FLEXIBLE AND CROSS-FLEX SCHEDULING:  “Flexible scheduling” will be used in Weeks 10-15 and 17.  No flexible scheduling in effect in Week 16 due to Christmas weekend.  Additionally, in Weeks 5-9, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks.  Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time.  Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights.  A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game.  For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to December 31.
