I hope it gets flexed to Sunday night. CBS and FOX can't protect games for Week 17.
It's seeming like that isn't it.... I forgot that CBS & Fox can't protect games that week.
It's gonna be colder than hell probably on January 2, so having it at night with no sun warmth would make it even colder.
The other potentially big games that final week are:
Oakland @ KC
SD @ Denver
The AFC West will be wide open probably, but isn't nearly as big as Chi-GB.
Pitt @ Cleveland... remember Cleveland has beaten NE and NO.
TB @ NO.... NYG @ Wash.... I can't believe we lost to Wash, whom the Vikings just beat.
TB might be out of it by then, but they could be contending for a wildcard spot and possibly beat out the loser of our Bears-Packers game.
Still, our rivalry game seems to be BY FAR the best game of week 17.
