NFL TV Schedule

Aw Christmas just messes everything up right? – Week 16 NFL TV Schedule

Now we have to move games from Sunday to Saturday and there’s still two Sunday games but one is in the afternoon and at least the Monday nighter is still there and NFL FOOTBAW IS MEANT TO BE ON SUNDAYS AND AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

OK relax.  It’ll all be fine.  The bulk of the week’s schedule has been moved to Saturday (Christmas Eve) so you’ll have to remember that.  Then again if you honestly believe that the NFL would keep the majority of their schedule on Christmas Day you must be insane.  Even Commissioner Gingersnaps wouldn’t do something as dickish as that…would he?

Alright here’s the schedule with some good tidings afterwards:

Good Tidings

  • Four games won’t be shown up here except for you yahoos who subscribe to RedZone/Sunday Ticket. Then again, I guess I am a bit of a yahoo for getting the U.S. College Sports Package so I shouldn’t say much.
  • The fact that there are so many games not in the main timeslot is good…for this time only. Normally I hate that shit.  Keep most of the games on Sundays.  Otherwise it’s overkill.  This is the exception, alright Roger?
  • CTV Two has no coverage this week. I don’t know why nor do I care.

There are quite a few games with meaning this week.  So instead of doing more bullet points we will get right to the playoff scenarios since there are plenty of them.  I will put them in order of when the teams play this week.

Clinching Scenarios

  1. A win OR

  4. A Green Bay loss OR
