It’s that special time of the year when the NFL starts to throw out their newest invention – flex scheduling. The league started flex scheduling a few years back to avoid that problem of having a 2-9 vs 1-10 team on prime time, and so far it’s been pretty successful. With that said, the league has decided on its week 14 Sunday night game, making a switch.
At first, the game was set to be the Pats at Seahawks, but with the Hawks being awful this year, that game has been thrown out the window, and the league will instead go with the Redskins vs Ravens. Both the Skins and Ravens are in the playoff race, making it a pretty appealing game.
The other games on that slate that could have been up for discussion include: Atlanta at New Orleans, Miami at Buffalo (even though that game is in Toronto), and the Cowboys at Steelers.
