Interesting article that I have not read all the way thru yet...

How the 2014 Schedule Was Made

A different Thanksgiving. Three games, six NFC teams, three rivalries: Chicago at Detroit, Philadelphia at Dallas and, in the nightcap from California, Seattle at San Francisco. We decided to make a statement on Thanksgiving, Katz said. It sounds corny, but its our most traditional national holiday. Lets play great traditional rivalries game on Thanksgiving. So we took Chicago-Detroit and made that our CBS game.

I would like to know why the Super Bowl rematch wasn't fitted into a prime time slot, and how did the Jets of all teams manage to get two Monday Night games at home?

Probably because CBS wanted it for themselves and gave up multiple games down the road in order to keep it. That's just a guess though.

It might have something to do with the game being such a blow out, do they want to go that route again? Other than the opener Seattle didn't get any evening games at home, 3 away. Packers have 5 evening games, 3 at home, 2 away. I would think the SB champs would get more preferential treatment.

MNF & SNF schedules look solid for a change. Jets will always get tons of games considering they are in a huge market. Nice to see teams like Titans & Dolphins only get 1 game.

All the talk and planning of the new schedule, well look what happened. I had this dream, more like a nightmare, that it was the last week of the NFL season and I had not been able to watch a single game all year. TO make matters worse, I turned on the TV and the game had just ended with the announcers talking about the RAMS being the Number 1 seed in the payoffs.

No, I do not do drugs or even drink anymore, but I might start if I missed football season.

Anyway, I don;t know which was worse, missing football or the rams winning

Last season, it seemed like the Cowpokes had the most TV games, Monday Sunday and One on THursday And they turned out to be another mediocre team, all hype and no substance.
Maybe the Pack will fare better, at least they are looking at postseason play.

I would consider ourselves lucky that my son;s favorite team comes in late December to play the Succaneers, which means it will not be blistering hot like in September

So far, my Lions have three nationally televised games.

We have the Monday Night Opener vs. the NY Football Giants, overseas for a game vs. Atlanta, and of course Thanksgiving.

Locally, we'll get the Cards vs. Lions here in AZ.

Later in the season; perfect for tailgating in the desert.

I went to the Bronco/Cardinal game in mid December 2010, just the week after head coach Josh McDaniels was shown the door. Love the stadium!

And the Cardinal fans certainly let it rip on me but all in good fun, I had a blast! Even though Denver got their butts handed to them!

Yaz is right. Temps in late season are in the mid 70's to low 80's. Can't beat it!

I'm not a Lions fan but I am really looking forward to waking up at 9:30 EST to catch a football game. That, followed by Seattle @ Carolina and Chicago @ New England, followed by Indianapolis @ Pittsburgh and Philadelphia @ Arizona, followed by Green Bay @ New Orleans. What a lineup! Great games all around.
