NFL Owners Approve Proposal To Flex Thursday Night Football Games

The National Football League and its team owners have approve da proposal that will allow Thursday night games to be flexed to Sunday and vice versa.

The proposal will carry some of the same restrictions that games flexed in and out of the Sunday night slot have already held. Flexes are only permitted during the final five eligible weeks of the regular season — Weeks 13 to 17, as “Thursday Night Football” isn’t on the Week 18 schedule — and no more than two games per season can be flexed.

The Giants, Jets, Packers, Bears, Raiders, Detroit, Bengals, and Steelers voted against the change but ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that the flexible scheduling of TNF games has been approved.
