Week 17 TV predictions
 
I'm thinking Panthers Falcons will be the SNF game and Steelers Bengals and Lions Packers will be the Sky games

Cincinnati/Pittsburgh has been flexed into the SNF slot.

Detroit/Green Bay switched to the late game, and I guess Carolina/Atlanta will now be the early game on Sky next week.

SNF is steelers@Bengals. Lions@Packers been flexed into the 9.25pm slot, so that will be sky's late game.

What a bizarre choice to flex into the SNF slot. The Steelers are already in the playoffs and the Bengals could miss out totally if they lose their remaining two matches.

Falcons/Panthers is winner takes all, no other teams or scenarios come into play.

That is exactly what I thought. If the NFL had sense they would of waited until after tonight's game and then work it out, or at least say depending on MNF result will depend what game will be flexed to SNF next week.

Even with the winner take all scenario, I'm not sure the NFL would want two teams with losing records on primetime to round off the regular season.

2010 regular season on 2nd Jan 2011 had the 7-9 Rams @ 6-9 Seahawks in a winner takes all situation so it has happened

2008 had Denver vs San Diego in a battle for .500 supremacy too

Given that CIN/PIT is a realistic game for Wildcard Weekend it does seem a strange choice

They are clearly chasing ratings.

By the end of today both the Steelers and Bengals could already be in the playoffs so they could be merely playing on primetime to decide who gets the home playoff tie. And as said above, they could easily be playing each other again next week dependent on other results.

Is it possible that FOX protected the Falcons/Panthers match from being moved?

Can someone please explain to me how the Steelers have apparently secured a playoff spot but aren't top of the division, despite having more wins than Cincy?
