    Just because we think the Vikings are a good option, the NFL/NBC might not.
    Setting aside out personal bias (if you can, I know it's hard) is (IN TERMS OF MONEY AND RATINGS) CIN @ MIN a better draw than PHI @ NYG?

    Must not forget about the Favre, AD, and Jared factors.
    The viewing audience isn't decided only by the team and playoff implication it's WHO is in the game too.
    The Vikings have a triple whammy to draw non-team related fans.

    Not to mention two teams that are very good, as apposed to two teams that are very average. I think the downside is the smaller market though. The ratings on the east coast would be higher for Eagles @ Giants.

    I think the ratings across the entire country (minus upper midwest and western Ohio) would be higher for Eagles @ Giants.
    They play in a very competitive division chalk full of some of the largest market teams in the NFL.

    Re: Flex games start Week 10

    I love the idea of flex games. Primetime should always be the best potential games of the week. The colts-pats last week lived up to the hype. Lets see what happens this week
    We're bringing purple back.

    Browns/Ravens also lived up to the... umm... I'm not sure hype is the right word.

    MNF has no flex. They primarily show divisional games to make the fact that they might show bad teams later in the year. It's the best they can do.

    Ravens at Browns was a miss. Patriots at Saints will be a hit.

    I know that, I just think MNF has done a bad job at times getting good matchups.
    I guess every team has a minimum number of primetime games though if I'm not mistaken.
    Might as well get them out of the way.

    What could they have done differently? There are going to be bad matchups unless you can predict the future. How were they supposed to know that it was the Bengals and not the Browns who were going to have a surprising year? How were they supposed to know that the Ravens would be in the middle of a mediocre season? If the Saints had laid another egg this year, would you be complaining about the uneven Pats vs. Saints matchup?

    # of primetime games doesn't matter, but variety does. MNF chooses to pick divisional games because they have a higher chance of being good ones. I really can't knock that strategy.
