Default Start Times Sunday

11 AM Houston at Indianapolis

2:25 PM Miami at New England

2:25 PM KC at Denver


I was very sure I checked on this very early this week seeing that Mia/NE was supposed to be a morning game, but apparently it has been switched. That really sucks, because it would have been possible that Denver could have been locked into their seed (with a Hou W and Mia W) before they had started their game.

That's fine. I don't want these starters to lose focus and have 3 weeks between meaningful games anyway.

Indy use to do this **** every week 17 and so many years they would lose their timing and rhythm and be 1 and done.

After the Jacksonville loss in '96 I am really against my team taking the last game or last 2 games off when they have the first round bye.

I know that it works both ways, the '09 Colts that took the last 2 weeks off and making the Super Bowl is an example, but when you're on this kind of streak I don't want to screw with this momentum.

I wouldn't have wanted the starters to take the whole game off, but I do think they could have played a half (and maybe 1 series in the 3rd quarter) without losing focus.

New England has a lot of 2-2:25 games throughout the year for some reason.

I don't really see what the uproar is about moving the NE game. It was an unfair competitive advantage to Denver.
It's better than moving the DEN game to 11am.

They can pull the starters once Miami is up by 42 at half.

I would agree but that damn San Francisco game shows how explosive the Pats offense is. Against Miami a 42 point half is possible.

Are both CBS and FOX doing double headers this Sunday?

Not really homey. The major population centers (east coast and upper midwest) are watching the pats/phins game.

The NFL has moved a few games around to keep teams from knowing their fate so they'll have to play their starters. A good move on the NFL's part.

Just win the effing game, worrying about what other teams did to improve your position or make the playoffs was a Shannahan thing and it's for losers.

Screw NE I dont care what happens in that game anyway. Colts and Broncos win we are the #1 seed and its over. Truly All I really want is the Broncos to play a mistake free game and people to stay healthy. A bye week and healthy is all I am asking for.
