I mean it’s special for sure, but just wondering if it qualifies as primetime. Or if we could wind up with 6 night games plus the thanksgiving game? Not sure how the NFL classifies some of these specialty games

Well if you go strictly by the time of day then technically, it's not, or shouldn't count. Only the 3rd game would be considered a primetime game. 


Based on the term itself it's "between 7pm and 9pm when most people are watching tv" but in the sense of Thanksgiving, most people are watching all day.


Kind of like would you consider the Macy's Christmas parade primetime.  I'm sure there are millions watching but it's at 10am.  Who knows?

That was my first thought. It looks legit but only 4 prime time seems odd 


Thanksgiving is considered primetime my league workers regardless of timeslot. LAR opener is considered SNF and Miami can flex at seasons end.

Buffalo @ Rams feels way more compelling than Broncos/Seahawks and about even with KC/TB.


The Seahawks were 7-10 with Rus last year and now they have Drew Lock. I get he was traded, but this seems like a game I have next to zero interest in unless it is early in the season...and even then....

So much this. Seattle has absolutely zero intrigue for me. They are going to be a tire fire IMO. Metcalf is wise to demand an extension now. Because his numbers are going to be garbage with QB of the week throwing to him.

Should we trust someone who can’t spell Pittsburgh right?

Not at all, because Packers are already scheduled to play in London on the same day as shown on his Bills schedule.

Because it’s a huge event and I would love the Bills to be a part of it. It’s one of the most watched games of the regular season.


I’ve seen plenty of below average arms have success in the NFL. 

Not recently.

Except for Thanksgiving.

He was talking about between Week 1 & 2

You have no less than 4 months from a complete schedule release to the opening kick off of the NFL season. Your booking window only increases if you have no intentions of going to week 1.  Airbnb and Southwest give free cancellations as long as you are a week or more out from your travel/stay. If you have a CC associated with a hotel and/or an airline most will allow for free cancellations too.


I just sort of read this as "I cannot go to Kansas City in October because you didn't tell me until May", which seems wild to me and cannot be a scalable complaint.


There is more than ample time to schedule a long weekend without any real financial commitment.

Then you read it wrong.


Also, for some people it's more than a long weekend, they might want to stay longer for whatever reason.


The NFL can release the dates earlier than this.

Seeing as the Packers will be in London...it sure would be wild!! 

It's still possible. There is a time difference. So they are done at 1230 PM EST they have 8 hours to fly home.


Do you not understand time zones? 😁
