Week 16 Panthers-Giants matchup moved to Sunday night

National Football League

The NFL announced flex schedule game-time changes for four Week 16 games on Tuesday.

The Carolina Panthers-New York Giants game on Sunday, Dec. 21 will be played at 8:15 p.m. ET on NBC, and the San Diego Chargers-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game that day will move to 1 p.m. ET on CBS.

Two other Week 16 game-time changes: the Philadelphia Eagles-Washington Redskins and Atlanta Falcons-Minnesota Vikings games on Sunday, Dec. 21 move from 1 p.m. ET to 4:15 p.m. ET on FOX.

The flex schedule game-time changes for this Sunday (Dec. 14) are Pittsburgh Steelers-Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos-Carolina Panthers on CBS moving from 1 p.m. ET to 4:15 p.m. ET.

The NFL will utilize “flexible scheduling” on Sundays in Weeks 11-17. Flexible scheduling will ensure quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots in those weeks and give teams a chance to play their way onto primetime and into the late-afternoon 4:15 p.m. ET time slot on CBS and FOX.

For each of the flexible scheduling weeks, with the exception of Week 17, the NFL will announce the start times of games on Sundays no later than 12 days prior to that weekend. 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.

Oh yay! Two straight Sunday Night Football games involving the Giants!

I gotta say, I am really looking forward to that game.

I think the Steelers take on the Ravens that week too, so we should be able to get that game locally as well. At least, I think they do. I know earlier in the season I didn't want to see anymore Steelers games, but around now is when that type of football becomes really, really fun to watch. Also their offense got better so that it isn't as irritating to watch anymore. But still, it's that defense. They score 2 TDs a game! That's so stupid! How is that even possible? Every single yard and offensive score in that game is going to be a war.

Panthers-Giants isn't going to be as good as Steelers-Ravens, but it might have the potential to be close. I'm just not as sold on either of those defenses as I am on the Steelers and Ravens.

Edit-I just checked, Baltimore-Steelers is next week. But Giants play SNF and we play early game...so we should still get it.

Week 16s late game is us, but there's a great Steelers-Titans game on early that I want to see as well. I can't believe it, I want to watch Steelers football now lol.
