Go back to the NE board. Your opinion isn’t needed here.

Market size is irrelevant in the NFL. Teams that draw are all that matter. The Packers are by far the smallest market and a big draw. The Steelers are in a small market and a massive draw. The Bills just drew the highest regular season ratings in 3 years. I know football is still new to Pats fans but you have some learning to do.

Oh i dont know the second and sixth largest markets.

Market size isn’t the deciding factor, market saturation or the % of the market that watches/attends games is what matters.  LA is the largest market, and can’t sell out or get local engagement from the market.  Green Bay, Pittsburg, and Buffalo are three of the smallest markets And would never get prime time games if the networks/NFL based their scheduling on market size.

I agree to a point when your scheduling in the offseason. Also if pitt was playing dallas that would be flexed, i just dont see buffalo being a big enough draw to flex the game to sunday night. Nbc does have a say in who gets flexed.

Again, they just played the highest rated regular season game in 3 seasons!!  You’ve got to keep up if you want to enter the debate. The Bills have traditionally been a very big draw when they’ve played on national TV. That was confirmed 3 days ago. https://www.newyorkupstate.com/buffalo-bills/2019/11/buffalo-bills-win-over-cowboys-highest-rated-thanksgiving-day-cbs-game-in-27-years.html

If marketing people are doing their job, the market size equals the draw. 

 

In other words market size should be population likely to watch the game, or target audience...not number of bodies living in the region.

Games have to be flexed atleast 12 days prior to the game according to their rules I believe
