There’s no question the Vikings have been one of this season’s prime time teams. And now, in reflection of that status, the league has used its flex scheduling powers to bump Minnesota’s December 6th clash with the Arizona Cardinals from the 3:15 Central time slot to the coveted Sunday night 7:20 NBC featured game position.
To make room for that potentially pivotal Vikes-Cards game, the league has moved the Patriots-Dolphins match-up to noon on CBS. Yes Viking fans, it’s really true: your team is more important than the Patriots, at least in the eyes of the NFL and NBC.
The Favre effect strikes again.
