Patriots Chargers is in San Diego which evens things out. Patriots should be playing for home field, chargers for a playoff spot. Brady vs Rivers.
Seahawks Cardinals could possibly determine the NFC west, If the cardinals fall off hard, and are on a skid, perhaps it gets flexed though, but they were 3-1 with Stanton. Only loss was in Denver where damn near everyone loses.
Again, consider that these games were scheduled way back around April before the draft. With the exception of the giants, every team playing on Sunday night the rest of the way has a winning record as of right now. To me they did a good job. Check the schedule, for those weeks and try and find a game that for sure would be a better game.
Sneakerpro mentioned the possibility of lions patriots being the Sunday night game instead of cowboys giants for week 12. I wouldn't mind that.
And for shoes, I stand corrected, it was November in the past, just realized they changed it to week 5.
