    Winner wins the AFC West Division Title

    Cowboys @ Eagles

    A: Win
    B: Bucs loss (vs Raiders)

    Eagles clinch 6th seed with...
    A: Win
    B: Bucs loss (vs Raiders)

    Dolphins @ Jets

    Dolphins clinch AFC East Division Title with...
    A: Win

    Jets clinch AFC East Division title with...
    A: Win
    B: Patriots loss (@ Bills)

    Jets clinch final Wild Card spot with...
    A: Win
    B: Ravens loss (vs Jaguars)

    Jets not being flexed would be huge for us. Personally, if I'm running things you're flexing the Chargers/Broncos game. It's the only game where your guaranteed both teams will have a shot at the playoffs, regardless of what happens earlier in the day.

    I've heard on the radio that it can't be Cowboys / Eagles since they have already taken their maximum # of NFC/FOX games.

    As much as I hate it, I have to think that the league wants Favre on primetime TV.

    I heard that on Mike Francesca as well, but he then said he was wrong and it possibly could be flexed.

    Not sure though.

    If there is a flex it better be the effin Broncos/Chargers game. That is huge from a football fan standpoint when you look back to the first meeting between them.

    It's likely to be DEN/SD, but it's also likely that as a result MIA/NYJ moves to 4PM, which is no better for us than if it moves to 8PM.

    The SD/Den game will be moved to 8.

    CBS will then move the Jets/Phins to fill in as their national TV game at 4.

    Flex the Chargers and Broncos--they both have something to play for no matter what. If the Patriots beat Buffalo at 1, then the Jets have nothing to play for and the game could be boooooring.

    The Patriots playoff hopes may very well depend on the Dolphin/Jets game NOT being flexed.

    If the Jets begin that game knowing that the Patriots and Ravens both won, they'll have nothing to play for.

    If they keep that game at the 1:00, the Jets be playing for the playoff lives.

    Man, I hate that scenario as well!

    Jets will already know if they're done in that situation as well.

    lol the 0-16 or bust game?

    I might break things. I can't believe our playoff hopes rest upon now the SCHEDULING of the games.

    They probably know right now. I'm sure they'll announce it at some point during the Giants/Panthers game if not before.

    Am I right that this is not solely the network's decision?

    If so, the NFL better come down heavily on the side of FAIRNESS for every team.

    The main reason I think NBC won't chose the Jets-Phins is because the Patriots will be favored at Buffalo, and the night game might end up being a flop for a deflated Jets team.

    Re: Which game will be flexed next Sunday night?

    Yeah they probably will .. found that they need to give 6 days notice .. so tomorrow at the latest I guess... it would be bad for the Pats if the Jets/Phins game gets moved but I wont automatically say Jets tank.. Mangini would be fighting for a job, as much as I dislike Favre he isnt a guy to throw in the towel, the Jets and Dolphins hate each other too and no way do they want to see Pennington leave for the Phins then win the AFC East with them.. so I still feel ok if for some reason they get moved.. it isnt my first choice obviously.. but the NFL isnt awarding the Phins the division, just moving when they play :)

    Falcons clinched a playoff spot today with their win over the Vikings.

    Great turnaround for them this season.

    Just said it on NBC.

    That's good for us. But they could still put the Jets at 4.

    NBC just promo'd Chargers-Broncos for next Sunday night. Does that mean that Jets-Dolphins is staying at 1:00, or will they move that to 4:15?

    Broncos @ Chargers flexed for Week 17 SNF

    Good thing because now the Jets won't have an opportunity to tank to the Dolphins intentionally if they know their playoff fate ahead of time. Now they have to play at the same time as the Patriots and Ravens.
