Note to any Jets fans planning on attending the game on the 23rd against the Chargers, the game is no longer the Sunday Night game. The NFL has announced today that per flex procedures, the Jets game against the Chargers has been moved back to 1 PM, and been replaced by the 49ers game against the Seahawks. So, although it is late December, you do not have to freeze completely as you would if the game were at 8:20 PM. Make a note with your tickets so you can change your plans.
This really isn’t a suprise, with the Jets on the fringe of the playoff race, and the Chargers being further out of it. This game has far less national appeal than a game pitting the 49ers vs. the Seahawks. This also could be a blessing in disguise for the Jets. Have you seen how we have done in prime time lately? It hasn’t been pretty, we may just be better off playing in the afternoon. Playing at 10 AM Chargers time is not great for the Chargers either.
