    Sunday nighter vs Chicago Bears

    Who knows when NBC has to decide whether if there going to flex this game or not?
    Or if they decided already what there going to do?

    Im going to this game (my first game in Minnesota) so i really hope its a night game, i cant really see NBC flexing this game because its a divisional battle for a playoff spot, but there are other really good games that week too like: NYG @ WAS, CAR @ GB,
    DEN @ NYJ, and PIT @ NE


    Sorry if this is not the right place to post this

    They haven't said it yet

    But my guess if one happens it would go in this order

    Pit vs NE
    NY Vs Was
    Chi Vs Min

    Idk if they will or not I don't know how they decide that.. But that would be cool to have a night game again

    I am sure they will keep it. Especially if we are both 7-4.

    NFL Flexible Scheduling 101
    Begins Sunday of Week 11
    In effect during Weeks 11-17
    Only Sunday afternoon games are subject to being moved into the Sunday night window.
    The game that has been tentatively scheduled for Sunday night during flex weeks will be listed at 8:15 p.m. ET.
    The majority of games on Sundays will be listed at 1:00 p.m. ET during flex weeks except for games played in Pacific or Mountain Time zones which will be listed at 4:05 or 4:15 p.m. ET.
    No impact on Thursday, Saturday or Monday night games.
    The NFL will decide (after consultation with CBS, FOX, NBC) and announce as early as possible the game being played at 8:15 p.m. ET.

    The announcement will come no later than 12 days prior to the game.

    The NFL may also announce games moving to 4:05 p.m. ET and 4:15 p.m. ET.
    Week 17 start time changes could be decided on 6 days notice to ensure a game with playoff implications.
    The NBC Sunday night time slot in "flex" weeks will list the game that has been tentatively scheduled for Sunday night.
    Fans and ticket holders must be aware that NFL games in flex weeks are subject to change 12 days in advance (6 days in Week 17) and should plan accordingly.
    NFL schedules all games.
    Teams will be informed as soon as they are no longer under consideration or eligible for a move to Sunday night.

    www.nfl.com

    I would expect them to announce it right after this weeks game if they are going to change it.

    Thanks PPE for the Sig

    Peterson is the most exciting player in the NFL. Plus both teams should still have a chance to win the division. Plus these rivalry games are usually pretty close.
    They could have went with Miami-new england, or Giants-Arizona. But those teams are probably already schedule for other prime time games later in the season.

    It was announced in the Star-Tribune this AM that they WON'T be moving this game.

    Not that crazy since this basically decides the NFC North division...

    It helps but does not decide it. Still have 4 more games after that in a tight race.

    There should be a flesh out, where everybody comes to the game as Naked Ned.
    Of course people will have to wear thongs to keep things legal.
    The ladies could where those nipple tassles.
    If it doesn't help us win the game, at least all the Bears fans would be really uncomfortable.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!
