According to a report from John Barchard - a member of our sister site, Bleeding Green Nation - if the Ravens lose against the Texans on Monday Night Football, it’s highly likely that the Ravens’ Week 14 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers is likely to be flexed out of the Sunday Night Football slot.
Per @MarcFarzetta, if the Ravens lose to the Texans on MNF this week... More than likely the #Eagles will get flexed to SNF vs #Rams Week 14— John Barchard (@JohnBarchard) November 24, 2017
The game that would be flexed into its spot would be the Eagles at the Rams, which holds an interesting storyline with quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz going No. 1 and No. 2 overall in the 2016 draft.
From the Ravens perepective, this would likely be the first time in atleast a decade that the Ravens and Steelers haven’t played at least one primetime game. The flex would make sense, as the NFL has had some stinkers in primetime, the most notable being the three straight weeks of the Miami Dolphins in primetime.
Again, this largely depends on the Ravens ability to beat a depleted Texans team that has lost three of its four best players. With that being the case, I like the Ravens’ chances of staying in primetime.
