The NFL has announced that they will announce Wednesday what, if any, game will be flexed for Sunday night December 18th. NBC (and the league) would like to move Patriots/Broncos (with Mr. Ratings Tim Tebow) to prime-time Sunday night, but CBS (and the Patriots) are holding firm that they want the game to remain at 4:15pm. CBS had earlier protected Jets/Eagles for week 15, but after losing Broncos/Vikings last Sunday to FOX, CBS obvious wants the ratings grab. We’ll see who wins on Wednesday.
Here’s the full release from the NFL –
Due to NFL Committee Meetings in New York today, the Week 15 flexible schedule announcement will be released tomorrow (Wednesday, December 7). All of the clubs under consideration to have Week 15 games flexed have informed our office that they are interested in the strongest schedule for our fans and network partners.
