    It seems like the Patriots are being demoted, but I like the 1 pm start much better.

    I don't think this decision had a darn thing to do with the Patriots as much as it did the Colts. And fact is NBC wouldn't want to overexpose the Patriots when it's a horrible matchup.

    I could easily see the season finale against Buffalo getting flexed up to 8:30 though.

    One less game I get to watch on my couch, one more reason to hate the Colts.

    God dammit

    The New Year's Day game could decide the division...as long as we take of business on Sunday and if the Bills get back on track.

    I still can't figure out how the Jets beat them so badly.

    The Colts were originally scheduled to come to Gillette for a Sunday night game in prime time but it has now been flexed to 1pm.

    Obviously a lot of us saw this coming as it will probably not be a competitive game but still disappointing that the Patriots lost a nationally broadcasted game for fans that want to see them around the country.

    Patriots-Colts flexed to 1 p.m. - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston
    Welcomed by the local fans ... not so much the case with out-of-town fans.



    Pats-Colts no longer a night game - CSNNE.com
    Let's not go overboard, this move has nothing to do with the Pats. If Manning was playing they'd leave this game on as long as the Colts had a couple wins.

    Someone up thread mentioned the Week 17 game being flexed to 8:30, there aren't any night games for Week 17 (Sunday or Monday) to make it fair for all playoff teams, so that's not going to happen.

    Yes there is. No game is scheduled yet because NBC gets to pick what game they want a week before.

    If the division comes down to the Pats and Bills winning it I could see that game getting flexed to the night game.

    It has nothing to do with the Pats being demoted. Have you seen the Colts' record? Believe me, with the Pats 5-3 and if the Colts had Manning and a similar record, no one would even think about flexing it. I also like 1:00 pm starts, in fact it's my favorite time.

    Wow, now the entire nation doesn't get to see the Colts intentional fumbles, intentional missed passes and blocks and lack of effort on tackling from their backups as Polian has IR'd his top players in his Suck For Luck quest.

    1pm makes perfect sense, I'm sure the Commish is for not having this 'intentional tanking' scene on national television.

    Obvious move is obvious. If #18 was there, I'm pretty sure they'd have the same record as us going into that game.
