You've gotta love the leeway that NBC gets for its Sunday Night games, and it seriously has to piss ESPN off that they can't do something similar. For those of you not aware, starting after Week 10 NBC has the option of swapping their Sunday Night game with any Sunday afternoon contest. Fox and CBS each can protect five games each year, but only one a week, and NBC has to let everyone know they Tuesday 12 days before.
Week 11 the network will be trading Chicago at Seattle for New England at Buffalo. So while ESPN will be stuck with Tennessee at Denver that week.....NBC will be hyping up Tom Brady for a good 4-5 hours and loving every minute of it, and guess what? They have him again in Week 12 when the Eagles head to Foxboro.
Can we just call NBC, TBC?
