And I've heard news that the NFL might flex the Rams/Eagles game in two weeks into Sunday Night Football. The Eagles play the Seahawks on Sunday Night Football this weekend and they're scheduled to play the Rams at 4:30 the following weekend. The game scheduled for SNF in two weeks on December 10th is the Steelers/Ravens. But the ratings for the Eagles/Cowboys game last week on Sunday Night Football were so good that the NFL wants to flex the Steelers/Ravens to earlier that afternoon and flex the Eagles/Rams game to Sunday Night Football instead. Sorry, Sam. And tt's not just because the ratings the Eagles got last week were great, it's also because this is gonna be a game between two division leaders with quarterbacks who were both the first and second round draft picks from the class of 2016 - Rams QB Jared Goff and Eagles QB Carson Wentz. Dak Prescott of the Cowboys was the fourth round pick that year. I'm really sorry if my team's game bumps your team's game back, Sam.

And the Eagles also play the Raiders on the season finale of Monday Night Football on Christmas night. Wow, so many prime time games this year! If they do flex the Eagles/Rams game, that'll make it six prime time games counting the Thursday Night game against the Panthers and the Monday Night game against the Redskins.
Exactly That's fine, the time of the games doesn't really bother me since it makes it easier for me to watch down here haha, What do you think the Eagles biggest game will be on their run home?

Okay, just making sure. I didn't mean for the Eagles to steal the Steelers' thunder. But let's face it, the Ravens aren't making the playoffs this year and the Steelers will probably blow them out, so it's understandable that the NFL would think the Rams/Eagles game will be the better one for SNF.

The biggest game will probably be the Rams/Eagles game in two weeks. The Seahawks game this weekend will also be important, but they're dealing with a lot of injuries on defense, and their offensive line isn't that good. They still have one of the best quarterbacks in the league with Russell Wilson, but the Seahawks look a bit weaker now. The Falcons just knocked them out of the #6 spot in the wildcard race, and if the Redskins can beat the Seahawks, then the Eagles should be able to. The Seahawks are second in the NFC West behind Jared Goff and the Rams, who lead the NFC West and just beat the Saints. That's probably gonna be the toughest game of the year for the Eagles. After that it gets easy. They play the Giants(who they should destroy), the Raiders, and finally the Cowboys, who they just beat. But by then they should clinch the division, so they may just rest all their starters and give that last game to the Cowboys as they prepare for the playoffs.

Hi, Mark! I'm glad you're feeling better.


Well, it wouldn't be a hockey game without a fight, Mark. But NFL games are starting to look like hockey games lately with all the fights. The Bengals’ A.J. Green and the Jaguars’ Jalen Ramsey in week 9, and yesterday between the Raiders' Michael Crabtree and the Broncos' Aqib Talib.

Awesome! But they're still 8th in the division, so it's gonna be a while before we see if they can climb back up from that.

Well, that's the great thing about hockey, they have 7 or 8 months to get into the playoffs.

Yeah, that fight was hilarious. The one guy ripped the other guy's chain off. They can wear those while their on the field?


Oh, and do you want to take the post count tonight, Mark?

Thanks for being so understanding, Sam. It's not confirmed yet, but the NFL has until tomorrow to decide if they're gonna flex the Eagles/Rams game into the Sunday Night Football slot.

Yeah, and the one guy lost his helmet during the fight and was still punching. That's not really smart. And with everything else the NFL is going through in terms of how the public views them, this really isn't good for them.

Okay, I'm gonna post a bit more and I'll let you know.

Yeah, for the kneeling during the anthem and stuff. But at least the end zone celebrations are fun now that they're no longer penalizing them.

You can take the post count now, Mark.
