Re: 2014 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 15

Cincinnati at Cleveland is on FOX? The broadcast map lists it as a FOX early game. So has the CBS/AFC - FOX/NFC thing been abandoned? I know there were a few puzzlers earlier in the season as well.

Re: 2014 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 15

There is flex scheduling now between CBS/FOX. Games that would've only been on either network before (AFC on CBS) (NFC on FOX) can now be moved to the other network. I don't know the exact details, but it's a new thing for this year.

Re: 2014 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 15

Aahh...makes some sense especially when I see how many FOX markets are going to carry this game over the stinkers they had available to them - other than GB/BUF which could be a good game, though it is not exactly a rivalry steeped in tradition or played by teams not from two of the three or four smallest cities to host a professional franchise in major sports.

I really hope Tennessee gets blown out early so I can watch one of the better late games on. Otherwise, I'll have to sit through that high quality qb display of Geno Smith vs Jake Locker.

I would much rather still see GB and BUF. And thankfully that is still the plan in this area. Go Bills!

Lucky you, CBS affiliate for my area switched game over to Johnny Football's debut vs the Bengals.

I'm expecting the usual epic battle when San Francisco and Kaepernick come up to visit!

HAHA. Kaepernick better start now to avoid the delay of game penalties and blown time outs.

As I suspected - this Cardinals/Rams game is a total yawner.

Jesus christ. Who needs a starting QB? 3rd stringers win all the time, right?

It's not too late. But in reality, the Hawks will make it happen no matter if ARI wins tonight or not. What we really need is a GB opponent to step up.

Really shocking how bad the Cardinals are now. I would give them credit for having lost so many players, but that would be making excuses, right.

Yeah, put in your 2nd string and now 3rd string qb and see where you'd be. Exactly where the cards are now.

Yeah, I'm good with 2nd seed... and I'd be fine in 5th going to Atlanta too, lol! And if AZ can hang on, that means a Detroit or a Dallas might not get in, which would be preferable

Shaun Hill has the worst arm I have seen on an NFL QB in quite a while. How did the Rams win a game with him, let alone beating Denver? It was over when Arizona amassed an insurmountable 9 points.

The league cross-flexed this weeks' game back in late November. The announcement came at the same time as the Colts-Browns game being moved to FOX last week... the latter move being necessary since all 3 Thanksgiving Day games involved a pair of NFC teams.
