The Jets face the San Diego Chargers that week in a game that was originally scheduled to be aired by NBC on Sunday Night Football at 8:20 p.m. ET. Instead, that game will air at 1 p.m. on CBS. NBC will show the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football.
The Giants meet the Baltimore Ravens that week. That game has been moved to the 4:25 p.m. time slot and will be shown by FOX.
The schedule changes are really a kick in the teeth for the 6-7 Jets. Their game against the Chargers might have playoff implications, but it is clearly a matchup of two teams who are not as good as the 49ers and Seahawks. In all honesty, I can't blame NBC at all for not wanting to showcase the Jets.
