Week 13: seriously, we're stuck with DAL-PHI

Which is flat out ridiculous, given that TB-Denver, Seattle-Chicago, and GB-Minnesota all have much more playoff implications. Hell, give me Baltimore-Pittsburgh part 2 over that game.

They're getting kind of lazy with this. No moves at all for Weeks 14-15. The real litmus test of their laziness will be Week 16 - SD-NYJ, with dumpster fire supremacy in the AFC at stake.

Week 14 really doesn't have any games that stand out other than maybe Saints-Giants (which I would expect Fox to have protected). And for Week 15, there would be no need to flex out the 49ers-Patriots SNF game in a potential Super Bowl matchup. If there were a way to flex the Broncos-Ravens game to the 4:15 timeslot, that would be cool.

Week 16 SNF: SD-NYJ out, SF-SEA is in.

Also NYG-BAL is now a late game.

San Fran @ Seattle could be for the NFC West title...nice flex.

I bet Fox, NBC, and the NFL are having some fun right now fighting about DAL-WAS.

The only other game I can see getting SNF is GB-MIN since if SEA wins tonight, it would be a win and in for the Vikings and a win and 1st round bye situation for the Packers, plus the outside shot of AD breaking the rushing record (he needs 208).

Schefter sez: DAL-WAS will be SNF. GB-MIN and MIA-NE are now late games.

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
