Didn't expect that, but okay...
So the Pats will know the likelihood of Houston losing before they kickoff, and will force the Broncos to play to win.
It only makes sense to me if they also moved Texans/Colts to 4:25 start also. To go along with Broncos/Chiefs
Just saw that on NBC. That means they would have had to have flexed that out bye last Wed?
Not for week 17. The last week is days out.
So we'll know if we're playing for a bye, basically, since the Broncos aren't going to lose to KC. Not bad.
Why would they not flex Texans-Colts to the late game instead? It's a much better game, it features Andrew Luck, TWO playoff teams. This is retarded. What am I missing?
Was Ind/Hou flexed as well?
Well if Houston and Baltimore win expect to see Mallett at QB and a secondary of Arrington, Cole, Chung and Wilson.
Come on put your tin foil hat on. It's obvious Robert Kraft called up Goddell and told him to move the game so Bill could coach according to the result of the Houston/Indy game.
Indy win= Brady, Gronk and all hands on deck
Houston win= Mallet and the 2nd string defense in the 2nd quarter
RATINGS. Plus it now forces Denver/NE to have to "play" to win. And also forces Texans to play to win.
Denver/KC going on at the same time. Really depends on that game.
I think the Colts are going to lay down and rest everyone just like they did in the undefeated season....I hope they keep the Texans game at 1pm so we know the result by our game time. I think alot will change in if and when OUR players are rested if the Texans have won and everything is pretty much etched in stone...
I like this. It gives the Pats advantage to know the results before their game starts. Hoping very much for a Texans choke. This would give the Pats the bye with a win.
I love this, now if Houston wins vs. Indy Bill will know whether we can rest more guys that are dinged up. I wouldn't rest too many guys, though, since it usually leads to a lot of rust in the playoffs.
Everyone seems to be forgetting the Broncos/Chiefs game. Is it likely the Chiefs win no, but people need to remember that. If that game is close the Pats stay with starters
The Polian regime is gone, with the coach returning from cancer they aren't about to lie down at home.
No it depends on that Houston/Indy game. Denver will have that game put away by halftime. KC ran for 352 yards today and could only put 13 points up.
Not sure I agree with that, but I hope you are right.
Hopefully, the fact that it is a division game will inspire the Colts to try and deprive Houston of a bye.
Cowboys-Redskins flexed to Sunday Night Football in Week 17
Now the boys/skins game has been moved to sunday night .... would be great if the giants can see their chance of making the playoffs go down the sewer on sunday night :rocker:
And what else I love so much about this- now, no matter what, our injured/dinged up/fatigued guys will have one week of rest at some point.
Whether it's the Colts winning and we get the bye week or if Houston wins we can rest players.
