    Re: NFL flex-schedule makes first change

    Here's that week's schedule:

    WEEK 10
    Sunday, Nov. 12
    GAME TIME SIRIUS Radio
    AWAY HOME
    Baltimore at Tennessee 1:00 p.m. 107

    Buffalo at Indianapolis 1:00 p.m. 125 123
    Cleveland at Atlanta 1:00 p.m. 118 118
    Green Bay at Minnesota 1:00 p.m. 122 181
    Houston at Jacksonville 1:00 p.m. 158 158
    Kansas City at Miami 1:00 p.m. 110 143
    N.Y. Jets at New England 1:00 p.m. 146 146
    San Diego at Cincinnati 1:00 p.m. 130 119
    San Francisco at Detroit 1:00 p.m. 117 117
    Washington at Philadelphia 1:00 p.m. 144 144
    Denver at Oakland 4:05 p.m. 125 143
    Dallas at Arizona 4:15 p.m. 110 123
    New Orleans at Pittsburgh 4:15 p.m. 153 153
    St. Louis at Seattle 4:15 p.m. 147 130
    Chicago at N.Y. Giants 8:15 p.m. 147 152

    CBS and FOX each get to protect one game a weekend (or have a certain number of "protects" - no time to look it up now, ready to go home).

    I'd guess that these are the "protects" for Week 10:
    CBS:
    San Diego @ Cincinnati
    FOX:
    Washington @ Philadelphia

    Now, if I *REALLY* had to guess, I'd say that CBS did protect that game and that FOX passed on protecting anything for later in the year.
    I'll look into that tomorrow.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Okay - I looked into it a bit more:

    CBS and FOX will each be able to protect a total of five games in the seven weeks of flexible scheduling, but not more than one game in any week.
