    Week 16 Panther-Giants Game Flexed to Primetime

    Not Steelers related, but for any football fan this could be must see game, as they will be fighting for the top seed in the NFC probably. And after the way the Panthers have been playing (and running the ball :P ...drool), this should be a great matchup.

    PANTHERS-GIANTS IN PRIME TIME WEEK 16
    Posted by Michael David Smith on December 9, 2008, 12:55 p.m. EST
    The December 21 game between the Panthers and Giants is likely to determine who will have home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. And now all of America will be able to see it.

    The NFL has announced that it has used the flexible schedule to move Panthers-Giants to the NBC prime time time slot in Week 16.

    For the Giants, this means they’ll play on Sunday Night Football two weeks in a row, as they’re also on NBC this Sunday in Dallas.

    We won’t know until after Week 16 what the Week 17 prime time game will be, but it won’t be Giants-Vikings. The Panthers game will be the Giants’ fourth on NBC, which is the most any team can get.

    I read somewhere (likely profootballtalk.com) that the Steelers-Titans were going to be moved into this slot, but that CBS exercised an option to block the move.

    Yeah, each network gets to put one (or two, can't remember) game on a "cannot flex" list. Obviously CBS would never let that game go...big ratings from us Steelers fans...(not so much from the 25 Titans fans that own tvs )
