That game is locked.

DET/NO and ATL/HOU are the best bets. MAYBE CIN/PIT.

PIT plays the following Thursday, no way they get flexed. It's either our game or NO vs Det

is it weird that i hope they dont? the trend right now is we're the underrated and under the radar leader. i'd prefer us to quietly go about our business of going 1-0 at noon on sundays.

i couldnt care less about the spotlight, i'd prefer to see us in the confetti.

I hope not. My husband has to fly out to Ohio that night and it is a school night so late for my son to be up.

Which probably means this will be the game flexed. Sigh

Have no idea 'bout the Texans chances of getting "flexed", but whatever they were they probably went up with the former USC Heisman-winner
being named their new signal-caller.

I don't like late games, even afternoon names I don't like. I want all games to start at noon Sunday. Forget those silly night games, especially on work nights.

The Texans ain't getting on Sunday Night Football, unless they make noise
in the playoffs. NBC simply does not respect this team, no matter how
good they FINALLY are looking in 2011.

So the never-done-anything in the regular season, let alone playoffs Detroit Lions get a game?

You could have used better reasoning than that.

in regards to media lovefests, New Orleans>Atlanta, Detroit>Houston, Detroit>Atlanta... Drew Brees vs. Stafford> Matt Ryan vs. Leinart... At the time the decision has to be made, combined record of 14-6 record>combined record of 13-7..

But to challenge DmC's point better, Monday Night Football>Sunday Night Football, and The Texans were in two of those last year...

But I believe the Texans could have made some noise in the playoffs last year and they still wouldn't have gotten flexed in for next week's game...

The Lions have a history of SOME success in the NFL, even if
it goes back more than 50 years. Hell, they're on every Thanksgiving.
More people root for the Lions, than for the Texans, because they've
at LEAST put themselves on the NFL map.

If the Texans do their job, they'll be on that map soon enough.

NBC's Sunday Night Football has surpassed MNF as the "standard" for
NFL Primetime games, since MNF left ABC. MNF took a big hit by
not being on FREE TV anymore. In 2011 Sunday Night Football > Monday Night Football.
You haven't seen the Broncos on Sunday Night Football, right?

Sunday Night Football is where the teams with the biggest "cache" get
shine. The Texans ain't there yet, so don't be surprised they were
snubbed by NBC.

MNF changed the window dressing, but it is still under the Disney/ABC umbrella

Whew... I am glad the Texans didn't get it..As for the "respect" part, so what. 12:00 games are the best anyway... it's no better/worse than a prime time game.

I almost said that, but my point is MNF on ESPN ain't the same as it was
on ABC when it comes to prestige.

Ok professor. ESPN has more programming for the NFL in a year than ABC ever had in its run on the network.

I was hoping they would have flexed our game but oh well. I do agree that SNF on NBC is the marquee game each week over MNF.
