup for NBC.

I hope it's not because I hate night games, but every other game that week is a stinker, so it think it's a huge possibility.

I hope not. When we have a late game, I end up doing nothing the rest of the day. At any rate, it will depend on how Washington looks next week. If win and the rest of the division loses, then it puts them back in the playoff race, if not then their season is officially in the toilet.

That game won't get flexed if the Lions-Packers game holds playoff implications; though the Ravens-Redskins match could be an attractive one, divisional battles historically get better ratings than interconference matches.

Unless the Redskins are suddenly #1 in the NFC East prior to Week 14, Lions-Packers will stay put or another game might get flexed instead.

I wish they flexed Cowboys-Eagles out of next Sunday's slot. Not even worth showing it on SNF.

I don't know about Wash-Bal being flexed, but Giants-Ravens makes a strong case to get flexed. The night game is San Diego-Jets, plus there really isn't a more interesting game that week that even compares to it

What about Denver-Baltimore getting flexed. Two divisions leaders sounds enticing.

That game I can see getting flexed, as well as Ravens-Broncos.

Can they flex a game from Sunday to Monday? That's the only chance I see of Ravens-Broncos being flexed. That Sunday night match-up of San Fran-New England is too good

The Ravens already said they will not flex any games this season.
I didn't now they had any say in it, but I did read it somewhere.

If Wash was in first in their division, absolutely..

But why would any NFL Official wanna put our putrid offense on SNF if they don't have to?!

I dunno, 9-2 might have something to do with it.

I dont think FOX will let NBC flex that Giants Ravens game that day on the 23rd. There are some bad matchups that night all the way across the board and FOX will want to protect that game for sure and not let it get away you gotta believe. I could definitely see the Steelers and Bengals getting flexed that night. While it's a good game I dont think CBS would totally block this game and I could definitely see it getting flexed since wildcard playoff implications will definitely be at stake in this game. One thing is for certain some game is going to be flexed that night because there is no way in hell NBC will keep the Chargers and Jets on Sunday night that week. These two games with the Giants Ravens and Steelers Bengals are definitely leading canidates for certain looking at the schedule that week in the NFL...

They can't. Think of it legistically, travel arrangements and all. The reason for NYG baltimore flex would be because NY is on Bus. But because teams fly (as well as fans) it's hard for them to make the trip when it's a days difference. They ususaly don't flex games.
