    I always enjoys reading the TV experts thoughts on this matter.

    Week 7 Pats vs Bears
    CBS has Cowboys/Redskins @4:25
    NBC has Rams/Niners @8:20
    How do the Rams do ratings wise ?

    Week 10 Pats vs Titans
    CBS has Seahawks/[email protected]:25

    Week 14 Pats vs Dolphins
    CBS has Broncos/49ers & Bengals/[email protected]:05
    NBC has Steelers/Raiders @8;20

    Hopefully not. Already too many night games.

    Pats Bears would make a lot of sense flexing into the Rams-49ers spot.

    Agreed. I thought at one time there was a limit on the number of night games each team can play.

    I hope they don't get flexed.

    I think the league will be tentative flexing the Rams out of prime time. They're trying to build the brand in LA. Even if it's a blowout I think they want buzz around that team to build up the stars and get household recognition to help sell football in LA>

    Yes. The Rams are clearly the new NFL blowboys.

    Can we get Pats/Bills flexed out of MNF instead?

    I'm not sure it will happen because it would make 5 straight prime time games for them.

    Weeks 5-9
    Colts- TNF
    Chiefs- SNF
    Bears- 1pm
    Bills- MNF
    GB- SNF

    Think Saints/Ravens could get flexed that week or Chiefs/Bengals

    Chiefs Bengals would be good, but I’m not sure the market is there to replace Rams 9ers

    Flexed I don't know but fixed you can always expect at least one.

    Also remember that CBS and FOX get to protect some number of games from being flexed to SNF.

    We already have 5 primetime games(TNF, 3x SNF, MNF) so they could only flex one more game unless the rules have changed.

    I think that is why the NFL is doing Saturday flexing this year.

    They want to see how it goes.
    Then they will do it for MNF down the road to keep the right fees high.

    That MNF game is a dud from a national standpoint.

    The NFL is not legally allowed to televise games on Fridays or Saturdays until the college football regular season is over. So there's not much Saturday flexing they can do.

    Good call on this.

    Week 16 there can be some flexing into Saturday.
    Pats game is not one of the games I don't think
