    Flex schedule question

    If the tentative Sunday night game gets moved for another game that week, whats the time slot that tentative game takes?
    East coast game 1pm, West coast game 4pm? or it takes the time slot for the game that was moved?

    I tried to look this up but didn't come across an answer.

    Thanks.

    It'll be 4pm because the Chargers are on the west coast.

    Depends on the Giants. They would do 1 or 4:25. My guess is 1 but depends what time they want to make the Giants game.

    Giants are at Baltimore scheduled for 1pm, so odds are Jets Chargers will be at 4, unless Giants get moved to the night game.

    Giants vs. Ravens would be an enticing game for the late kick off.

    NBC will absolutely flex that joke of a game. After the Thanksgiving debacle, do not expect to be on NBC at all next season. Why they would have even selected the Norv-led Chargers for a Sun night game in the first place is a mystery. At least we were good entertainment (for the wrong reasons) when they selected us.

    It'll be Giants-Ravens unless Fox protects that game or protects another game from being moved on a different week.

    Other possibilities for that SNF:

    Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh
    New Orleans @ Dallas
    San Francisco @ Seattle
    Buffalo @ Miami

    Zero chance NBC will stick with Chargers-Jets which'll be moved to 1 p.m.

    I would love for it to be a 1pm game.

    We'll find out about the status of the San Diego game on the Tuesday following the Jacksonville game. NFL rules state that flex scheduling must take place no later than 10 days before a scheduled game, unless it's a Week 17 game, as those games times are decided the Monday following Week 16.

    If I had to guess the game will be flexed to 1:00pm with the Giants-Ravens game either being moved into Primetime or to a 4:25pm slot.

    The 4-7 Jets against the 4-7 Chargers is fifth or sixth most enticing match-up of that week.

    This is the 98% likely scenario, but 4:05 can't be ruled out.

    I don't think Fox is going to protect the Giants v Ravens. They have to have the Bears@Az and/or 49ers@ Seattle on late. If they did, they might want it early, especially if Pitt/Cin gets flexed. I can't imagine them protecting a game to go late, when Chi, SF and likely LA...in fact the whole west coast doesn't get it. I think they would rather get Giants Ravens early, and go regional, adding NO/Dallas to the late slot. That covers Fox pretty well if NBC goes 9ers/Hawks

    Balt, Pitt, NO, Dallas all have very tough schedules the next couple of weeks. I could see a scenario with both Fox and CBS are given the go ahead to show two games each in this market even though the Jets are home. I think they can do that week 16.

    If that happens, the Jets could easily be a 4:05 game, with Giants @ Ravens being early and going to most of the country where regional early action isn't required, CBS would get the go ahead to run Pitt or NE game against the Giants@ Ravens here in NY.

    Then again....maybe the Jets could just have their first Blackout in forever

    Can't see Woody the exposure hound letting that happen.

    What network (Fox or CBS) has the prime double-header game that weekend?

    That will probably answer the question.

    FOX.

    Giants-Ravens (a FOX game) could be flexed to 4:25, with Jets-Chargers moving up to 1.

    Fox would probably be thrilled if they could get the league to move SF-Seattle to Sunday night and have the Giants-Ravens moved into the 4:25 slot.

    Bingo, that's what will happen.
