If Panthers win tomorrow, can Panthers-Giants be moved to Monday night if Home Field Advantage is in play? Isn't there a clause in ESPN contract where at the end of the season they can pick a good game for Monday night and have 2 games broadcasted (one regional and one national)?

I don't know if it's NBC or ESPN who have that in their broadcast contract. Not really sure how it works

The Panthers vs Giants game has already been moved to MNF, where have you been?

Monday Night games are set in stone but Sunday games are flexed but since the Giants have already clinched their division and will likely be in playoff mode, our game with them will be at the alotted time.

Listen to Jangler. Jangler is wise.

Games can ONLY be flexed to Sunday night. MNF games are set in stone.

Additionally, if the game is flexed to Sunday night, we will know by Tuesday or Wednesday of this week. They have to make the decision 12 days ahead of the game to give teams and fans time to adjust for the schedule change.

I would say that if the Panthers win tomorrow night, it's nearly automatic to flex the game to Sunday night. (The scheduled game is SD at Tampa. The Chargers are hardly worth a primetime game at this point.)

I doubt they will flex Us vs the Giants. They are already playing next week on Sunday.

Thanks. It will be a huge game if we manage to win tomorrow.

I believe that's what's going to happen

True. I wonder if the networks can put enough pressure on the NFL to change that. It would mean a big logistical night mare for the home team, but it's not impossible if given 2 weeks notice. They change Sunday night and get the word out to the ticket holders. Should be able to do the same for a 24 hour change. (unless of course I've booked a flight and hotel reservations. :))

I'm in favor of it because we all know what kind of turkeys they have had for Monday night this season.

They most definitely will not be in playoff mode if homefield advantage is on the line. And it will be on the line if we win tomorrow.:D

The Giants still want homefield and we could easily take it from them so, they won't be resting anyone IMO.

I believe two years ago the Patriots played two Sunday night games in a row.

I just went and looked the scheldule.

These are the only real choices
Atl v Min
Ari v NE
Car v NYG
Pitt v Tenn
Phil v Wash
or leave SD v TB in place
