The Patriots Getting Removed From Sunday Night Football is a Good Thing
Because lets face it- we all dread the next day at work
NESN annoucned earlier today that the Patriots/ Jets Week 12 matchup originally scheduled for Sunday Night, 11/27 has been "flexed out" of its originally scheduled time slot in exchange the Denver/Kansas City game on the same day.
I don't know about you, but I was elated to hear such news. I've always hated 8:30 games on the eve of workdays. I've never understood it. Do organizations like the NFL, NBA, NHL & MLB not realize a large majority of us work for a living?
This move makes sense. Sunday Night Football is all about ratings and when you compare the competitive matchup between Denver & KC vs. NE and NYJ (who are terrible) it's likely that the former will attract more of a national audience.
And guess what? We all get to bed earlier here in the Northeast!
