Yes they can but the problem is created by the fact that by contract the players are guaranteed a day off between games and traveling for the team doesn't count as a day off.

 

This would have been their off day but now they may have to have it on Wed which would have already been scheduled for other team activities.

 

It's defiantly more than just a minor inconvenience.

 

by "guaranteed" do you mean optional?

 

hmmm....

None of it "matters". Just preparing everyone for the avalanche of these excuses we will hear in 6 days

those excuses will be sweet music to my ears.

No I actually mean required by the CBA.

 

For Sunday games that day is Monday and after wins you'll often hear a coach give them the Tuesday - "I'll see you on Wednesday!"

 

But for Monday night games that extra day is not there.  Its why the teams fly home the night of the game as opposed to staying in the city where they played and flying home in the morning.

 

 

 

Now admittedly I could be wrong on this but its the way Ive always understood the schedule for NFL teams during the week.

Saw a tweet from Schefter that said that said they wouldn't get back to the sewer until this afternoon.

It would have been a day off for them anyways, not sure that this affects their schedule at all.

You don't want to spend the night in Seattle after that TERRIBLE performance, you're crazy if you don't believe this doesn't affect their schedule. Many players come in for treatment the day after the game for injuries or soreness. They won't be back in New Orleans until 3CT, and have to practice tomorrow.

Less time for them to get rested up in their comfort zone.  I think all people who travel regularly know there is a huge difference to relaxing in a hotel room vs. relaxing in your own home.
