Default Week 13: Possible SNF flex game for Texans

Week 13 SNF game is supposed to be Pats-Colts. With the Colts 'lucking' like they couldnt beat a college team this nvm a team like the Pats, not to mention their 62-7 pounding on SNF afew weeks ago, I think its quite likely that game is going to get flexed.

Jets @ Redskins (CBS) and Packers @ Giants (FOX) have both been protected by their respective networks so a the replacement game can't be either of those

That leaves only two real possibilities for flexed games (i.e. games between two winning teams):

Detroit (6-2) @ New Orleans (6-3)

OR

Falcons (5-3) @ Texans (6-3)

just something to possibly look forward to

I doubt the NY Giants vs Cowboys game will be flexed, but maybe there's a possibility if the Cowboys aren't in the running for anything? We play the Bengals that week (week 14).

Playoff implications. Lions will probably be fighting for a WC spot, and conference record may come into play.

I will bet on this too. THE bottom line is ratings, which equals $$$$$. Detroit's success this season is a national headline and New Orleans is a big national team now. Drew Brees is a national name.

I would LOVE the Texans to be on national TV, but if I was in the board room I would bank on Detroit/New Orleans bringing in more ratings. The only reason to choose the AFC game over the NFC game is the fact that the Texans do not have a national game besides that lame Thursday nighter.

Counting the regular primetime games (Sunday and Monday night), there are only THREE scheduled AFC vs. NFC games: DAL @ NYJ, IND @ NO, and PIT @ SF. There's a reason they do not put many AFC/NFC games in primetime.

You would think an AFC/NFC match up would make more sense because it would bring in viewers from both sides!?

It certainly would be cool to get the Sunday night game, but I think the Lions/Saints is more compelling for the national audience.

Less playoff implications. While overall W/L record is important for playoff seeding, the Saints and the Lions could be competing for a WC slot against each other (Lions are almost certain to be 2nd in the NFCN). Isn't there an AFCN match-up too? Like Cincy/Pitt?

Well if detroit has fallen apart by week 13, which could happen, they could put us in. But I would probably go with Detroit @ New Orleans as well. Unless if there is some sort of rule saying a team can only have x amount of prime time appearences. I doubt thats the case though.

That makes sense. While it would be nice to see us on a national stage during the season, we'll get plenty of exposure during the playoffs so I'm not too down about it.

...and now I am hoping the Lions drop some games.

But according to these rules then it won't be us.

Will probably be the Packers vs Giants.
