    NFL flexes Dolphins-Chargers game to Sunday Night Football in Week 14

    https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...ll-in-week-14/

    After the Broncos signed Russell Wilson, the NFL scheduled them for five primetime games. They have played four of those, but with a 3-8 record and the worst scoring offense in the league, the Broncos won’t play the fifth.

    The NFL flexed out of the Week 14 game between the Chiefs and Broncos on Sunday Night Football.

    It also means we won't get flexed on that day, so one less night game.

    But, Week 15 against the Fish and week 18 against the Cheaters are still listed as time TBD. Given how tight the division is, those will almost definitely be night games.

    NBC wanted Bills vs Jets, not Chargers vs Dolphins, for Week 14 Sunday night flex


    https://www.ganggreennation.com/2022..._gl=1*179siur*

    When NBC was picking a game to flex into Sunday Night Football for Week 14, the contest they wanted was the Buffalo Bills vs New York Jets, according to a report from Connor Hughes of SNY TV. CBS blocked the move, though, keeping the game between Josh Allen and Mike White on Sunday afternoon.

    The second choice was the Miami Dolphins and the Los Angeles Chargers, which was flexed to the prime-time slot instead. That game will now replace the one originally scheduled for that night between the Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos with Russell Wilson.

    The AFC East is drawing national attention for the top-to-bottom quality we’ve seen in 2022. All four teams in the division are at least one game over .500 and three of the four teams are in the AFC Playoff Picture. That includes the Bills and Jets, who are currently in Wild Card position.

    That's weird. With all the hype behind the Bills, and with NY being the largest market in the country, it seems like that game would get better ratings than Fish/Chargers. But, I'm not complaining. I hate night games and we've had so many of them. I'd rather keep the Sunday afternoon game.

    There's no way The Bills Dolphins doesn't get flexed Week 15, is there?

    Can it also be flexed to Saturday night?

    I think I've only needed it for the Bills once, maybe twice. The Miami game was on locally. I can't remember if the Browns game was, but I think it was because the Browns are in the Ravens' div and they had the night game that day.
