This one hurts. If you have tickets to the Eagles/Seahawks Week 12 game on Sunday, November 24, get ready to change your plans. While the Eagles are accustomed to getting flexed into a primetime game due to the team’s success, today they learned what the NFL’s TV partners giveth, they taketh away:

It’s a bummer, but it’s not entirely surprising. Looking at the schedule, the Eagles would drop to 5-5 with a loss to the New England Patriots, while the 8-2 Seahawks will be coming off their bye week. NBC opted to flex into the Green Bay Packers v. San Francisco 49ers game instead. Coming off their first loss of the season on Monday night, the Niners should enter Week 12 at 9-1, while the Packers will be coming off their bye week at 8-2.
Here’s some good news: After suffering through a week of Dick Stockton and some subpar announcing crews on Fox, the Eagles/Patriots game is getting arguably the best team in the business:

The flex decision is a bummer, but I for one look forward to hearing the top crew call a rematch of Super Bowl LII.
