I picked Pittsburgh @ Cincinnati. Division match up where the loser's playoff hopes could end. It makes sense. Colts @ Browns is intriguing but seeing as the Colts have all but wrapped up their division, I don't think the interest will be there.

Just a point on the later game, no doubt the Seahawks @ Eagles will be the game CBS show but the game on NBC is Patriots @ Chargers and to me that is a very poor game so im curious as to whether that game will be flexed. Probably would have been announced by now if it was going to be flexed

It is really that bad a game? The Chargers are 7-4 and tied with Kansas for 2nd place in the AFC West. Yes, they went into a bit of a slump, but they had notable injuries.
They now have Ryan Mathews back as their no.1 RB, a good pass rush and a generally solid defence in general. Rivers is a Top 10 QB.
And New Engalnd have to travel to the other side of the country to play them.
I don't think it will get flexed, though i see your point.

Just checking San Diego's remaining schedule. Talk about brutal!
@ Balti
vs New England
vs Denver
@ San Fran
@ Kansas

It's almost as tough, if not tougher than Seattle's:
@ San Fran
@ Philly
vs San Fran
@ Arizona
vs St Louis

It has already been announced that the only change to the week 14 schedule is that Indianapolis at Cleveland will move to Fox. They have the double header but no compelling early game for neutral markets.

For SNF though a game will only be flexed if the originally scheduled game will not rate well.

Tom Brady rates well and Boston is one of the top ten biggest markets in the US. San Diego is essentially the Los Angeles team, and they are playing for a playoff position, currently only being outside of a spot on tie breakers. It is on form a competitive matchup, at least as much as that seems to mean anything with the Patriots these days.

There was no way that game would have been replaced.

And Pittsburgh at Cincinnati and Seattle at Philadelphia had been protected by CBS and Fox respectively so could not have been moved to SNF anyway. There are also appearance quotas which, without checking, may have limited the options for games that could have been moved.

I'd like to see Colts Vs Browns, two teams that haven't had much airtime on Sky this season
