Makes sense. Since Baltimore isn't anywhere near the playoff contender the networks thought they'd be, move the better match-ups to the better rated time slots...

Have you ever seen this before?.. I don't think I have. This could be the start of putting the "game of the week" on Monday night.

Yeah, I've seen them move games around before, but not often. NCAA does it a lot more than the pro's.

Actually it happens a lot. But, it usually happens in December when the playoof hunt is tight. This may be the earliest a game has been moved in the season. Other than those moved forced by weather.

I have seen game changes before but not this many at one time. And the Monday night game will never be changed to much goes into setting that show up.

The Monday Night game will be subject to change in the next few years...

They will have the schedule set at the start of the season, and after that they will brodcast the game of the week. They will notify the teams on the Tuesday 13 days before the game. It is being considered by the people in charge.

They put the Saints vs. Giants game on national TV with little notice. If they can relocate a franchise in two weeks... they can put together a TV show.

Damn good points maybe you are right. I think they should play two games on Monday anyway.

Correction: College football doesn't change the schedule...they just leave a whole bunch of games open with starting times "TBD", then they can move the prime games into the prime times.

Remember earlier this year when schedules came out, they announced the possibility of schedule changes. THey said they could occur anytime after week 9, to allow for better ratings.
