Last year, the NFL started this flex scheduling thing which allows them to change the times of game over the last several weeks of the season. It mainly affects the games that are to be nationally televised by NBC on Sunday Nights (but also applies to the late afternoon games) so they can show a game with more meaning.
While there are rules that the NFL follows for selecting these games, they do Week 17 a bit different. No games are off limits aside from picking teams that have reached televised limits. They also only have to give six days advance warning about the change instead of the normal 12 days.
That means the NFL will place the game with the most riding on it as their season finale on NBC.
So which games look like they could be a possibility?
