Dolphins-Jets among three games NBC's primetime slot
Dec. 15--According to an NBC spokesperson, the network's flex schedule will be decided by NFL officials after the conclusion of this weekend's games, and announced next Monday.


Along with the Dec. 28th Dolphins-Jets showdown, which could decide the AFC East winner if both teams win this Sunday, Dallas playing at Philadelphia, and the Giants playing at Minnesota are also believed to be strong contender for NBC's Week 17 primetime game.

Being slotted in that flex game would push the Dolphins-Jets game, which will be played at The Meadowlands, from a 1 p.m. kickoff to 8:15 p.m.

The Giants clinched a playoff berth last week despite losing to Philadelphia, but failed to secure the division with Sunday night's 20-8 loss to Dallas.

The Vikings (9-5) lead the NFC North by a game with a home game against the Falcons on deck this Sunday, and the season-finale against the Giants. The Chicago Bears (8-6) aren't far behind Minnesota and have Green Bay at home this week and visit Houston in Week 17.

The Cowboys, now 9-5, have an outside shot at winning the NFC East title if they can beat Baltimore at home on Saturday night, and then Philadelphia on the road in Week 17.

The Eagles will fight to go to 8-5-1 on tonight against Cleveland, which would give them an decent shot at a NFC wild card spot, then plays at Washington this Sunday. A loss in either of those games could lesson the appeal of a Cowboys-Eagles games.
