Afternoon NFL Game Switches Broadcasters Due To NBC Flex Move
Published November 21, 2011
"We worked with CBS and Fox to ensure a broadcast pattern on Sunday afternoon Dec. 4 which will increase the coverage areas of our nine 1:00pm games," said NFL Dir of Corporate Communications Dan Masonson. "This move allows the games in those windows to be broadcast to a wider audience." Sources say Fox protected its Packers-Giants game from being flexed into "SNF." Sources also said the NFL did not want NBC to take the Bengals-Steelers game from CBS, worried that the loss of that game would weaken CBS' single-header window too much.
