Expect the NFL to reschedule the time slots for Giants-Jets or Eagles-Cowboys

As of right now, the Jets host the Giants next Saturday in NJ at 1:00 EST.

The Cowboys host the Eagles at 4:15 EST.

If the Giants beat the Jets at 1, the Cowboys-Eagles game is 100% meaningless to both teams.  First of all, the Eagles would be eliminated from playoff contention right then and there, but also, a Giants win will put them at 8-7, equaling the Cowboys’ win total.  Regardless of whether the Cowboys beat the Eagles, they would still need to beat the Giants Week 17 to win the division, as a Giants win over Dallas would give the Giants a 2-0 head-to-head advantage over Dallas, and thus the first tiebreaker.  I highly doubt FOX wants to televise a game in which the Cowboys sit Tony Romo, DeMarcus Ware, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, and Jason Witten.

If you’re a fan of the Cowboys, Eagles, or Giants, you might want to start figuring your TV situation, and set up two TVs side-by-side for Christmas Eve.  It could be a pretty awesome/nerve-wracking 3 hours of football.

UPDATE: Whoops.  According to the506.com, no games at all can be flexed on Christmas weekend.  Not from 1:00 to the NBC slot, not from 1 to 4, not from 4 to 1.  No changes can be made at all, as the NFL apparently didn’t want to mess with fans’ holiday plans.  So if the Giants win, you may as well enjoy some time with your family, because Cowboys-Eagles will be completely meaningless.

    The Giants and Jets play on Saturday?

    1. The NFL moved almost all the games to Saturday this year because Sunday is Christmas.

  18. Matt says:

    Would both games be on Fox, being as the Jets are technically the home team in that game? This would suck if they are on at the same time.

      1. Matt says:

        I do hope they finagle some way to get both games of TV or else I’m heading up to Allentown to invade my friends house where he gets both NY and Philly CBS Fox etc.

    Holy ishfambizzledizzle…..I would not like that one bit…:(

    1. Yeah, the scheduling as is would be great for the Cowboys. But as we know in the NFL, $$$ is going to win every single time.

      1. Smitty2K3 says:

        What are you suggesting? You think the NFL would put both games at the same time slot? Either 1:00 or 4:15. I think that makes the most sense. Force all 4 of these teams to play all out no matter what happens.

      2. DerfDiggy says:

        *sigh* I wish you eagle turds would just die already. Like a bad horror movie, they just keep coming…no matter how many times you shoot em. Here’s to hoping the Boys can finally put the stake in your heart. I hate you with every fiber of my being…
        In fact I was in Philly yesterday, at Dave and Busters….as I grumbled after every cheer and clap, I somehow found solace that these miserable ratbirds are once again raising expectations late in the season. That glimmer of hope I saw on Mr. “I only have 250 tickets, and my daughter wants the big Smurf doll that costs 48000 tickets” Face will undoubtedly turn to anger and disappointment, hopefully at the hands of the Cowboys next week.

        That is my Christmas wish…..well that and hopefully that little girl gets something really good for Christmas, because the Eraser and pack of skittles she settled for was kind’ve heartbreaking.

        1. Emile says:

          You are a sad man. My christmas wish is that you find a way to be happy without the misery of others. Many fans think that way, but for you to go through the whole effort of typing that entire thing out is beyond words

          1. DerfDiggy says:

            Well Emile…I’ve lived a pretty good life so far….at some point we all need to realize it’s a sport and entertainment we’re watching. If I cannot find joy in the defeat of a hated division rival at the hands of my favorite team, then why the hell do I follow? Calm down sir…it was a joke. I wish no harm or ill will on anyone, and if that gentleman’s best days(or misery in your words) are tied to a football team..then….well I don’t have too much to say.

            How much “misery” can one have by watching a sport, I ask?

            It’s not that serious…lol

            1. Jason-E says:

              Emile,

              What are you talking about? It’s football. I’m glad a Dallas fan is rooting for my misery, because I’m sure as hell hoping the Eagles make his Christmas weekend sucks. That’s football. If you don’t hate your division rivals and their fans, then you’re missing out on one of the greatest things about football.

              Merry Christmas derf. I hope it’s a freaking miserable one for you.

              1. DerfDiggy says:

                Lol, Jason gets it…I hope the same for sir…
