A league source tells PFT that the December 7 game between the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens has been moved to the prime time slot on NBC.

The tentative schedule released by the NFL had the Patriots at the Seahawks in the prime time Week 14 slot, but thatís a relatively unattractive game, so the NFL is taking advantage of the flexible schedule to put a better game in prime time. Patriots-Seahawks will be played in the afternoon.

The league uses flexible scheduling on Sundays from Week 11 to Week 17 in an effort to ensure that the best games get the best time slots. The game at Baltimore will match two teams fighting for playoff spots.

The other big Week 14 game is Cowboys at Steelers, which will be on Fox at 4:15 p.m. Eastern.

Could the Monday night game between the Texans and Jags be changed?

Nope - MNF not subject to flexing.

I don't think so. Only the Sunday Night games on NBC can be changed.

CBS also protected the Steelers/Titans game in week 16. Can't say I blame them. Probably going to have a ton on the line if the Titans stumble again.
