FOX TV protects two Packers games

FOX Television has protected the Green Bay Packers' games at Minnesota (Nov. 21) and home against the New York Giants (Dec. 26), according to an NFL source, meaning they can't be moved to the NBC Sunday night prime time game as flex scheduling allows in Weeks 11-17. Kickoff times for both games will remain the same -- noon for the game at Minnesota and 3:15 p.m. for the game against the Giants at Lambeau Field. As part of the flex scheduling, FOX and CBS each are allowed to "protect" five games that can't be moved to NBC's prime-time Sunday night broadcast. That means FOX used two of its five protections on the Packers. The Week 12 game at Atlanta could possibly be moved, but perhaps only to the 3:15 p.m. game because that is a FOX national TV doubleheader game. The Sunday night game that weekend is San Diego at Indianapolis, which NBC may want to stick with. There are no protections allowed in Week 17, and that Sunday night game doesn't have to be announced until six days prior to the game. -- Rob Demovsky, rdemovsk@greenbaypressgazette.com http://twitter.com/RobDemovsky
