The NFL must have taken notes from the fans last season, as the plethora of horrible Sunday night games had fans yawning all year long. That’s about to change, as flex scheduling will begin in week 5 instead of week 11 this season, ensuring quality games every Sunday night for a large majority of the 2014 campaign.
A tweet from Adam Schefter comfirmed the change:
