Tennessee kickoff moves later

Posted by Darren Urban on November 17, 2009 – 9:32 am

The NFL announced Tuesday the kickoff for the Cardinals game at Tennessee Nov. 29 has been moved into the late TV slot, meaning instead of an 11 a.m. kickoff in Arizona, it will be at 2:15 p.m. Arizona time (3:15 p.m. Tennessee time). That game joins Chicago at Minnesota as the only late games on the schedule that week, since three games will be played on Thanksgiving Thursday: Green Bay at Detroit, Oakland at Dallas, Giants at Denver. The Sunday night game that week remains Pittsburgh at Baltimore.

Could NBC flex the Cards?

Posted by Darren Urban on October 29, 2009 – 5:44 pm

Here’s one benefit of the Cards’ big win on “Sunday Night Football” in New York: It could earn them another NBC appearance.

Right now, NBC doesn’t have the Vikings on their schedule and are missing out on the Brett Favre gravy train (however irritating that may sound to some). The Vikings come to University of Phoenix Stadium Dec. 6 in what could be a perfect opportunity to flex out of the current Patriots-Dolphins game that night (NBC can’t start flexing games until the week of Nov. 22). Now, the Dolphins could get hot and that AFC game could still be attractive. Or the Vikings — or Cards — could hit a bump and not look as good by then. But it is possible. Fox and CBS can “protect” games from being flexed, but those week-by-week choices have already been made and Fox didn’t touch Cardinals-Vikings.
