    As of now, its TBD.

    Here is the week 17 schedule:

    http://www.nfl.com/schedules#Week17

    Obviously the most compelling matchup would be Broncos-Chargers, but would NBC flex that game prior to week 16 results?

    The other possibilites are:

    NE @ BUF
    NYG @ MIN
    MIA @ NYJ
    DAL @ PHI

    What do you guys think?

    How far ahead of time do they have to flex it? If they are willing to wait until after this weekend, and things go our way, our games would definitely be the most compelling. If things don't, then Miami and New York maybe, because that one could also determine a division champion.

    Its supposed to be 13 days, which would make it today. However I can't find anything that says its been chosen.

    Dal/Phi is the game they'll show.

    Bigger markets, bigger following.

    DAL/PHI and they'll be upset about losing out on MIA vs. NYJ.

    I agree. I also wouldn't be surprised by Jets/Miami. But I seriously doubt Bolts/Donks gets the game, even if it was for the division.

    Are you sure? I thought that tonight was the last Sunday night game of the year. Per NBC's website the game is scheduled for 1:15 PST.

    edit: I was wrong.

    Sunday, Dec. 28 – (Flex Week, Teams TBA)

    I really don't like night games in SD. Rather them play at 1PM.

    The very last game of the regular season. Prime time. Night game. Everything on the line.

    Oh crap.

    I think we play well in prime time this year, and even the one loss to the Colts was a solid effort undone by Norval's coaching.

    I'm going to have to fly right back down after this game for the wild card!!!

    Hahahhaha! You SHOULD be afraid. 2 straight losses and coming to OUR house? Broncos will be watching the playoffs from their couches.
