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!
