We’re at the point of the NFL season where the little league starts shuffling around schedules in order that more people can enjoy marquee matchups. On Tuesday, the little league announced the primary flexed video games of the 2017 season.
The Saints undertake the Rams in Week 12. It’s a quality matchup between two of the NFC’s top groups, and the outcome could have an impact on the playoff picture. It was originally planned for 1 p.m. ET. However the little league has relocated it to 4:25 ET on CBS, according to the NFL’s senior director of football communications Randall Liu.
The Titans’ video game against the Colts will remain at 1 p.m. ET, but it will change to FOX.
There’s another modification for Week 13, looked after involves the Saints. The Panthers will happen to be New Orleans to handle the Saints for the next time this year. That game was formerly set to kick off at 1 p.m. ET. It will shift to 4:25 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on FOX.
The 1 p.m. ET game between the Broncos and Dolphins will also be aired on FOX.
Sometimes the league moves more interesting video games to Sunday Night Football, but that’s not happening in either of these weeks, probably as the rules only permit the league to achieve that twice per season. Those matchups between the Packers and Steelers in Week 12 and the Eagles and Seahawks in Week 13 will remain the same.
The league must give 12 times notice to teams when changing the start time of a Sunday game. The NFL can only apply flexible scheduling to video games on Sundays. They can’t shift other video games to or from Thursday Nights Football or Monday Nights Football. Sorry, folks. Which means we’re all stuck with one more primetime Dolphins game.
