Default Broncos-Vikings Flexed...

...to Fox (sorry, that was mean).

I thought this was interesting, though. It's the first time it's ever happened.

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/72...ta-vikings-fox

A change in broadcast networks for the Denver Broncos-Minnesota Vikings game in Week 13 revealed changes in the way the NFL will broadcast its games.

The NFL on Monday announced that the Detroit Lions-New Orleans Saints game was flexed to the Sunday night spot on NBC. The Broncos-Vikings game, which originally was on CBS, was switched to Fox at 1 p.m. ET. Also, the Indianapolis Colts-New England Patriots game, which was the scheduled Sunday night game on Dec. 4, reverts to 1 p.m. on CBS and the Baltimore Ravens-Cleveland Browns game was moved to 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS.

Weird that a home game for an NFC team was going to be on CBS in the first place. What with three prime time games a week now, though, I guess balanced scheduling gets a little wonky.

The away team always determines who broadcasts.

Here's a question for you, though.

What are the chances any of our remaining games actually do get flexed?

It seems, on the surface, a ridiculous idea. But, we have two games remaining against what I would call high-profile teams.

The Bears game was not likely to be flexed, anyway (Raiders-Packers or Giants-Cowboys). But Cutler coming back to Denver and Tebow playing are two great story lines. Now, Cutler will be coming back to Denver to stand on the sidelines, if they even let him do that. So, that week seems out.

The next week is the Patriots. I would argue that that one has a decent chance, if we keep winning. Other games that weekend are Lions-Raiders, Jets-Eagles, and Ravens-Chargers. Jets-Eagles seems like a slam dunk, if they both stay in the playoff hunt. But both have gotten lots of exposure this year, already. I could see NBC wanting to get the Tebow circus one time, assuming the Broncos are still in the playoff hunt, at that point.

The Pats will probably have that division sown up by then though. Giants Cowboys may be protected by FOX? But with no Jay I'd be surprised.

Fox boardcasts suck. It's like they somehow make the game boring.

I agree. Every time there's a challenge, they bring in whats his face from the "Fox Command Center" to talk about if he thinks it's a fumble or not. Stupid.

Two things I don't like about this.

CBS is the HOME station for the Broncos and AFC teams and this is going to confuse the Russians, and other people too dumb to check listings.

Second they didn't just change the network, they also changed the Time. It was scheduled at 2PM Denver time,and has been moved to 11AM, making it another Eastern swing to an early game in a dome on turf.

Hopefully we can keep the mojo going in the Early time slot this year, that Fox seems to have found. Maybe the going out 2 days early thing is paying dividends.

Something like, " **** you Pastor! I got a game to watch of the real Messiah! Tell the Jews he is already here!"
Well, I hope it isnt that dickish or you will be seeing hell in the afterlife.

Just gonna sit in the back row, start b****ing to the old lady that I'm feeling sick Saturday afternoon, start coughing uncontrollably once service starts, and sneak out at approximately 10:45, midway through the sermon. Then maybe I can catch the opening kickoff.

Hope these ***** realize what they're putting me through by doing this.

I actually think Fox has smoother HD...

But moving the game to 11am?...shenanigans.
