There is no night game scheduled next week. Any word on whether they would flex this game? (seeing that they just had Dal-NYG on SNF not too long ago..)

Please NFL don't move it to a night game. 5:00 AM is too tough to get up & go to work after a 8:40 PM kick off. Leave it as scheduled please.

i hope not for 2 things..... giants suck at primetime... secondly... i wake up for work around 1am..... so if giants play at night...im stuck watching the game and attempting to sleep during the day..which was a miserable fail the last night game vs the cowgirls...i was dying at work

They will probably flex our game.

If not, the only other option is the Bengals-Ravens game.

Same here. I actually would be very suprised if they DONT flex this. I doubt there will be another game next week with this big playoff implications.

I'm with you here. Do they even play prime time games week 17? Seems like it wouldn't be fair for a team to play Sunday night and the next Saturday. Maybe not.

Ah, never mind:

"A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the change will be announced no later than six days before the game. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot to conclude the season."

"Fox and CBS each may protect a total of five Sunday afternoon games, not more than one per week, during weeks 11-16 and NBC selects which game they want to air. FOX and CBS cannot protect games in week 17. The week 17 game on Sunday night is decided exclusively by the NFL, with no restrictions; CBS and FOX cannot protect games, but NBC cannot pick its game. There are no restrictions on which game the NFL can select. Since 2010 when the NFL began scheduling only divisional matchups in week 17, it is possible an intradivisional game that appeared on national TV previously could be selected again. The NFL will only select such a game if there is no other suitable option."

Fox advertised the game as "America's Game of the Week" for next Sunday so I'm guessing 4:15.

It is already advertised as game of the week at 4pm on FOX. I bet it goes to NBC. What game is more important next week that will get bigger ratings than the two biggest football markets in the country trying to make the playoffs?
