Couldn't find anything in any other threads and nothing came up on a google search. We're past the deadline now I think.

Bummer...

The NFL announced Tuesday that the Dec.4 Sunday night game will be Lions @ Saints.

Wow. That does seem like a great option for the NFL, actually--Texans vs. Falcons.

Matt Ryan and Roddy White, with a good RB in Turner, facing the Texans who have Foster/Tate and AJ but without Schaub. Seems like it would draw some national attention, IMO.

Well, crap biscuits. :(

Ah, so I bet Suh won't get a suspension then.

Business before ethics, ftw. No way Goodell sends the Lions into the Superdome without Suh on the field.

That game is a Thursday game. Monday/Thursday games can't be flexed according to NFL rules.

I'll take that bet.

How will that game be more exciting? I wanted a night game for our Texans. This sucks.

At the time both teams had pretty good records and the Lions were/are a pretty exciting team to watch with bombs to CJ and their D-line abusing QB's (like tim tebow).

If we steamroll the Jags tomorrow network execs will probably wish they had picked us/ATL instead.

The Texans haven't been picked to be shown live on Sky over here yet, I'm pretty upset as they usually make for a really good game when they do get picked.

In fact Sky's coverage has really gone downhill in recent years, they used to show 2 1pm games, 2 4.15 games, the SNF game, the MNF game and Thursday/Saturday.

Now we're down to just 1 game at 1pm and 1 game at 4.15 with redzone on the red button.

And just as I write all of this i realise that todays game is being shown! Which is great news as the quality of the streams I've been getting has been piss poor this season ATDHE.net has been taken down which is massively annoying. I remember the other week having a discussion about Barwin/Reed moving around on the line and someone joking that Mario was back in the side. I hadn't been able to keep track of Reed/Barwin swapping sides because they are both white pixels but new Mario wasn't there because there wasn't a big black pixel coming off the edge :gun:

We have a night game. The week 16 game vs. the Colts is a Thursday nighter.

Happy?

I guess it's not surprising. The Lions are the feel good story of the season and the Saints are the NFL's baby. The Texans need to have some playoff runs before we get any love.

I'm happy to keep the bright lights off Leinart, for now. No big deal.

Honestly don't think it would matter much.

Me to, late games are a pain on work nights.

Same here. As I said in the other thread about this, I never expected it to happen in the first place.

Aaah. Just be happy the Texans aren't being forced into the AL West.
