– The Rams and Seahawks will play next Sunday for the NFC West Division crown. And the whole country will get to see it.
– The league announced late Sunday night that the Rams would be on in primetime for the first time since a Thursday night appearance on Dec. 20, 2007 against the Steelers. It’s also the first appearance on Sunday Night Football in team history.
– I’ll have plenty more later but for now, here’s the short release provided by the league…
The Week 17 St. Louis at Seattle game on Sunday, January 2 will be played at 7:20 PM CT on NBC, the Jacksonville at Houston and Tennessee at Indianapolis games will move to 4:15 PM ET on CBS and the Chicago at Green Bay, Dallas at Philadelphia and New York Giants at Washington games will move to 4:15 PM ET on FOX, the NFL announced Sunday.
The NFL utilizes “flexible scheduling” on Sundays in Weeks 11-17. To ensure a Sunday night game and doubleheader games with playoff implications in Week 17, the flexible scheduling decision for that Sunday may be made on six days notice.
