    So it looks like the Bears/Pats game may stay at 1:00 PM after all...

    Anybody CBS and Fox would use to call the game would be a vast improvement over the Sunday night crew.

    Not so fast.....

    The game can still be moved to 4:15 PM. Fox has the Sunday 1 / 4 rights for the Pats that week. NFL.com lists Fox as having the 4:15 national game of the week with the game being TBA. If you look at the schedule, you will notice all of Fox's games are listed for 1 PM starts. One will have to be moved.

    My guess. The Pats / Bears and Colts / Eagles will both be moved into either the 4:15 or 8:15 time slots.

    I hope it moves into Sunday Night Football because that will probably be the only way I will catch it in my area. Nothing like ruining a perfect season:)

    Patriots/Dolphins? Redskins/Bucs? Chiefs/Chargers? If NBC wants to stick with that lineup then they get what they deserve. Obviously I'll watch the Pats game but those other two? No way. I thought the point was to pick the best games.

    On Nov 19th I can come up with at least 5 better games then WAS/TB:
    ATL/BAL CIN/NO IND/DAL SD/DEN STL/CAR

    On Dec 10th 5 games better then Pats/MIA :
    IND/JAX NO/DAL NYG/CAR PHI/WAS DEN/SD

    On Dec 17th 3 games better then KC/SD:
    PHI/NYG PIT/CAR WAS/NO

    I definitely agree with the fact that they could have better games on those particular weeks. Hopefully those were their choices during the preseason and hopefully those will change.

    Of course, it could also be that they would HAVE to go with those games based on the five game max for teams to be on primetime.

    My hunch is that Fox will protect Pats/Bears and move it to 4:15. I loathe those 4:15 games -- not day, not night, and eating up both.

    For tailgating I like the 4:15 the best. We'll have the 1:00 game on the TV as we're grilling. Plus I like drinking at noon versus 9:00 when the lot opens. When the game ends we have burgers and dogs and watch the 5th quarter. The nights are the worst. I hate getting home late (usually after 1) and having to get up and work the next day.

    I think it sucks.
    I mean it is nice that they can change the time slots, but if cbs and fox can request/protect a certain amount of games, NBC doesn't really get a nice one after all.

    How many games can cbs and fox protect??
    Is this number per week or per season?

    anyone?
