NBC to show Skins-Ravens in prime time; Pats-Seahawks moved to 4 p.m. ET
NEW YORK -- The Washington-Baltimore game on Dec. 7 in Baltimore has been moved from 1 p.m. ET to 8:15 p.m. and will be televised by NBC as part of the NFL's flexible scheduling.
It will replace New England at Seattle, which now will be played at 4:05 p.m. ET. It's the first switch of a game from afternoon to prime time this season.
The Redskins-Ravens game is between two teams in the playoff race with 7-4 records. While the Patriots, also 7-4, remain in contention, Seattle (2-9) is out of it.
The flex scheduling was instituted with the new television contract in 2005 to allow more attractive games to be switched to prime time in the last two months of the season.
