Packers-Giants in Week 11 flexed out of prime time

The Packers-Giants game in Week 11 on Sunday, Nov. 17, at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey has been flexed out of NBC’s prime-time Sunday Night Football slot and is moving to a 3:25 p.m. CT kickoff on FOX.

The prime-time game on NBC will be Chiefs-Broncos on that date instead. Also, the Chargers-Dolphins game that day is moving from a noon kickoff to 3:05 p.m. CT on CBS.

The Packers have one other prime-time game scheduled for this season, at home vs. Atlanta in Week 14 (Sunday, Dec. 8).

Week 11 is when flex scheduling begins each year, with the Sunday night game subject to change through the end of the regular season.

This marks the first time since the NFL implemented flex scheduling in 2006 that the Packers have been flexed out of the prime-time game. The Packers have been flexed from an afternoon game into the prime-time slot before.

    I think that, as things stand now, the reason the Packers were flexed out on this date has more to do with the bad season the New York Giants are having than what the Packers are or are not doing.

    We’ll just get the win earlier in the day now!

    One more reason to be glad the Giants suck this year. Now I don’t have to wait until Sunday night for my game.

    Colts v Bengals or Seahawks v Niners is probably going to get flexed into our other primetime spot too (More likely the Bengals and Colts since the Niner and Seahawks already were on SNF this year)

    Ugh. Another Broncos game? Do they have to be on tv every week? So sick of Manning id rather watch jax play Tampa.

    Great I hate Sunday night games. I think 4pm est games are more national.

    It would be hi-larious if the Bronco/Chiefs was a blow-out.

    thanks to the G-Men sucking so bad we all get punished by not being able to see the Pack play in a primetime game.

    Seeing as how I’m driving there for Binghamton I’m happy about this change, means I don’t have a long late night drive home.GO PACK GO.

    The only problem is that us non-Wisconsin Packer fans cannot watch the game at home!!

    At this rate, they’ll also pull the plug on the Sunday night game vs. Atlanta on December 8th and replace it with Seattle at San Francisco.

  13. By Rick S. on Nov 1, 2013 | Reply

    Green Bay at Dallas might bump Cincinnati at Pittsburgh out of the night spot on December 15th.

    There goes my shot at watching.

    NBC is a bunch of old geezers anyway. I’ve never heard a more unenthusiastic professional football game in my life (last week).

    Soooo many old people on NBC, I actually thought I was getting old and crusty just watching it.

    Good riddance!

    Can’t wait to see Eddie Lacy punch it down their throats.

    It would seem so easy to pick these prime time, national games, right? “Take these 3 playoff teams (Pack, Vikes, Falcons) and one that just missed by one game (NYG), and match them against each other.” Who knew 3 of 4 would be dogs this year? Anyone who endured even half of the MIN vs. NYG MNF snooze-fest would be glad to not see much of them anymore. Again, we can thank our lucky stars that we have leadership in place that has a plan for sustained success and executes it well, so our team is not the reason for being flexed out (and the misery that their fans are feeling).

    To Mike from Chicago:

    New York (Manhattan) Packer fans are fortunate we can get

    the game as Pack faces Giants.

    For me as a European Packers fan, this is excellent news. Means I’ll be able to watch the game and still get in a couple of hours of shut eye before getting up and heading to work.

    I’m fortunate to have directv which is a must for us
    out-of-state Packer fans.

    As far as the confidence I sense in playing the Gmen
    be careful what you wish for. NY/NJ has a bye this
    week and a home game vs OAK on Nov. 10 – they could
    very well be playing the Packers at home healthy
    and on a 3-game winning streak. Realizing that they
    are having a bad year they could possibly be turning
    a corner – Coughlin will have them ready and Eli
    will be ready. I wouldn’t take them lightly.

    Moving to an afternoon game for out of state fans may pre-empt us from watching our beloved Packers from our own living rooms. The Sunday night game is a guarantee for us without the NFL ticket. Though we can head to a plethora of sports bars to watch our team amongst other GB fans(which is fun), I still prefer the confines of my own cave. Given my propensity for yelling at the TV (as if someone could actually hear me) I believe those GB fans and opposing fans at the local pub would prefer I stay at home. Living in Montana one must get accustomed to being pre-empted for Denver or Seattle.

    Roll on green roll on

    I agree Montana. Living in AZ I almost always get stuck with the Card games. There’s a great Packers bar close by but also prefer my own place to yell (if needed).
    GO PACK!

    Well go pack for Monday night game even though I am Australian and it is already Monday so I guess go pack for Tuesday still hate the bears and that is one thing we all have in common as packers fans.

    Living in Oregon (the state not the suburb of Madison) we get all the Seahawks, Niners, and Raiders I can stomach. I really doubt that Fox will show the Pack and the giants out here.

    REGARDING THANKSGIVING GAME. SINCE DETROIT LIKES TO PLAY SO MUCH ON THANSGIVING WHY NOT PUT THEM AS WELL AS THE COWBOYS ON THE ROAD EVERY OTHER YEAR. THAT HAS BEEN A HUGE ADVANTAGE FOR THE LIONS FOR YEARS.

    The one concern that I had with the pack was we really didn’t have a backup quarterback. I look at our division and by far we have the best starter but backups we are the weakest. It may cost us the playoffs. I hope we resign Matt Flynn and keep him this time. The way the season is going you need a solid backup qb to stay afloat in the NFL. I do believe that the pack was set for a run with all of our guys coming back but 12 being out is the one area we don’t have the guns to keep up in our division. We have to win giant’s game and then beat the Vikings. If we don’t with Carolina, Bears could leave us being the odd team out.

    Go Packers.

    What are the chances the December 8th Falcons game gets moved? Can they move them two time slots or just one?

  31. By PackrBackr on Nov 12, 2013 | Reply

    Excuse you JoAnn…the Packers have a winning record and a huge fan base as do the Giants. JoAnn is most likely a fan of some team like the Patriots and she’s probably from Iowa or Arkansas.
    Miami and Tampa Bay on Monday night, yuck! There are match ups that suck all year long.
    What blows is when people make plans a month in advance to travel to a game.
