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.

    I’d like a third NBC game. National publicity could be a good thing.

    The only NBC prime time game that truly matters is the Super Bowl. Win ’em now prime time or not so we can get there to win it this time

    Hey Urban –

    Isn’t it true that FOX and CBS can pick one game each to protect from being “FLEXed?”

    What is the status of this flex? Is NBC going to move the Cards-Vikings to Sunday Night?
