Yeah just got the message from the Ravens App.

For what game though? They can't seriously think the 49ers Falcons game is more important...

Yes, NBC has decided to flex the Bears-Eagles game into the 8:30 slot. Our game against the Patriots has been moved to a 4:25p.m start.

This makes 0 sense. In what world is Eagles vs Bears the better match up? It's not a terrible game, but Ravens Patriots is one of the best rivalries in the league right now.

They're skeered!  And the media is on such a Manning Brady Love Fest right now...  They would have to change their tunes if the Ravens beat the Pats in prime time...  So, we just beat them at 4:25 instead of 8:30 is all.

As PFT put it....

 

Chicago is currently tied with Detroit for NFC North supremacy (though the Lions own the tiebreaker), while Philadelphia is currently one game ahead of Dallas in the NFC East. That makes Bears-Eagles a big game.

 

That is why we were flexed out. If we were any better and a high playoff seeding was on the line this game wouldn't have been flexed out. Though I highly expect Ravens-Bengals to come down to Week 17 and be flexed into SNF so that will make up for this.

It probably has a lot to do with the Ravens offense not being fun to watch, and a potentially struggling Pats offense without Gronk.  The Bears and Eagles are more likely to score tons of points.

2 teams with electric offenses and bad defenses who are winning/tied for the division lead makes some sense... But really look at the last two weeks for the Ravens and Pats, those were 4 of the most exciting finishes of the year.

Strange. If Cowboys lose to GB, eagles win then they get division. If Bears lose this week they are likely out also. Then meaningless game. Ravens if even they lose still playing for WC or division possibly. NE still chasing HFA, and at at least first round bye, Cincinnati has tiebreaker over NE. Past 2 AFCCG games? Thats dumb.

Wow! Makes sense, why would anyone want to see Tom Brady vs. Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco?

 

Maybe if this was arguably the best non-conference rivalry in football or was a rematch of the last TWO AFC Championship games I could understand this decision... oh wait....

 

And they wonder why we have a chip on our shoulder.

 

Its ok... Baltimore vs. Everyone!

Surprised the NFL would shaft their Golden Boy Patriots to spite us...

Honestly, I am surprised that you (Poe) got second. After the draft I thought your team was doomed for failure.

You get used to it. Even posts that don't violate the rules aren't safe.

I'm okay with that. We already have @ Detroit this week on MNF. The world doesn't need that much us.

Actually neither Philly or Dallas can clinch the NFC East this week and neither Chicago, Detroit or Green Bay can clinch the North. Thus why they chose that game.

 

Though it does make you wonder how they kept Redskins-Giants on SNF yet they flexed Ravens-Patriots out of SNF.
