NFL doesn’t flex Jets – Pats game for Week 10

By Marc A. Greenberg

The NFL flex schedule begins November 13 (Week 10) and the Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears is the first victim, being moved from 1pm to 4:15pm on Fox.

It’s so nice of the NFL to move games in freezing climates from 1pm to 4:15pm to accommodate its fans.

The New York Jets home game against the New England Patriots remains at 8:15.

If this past week is any reflection on the weather for November, then bundle up for MetLife Stadium, Jets fans.

For Weeks 11-15, the NFL will announce any schedule changes no later than 12 days before the games in question.

There is no flex schedule for Week 16, when the Jets play home to the New York Giants at 1pm on Saturday, December 24.

For New Years Day, Week 17, the NFL will flex a game and provide 6 days notice.  The Jets visit Miami at 1pm for that one, with the expectation that no flex will take place as the Dolphins are 0-7.
