How does the NFL not have Jets or Giants on Primetime this weekend?


Recommended Posts

For the 20th anniversary of 9/11. If you recall Jets were on primetime vs the Cowboys on the 10 year anniversary.

 

I understand both teams haven’t been great, but it’s still another stupid move by the league.

I'm assuming this is a troll post but the answer is that both teams have been among the worst in the NFL for half a decade. 

Honestly, there were a couple years there where the Giants sucked and they were still in primetime constantly. Thankfully they've finally adjusted.

Better to not have the game tied to that event, IMHO.

Totally disagree. To me having us all together watching football in a 75K stadium is a big FU to the terrorists.

Who cares about the matchup? The spotlight should be on NY on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

Jets, Giants, Panthers, Broncos.  18 combined wins in 2021.

Chiefs had almost that many by themselves.

true, but if they really wanted it they could have planed ahead an gave them a better matchup on week 1.

Jets vs Pats are always a draw. so are Giants vs Cowboys. regardless of the records.

but as someone mentioned, they don't play on Saturdays. but next year it falls on a Sunday. thats really when one team should get it.

Maybe because they were a playoff team 10 years and deserved to be on prime time.  Not too many people want to watch a 2 win team on prime time.

As if watching the mayor and forner governer isnt enough to ruin the name of NY you would like to present the ultimate Toilet Bowl to the world.

are you guys watching the Mets-Yankees game? really nice how there doing it. maybe next year when Sept 11 falls on a Sunday we could have a Jets-Giants game. or a Jets-Pats game which was the 1st game after the attack.

if they do it the same as tonights game where they had Torre and Valentine throw out the 1st pitch. . interviewing guys like Torre and Piazza. Smoltz who is calling the game was there to as a Brave.

just saying it would be nice to see the same with the Jets. maybe bring back Herm Edwards who won his 1st game. bring back old Jets like Vinny and Mo. Curtis Martin... 

MLB does this stuff every year. the NFL doesnt do it like that. maybe because both the Jets and Giants were on the road the 1st game after 9-11. the Mets were the 1st NY team to play in NY after the attacks.
