Baltimore Ravens vs Seattle Seahawks week 14: Flexed out of primetime for Texans vs Patriots

With a rare Ravens season below .500, the Ravens have been flexed out of their primetime game against the Seattle Seahawks and pushed back into a regular time slot. Instead, fans will get to see the league pump up J.J. Watt vs Tom Brady.

The Ravens have one of the worst records in the NFL, so it should come as no surprise that the league wants to take them out of primetime slots and push in someone maybe a little more deserving.

At the beginning of the season, I'm sure the NFL and it's schedule makers expected the Ravens week 14 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks was going to be one of the best games in the second half of the season. With the Seahawks at 6-5 and the Ravens at 3-7 right now, it looks like fate had different ideas.

Instead, the Patriots and Texans game has been pushed into the Ravens/Seahawks Sunday night spot. It makes sense when you think about it though. The Texans have J.J. Watt, the most marketable defensive player in the league, while the Patriots obviously have quarterback Tom Brady. With both teams leading in their divisions, it also gives the league a chance to talk more about playoffs towards the end of the season.

It's still upsetting that the Ravens have been taken out of their primetime game since it was one of a few positive things for this team this year. Looks like we get to watch the game at 1pm EST again though.
