Briefly:2010 NFL Flex Scheduling
As part of NBC's agreement to televise Sunday night football, the NFL will implement a flexible schedule for Sunday start times for the final seven weeks of the season. This will allow the NFL to bring more attractive matchups to a national audience late in the season, and allow teams having breakout years to play their way onto the Sunday night schedule on NBC.
The 2010 NFL schedule will list start times for all games during the flex weeks as they were created in the Spring. The Sunday night game will be listed as scheduled in the Spring. For the 2010 season, flexible scheduling will occur in Weeks 11-17.
Twelve days (12) prior to the scheduled Sunday games in each flex week, the NFL will decide (after consultation with CBS, FOX and NBC) and announce the game being moved to 8:30 ET and also may announce games moving to 4:15 ET. (For the Week 17 games, the decision may be made on four days (4) notice to ensure a Sunday night game with playoff implications.)
Fans planning to attend during flexible scheduled weeks should be aware they may have to adjust their plans in the event of a change in the kickoff time.
