Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers week 16 game to be flexed if New York Giants win

New, comments

The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping that the Giants tank on Monday Night Football. If they happen to win tonight, the week 16 matchup between the AFC North rivals will be flexed out of it's primetime slot and put as a regular game. If the Giants lose, the NFL will keep what should be a bloody battle between two teams that hate each other as the national game instead.

The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping that the Giants tank on Monday Night Football.

If they happen to win tonight, the week 16 matchup between the AFC North rivals will be flexed out of it's primetime slot and put as a regular game. If the Giants lose, the NFL will keep what should be a bloody battle between two teams that hate each other as the national game instead.

When the NFL launched it's ability to flex games around, it was met with mixed feelings by fans. But it's sole intention is to put on a better football game for a national audience. With the Baltimore Ravens sitting at 4-9 after a blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the league would be well within it's rights to take that game out of the limelight.

Ravens fans will be quick to point out that Ravens-Steelers football is always a good game regardless of records or talent. Both teams legitimately dislike each other and it is a game that almost always ends in heartbreak for one of the teams involved. As shown earlier this season when the Ravens eeked out a victory in Pittsburgh, it should still be an interesting game.
