Eagles-Bears on December 22 to Be Flexed to Sunday Night Football

Voila_Capture792Did somebody say Phlex?*

CBS Philly is reporting that the Eagles-Bears game on December 22 has been flexed to NBC at 8 p.m.:

The Eagles vs. Bears game at Lincoln Financial Field to 8pm is “all but done,” according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com is reporting the same thing. CHRISTMAS WEEKEND NIGHTTIME FOOTBALL. HOT.

[UPDATE: Done deal.]

This bumps Patriots-Ravens, which is a BFD (big fucking deal).

To which I say, Eliot, in my best Saul Berenson voice: Flex ’em. Flex ’em all.

*He was so much better than this new motherfucker.

  1. There are no Monday Night, Thursday Night, or Sunday Night games the final week of the season so whoever thought eagles-cowboys would be flexed is an idiot.

    1. Ummm there’s always a Sunday night game the final week, Cowboys blew it last year in prime time to the Redskins.

  2. Q: Is it ever less than great when someone calling someone else an idiot gets made to look like the real idiot?
    A: Nope.

  3. I think NBC didn’t want to take the chance that should the Cowboys lose next week it could make the final game meaningless. I am also aware that no game can be protected in the final week meaning that NBC has their choice of any Fox or CBS game. I wonder if they could show the Eagles on consecutive weeks because it is quite possible that the Eagles-Cowboys game might be the only game that matters in the final week.
