    I see SD@TB is the 8:pM game. Not that compelling in my view.
    Good story lines for both the Pats & Cardinals.
    Thoughts ?

    Depends if they think it's a better story than SD and TB. At least in the AZ NE game it COULD be the story of two teams gunning for the playoffs. But I'm not willing to look past the Oakland game. Every game is the biggest game of the year.

    I think the network has to decide by tomorrow if i'm not mistaken.

    But Arizona is already in the playoffs and may be locked into either the #3 or #4 seed depending on what Carolina does tonight and next week. In that case, for them, it's a matter of getting healthy for the playoffs....

    I think we all much prefer those guys coming east for a 1pm game anyway. They are likely the toughest game on the schedule, not factoring in our continuous losses on D. Them not needing the win (though me thinks the QB wants stats) and it being an early game in the cold probably helps us out a lot.

    True, they have 12 days (except for Week 17, where they have 6) to make a decision, and Fox doesn't have any 4:15 PM games scheduled yet. I'm not sure it gets flexed to primetime, but I do think it will be moved to 4:15. Fox has Car @ NYG, Phi @ Was, and Atl @ Min that week too. I think the Giants get moved to NBC (I assume that wouldn't put them over their primetime limit), Phi @ Was stays at 1 to be the lead early game, and Atl-Min and Ari-NE get moved to 4:15... just my humble guesses...

    During flex scheduling weeks, the only games that are pre-scheduled for 4 are Pacific time zone games that can't start before 1 PM.

    Let's take care of Oakland first.

    EDIT: I agree with the poster who said that the Cards are in so what's the story. Also, personally, I like it that we're flying under the radar screen this year after the circus of last season. I think BB has said that the team would prefer it if all of their games were at 1:00.

    Ravens-Cowboys will probably be the prime time game.

    Ironically, they flexed us out of last night's prime time game and our game turned out to be much better than the one they showed. I don't think they are going to move it. Nobody wants to see the Pats anymore and AZ already clinched.

    I was wondering about that option also.
    Does the same 12 days notice apply ?
    I think Carolina @ NY is a good option. I don't know what the buzz is nationwide with K.W. possibly breaking one of Marino's records. That is why I asked about this game.

    Re: Could the Arizona@New England game be moved to prime time ?

    Yeah that's mostly true... Pats-Steelers was 4:15 PM from jump street, though, and I'm pretty sure Cowboys-Steelers was the same... It's just emphasis that Fox will switch at least 2 1PM games to 4:15, and NBC will likely gobble up another Fox game. I don't think SD-TB has enough oomph to stay in that slot...

    I am with you. I am not hoping it happens. Just wondering if it will.
