    I believe the max is 6, which is why I said 5-6.

    If you consider that there are 32 games = 64 teams + Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the NFL Network games it's probably about 70-75.

    Since there are some teams, like Cleveland, that probably won't even get one, that's not that outrageous at all.

      Well, I don't consider NFL Network games to be National games. Notice that I said MNF/Sunday Nighters only. If you include NFL Network games, that is very reasonable.

        Team-by-team 2007 opponents, for those interested.

        It doesn't surprise me the schedule-makers would make sure the Falcons be the home team in the primetime games announced thus far (Colts and Texans). It's a bit coddling, but makes sense if you're trying to make the games as enjoyable to watch as possible.

        My guesses for the Colts:

        SNF, New Orleans Saints @ Indianapolis Colts [announced as the Thursday season opener]
        MNF, Indianapolis Colts @ Baltimore Ravens
        SNF, New England Patriots @ Indianapolis Colts (probably Nov. 4th or 11th)
        TNF (NFLN), Indianapolis Colts @ Atlanta Falcons [announced for Thanksgiving]
        SNF, Indianapolis Colts @ San Diego Chargers

        I believe 5 primetime games is the limit, or it may be 6 depending on how the NFLN game is worked in (I'll revisit it), but the Colts had 4 primetime games last year (Wk 1 SNF - IND @ NYG; Wk 9 SNF - IND @ NE; Wk 12 SNF - PHI @ IND; and Wk 15 MNF - CIN @ IND). I also place the Baltimore game between Weeks 1 and 9/10 because I think the schedule-makers will show some love to the Colts and not make them travel to Baltimore in December, whereas a primetime game in San Diego (hmm, I wonder how much tickets will cost?) is unlikely to have that same problem.

          Our schedule is way easier than last year, only other game I see with real primetime potential is vs. the Patriots. Any other game would just be random, vs. the Titans might be a reach but the media sure loves their VY.

            Don't forget the Bengals open MNF against the Ravens, in the 1st game of the Week 1 double-header.

            Also, that's Bears @ Eagles, Bears @ Washington, Bears @ Seahawks, and Bears @ Chargers, not the other way around.

              It'd be a crime if Chiefs @ Jets didnt at LEAST get a SNF thing considering both teams made the playoffs and considering who coaches the Chiefs.

                For those wondering:

                The Miami Dolphins will "host" the New York Football Giants in London's Wembley Stadium on October 28th, Week 8 of the regular season. The game will be broadcasted on FOX at 1 PM ET (6 PM local time).

                Shame the game couldn't be in primetime, but the time difference necessitates an earlier broadcast on our shores.

                  I never indicated a home team, I just listed both teams. I'm too lazy and don't care enough to look it up.

                    Well, now you know. And knowing is half the battle.

                    An excellent opportunity for Mangenie-in-a-bottle to stuff J!-E!-T!-S!-JETS!-JETS!-JETS! down Herm's conservative throat. Or for Larry Johnson to run rough-shot over yet another team in the league. I'd watch it. ;)

                        Anyone that gives the Titans a primetime game is banking on the fact that the Titans won't regress this year, which is suspect.

                        But I agree, I think Vick vs. Young is instant primetime.

                          Keep in mind that Drew Brees somehow beat Peyton Manning for last year's All-Pro QB spot. He must pay come September 6th.



                          PS. I can't believe Manning didn't earn All-Pro or garner more than 2 MVP votes (Brees had 4 I believe). He had the best season of his career last year - yes, better than the record-breaking 2004 season of 49 touchdowns, if you look at what he had to do. Ugh, curse you fickle voters.

                            Cowboys will have a prime-time game every other week, mark that down. I actually don't like that because whenever the Cowboys lose it is a huge story. Oh well. I think the Cowboys-Bears will definitly be a MNF game. Cowboys-Patriots will be a prime-time game as well.

                              Titans vs Atlanta is gonna be suspect. I think ATL is gonna be arond 500, but the Titans are gonna regress majorly imo....


                              although it would be a somewhat entertaining game

                                I would love to see the Dallas Cowboys @ the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football.

                                Sort of a 15-year anniversary of the 1992 season's Super Bowl XXVII. The vitirol of the Buffalo crowd against the hated Cowboys. The fact that the Bills traded their 2005 1st round pick to the 'boys for their 2004 1st round pick, which they then used to draft current franchise quarterback JP Losman. Losman versus Tony Romo in a battle of promising young quarterbacks. Lee Evans versus Terry Glenn. Wade Phillips, former head coach of the Buffalo Bills who lost the Music City Miracle playoff game and is now the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Players of the 4-time AFC Championship Bills teams, including newly elected Hall of Fame member Thurman Thomas, on the sidelines.

                                Please make it happen, schedule-makers.
