Will Panthers@Saints Week 14 get flexed to primetime?

I know it's a month away, but the current scheduled game is Falcons@Packers, which is clearly gonna get flexed out. No one wants to see a crappy Falcons team in the national spotlight. Here are the other contenders:

 

Colts@Bengals. This could be a critically important game for the AFC standings. It might even determine who gets a bye week. But the Bengals are kinda boring and the Colts have been on SNF twice now. It's also possible one of those teams lock up their division by then.

 

Seahawks@49ers. Cons: SNF had this exact matchup already in Week 2. Pros: This game could decide who wins the NFC West and gets a bye. Plus the media always plugs these teams as the real Super Bowl contenders. Would be tough to beat this.

 

Panthers@Saints. Drew Brees is a very marketable player and appeals to most audiences in a national spotlight. Cam Newton would also be making his first regular season Sunday Night Football debut . Assuming the Panthers haven't completely fallen apart by then, this game will be a deciding factor in who wins the NFC South. No doubt the #2 seed could be up for grabs as well.

 

IMO, two solid wins against the Niners & Pats and NBC should have no choice but to flex us to primetime!

If there is a tie for the division or 1 game difference between the conference lead, then I think we get flexed.

I dont want us flexed. Will be tough enough in the dome to handle the slight added pressure of prime time

Could be the same situation for SF and Seattle. Plus the media loves blowing both of those QBs

I want the home game against the Aints to get flexed. We deserve two home primetime games.

Probably not if we are 2 games ahead of them.

With the Panthers' gritty and hard fought win over the 49ers, NBC should have no choice but to put our team in primetime. Cam Newton is ready for the bright lights!

I looked into this weeks ago and the Packers losing Rodgers probably lets this happen

I think it will be flexed as long as we handle our business leading up to it. They'll lose to the seahawks so it will be for all the marbles
