NFL Schedule: Eagles vs. Patriots game flexed out of national spotlight since the Birds are boring and bad

New, comments

Probably a good call by the NFL.

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Week 13 game between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots is still scheduled to start at 4:25 PM, but it has been flexed out of the national spotlight. As noted by Howard Eskin:

It's no secret why the NFL made the change. The Eagles are currently 4-6 after coming off two bad losses. They're not fun to watch. They're boring and bad. The currently undefeated 9-0 New England Patriots are probably going to demolish the Birds, so it'll be an especially uninteresting game.

Taking place of the Eagles-Patriots game in the national spotlight will be a NFC South battle between the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints.

Here's a look at Philadelphia's remaining schedule. Only six more games to survive through:

Week 12 - @ Detroit Lions (Nov. 26 ,12:30 PM, FOX) *Thanksgiving Game*

Week 13 - @ New England Patriots (Dec. 6, 4:25 PM, FOX)

Week 14 - Buffalo Bills (Dec. 13, 1:00 PM, CBS)

Week 15 - Arizona Cardinals (Dec. 20, 1:00 PM, FOX)

Week 16 - Washington Redskins (Dec. 26, 8:25 PM, NFL Network) *Saturday*

Week 17 - @ New York Giants (Jan. 3, 1:00 PM)
