    Re: 2014 NFL Schedule Predictions

    Schedule wish list:

    1. Can we please stop ending the season in Cinci?
    2. Pittsburgh game at Heinz Field Sunday at 1pm please.
    3. Miami game in November or early December - because I'm going and the warm weather will be nice!
    4. Mainly all 1pm Sunday games at home.
    5. See #4, but opening the season on Sunday Night Football would be great. Just not Monday because traffic will suck.

    That was referring to the Pit game at Heinz. Many people here are thinking one of the Pitt games will be nationally televised. I'm not so sure. The bloom is off that rivalry a bit, nationally. Neither team made the playoffs last year. Neither team is a sexy, high-powered offense, and I don't know that you can give it the "slobber-knocker defensive war" narrative that made the game so appealing in the past.

    Couple that with increased interest in the Bengals (playoffs three of last four years) and Browns (if their QB is named Manziel) and the BAL/PIT games may not be the marquee AFCN matchup this year from a national perspective.

    I think the Car home game is more likely than the ATL game because of the Steve Smith factor

    Not all primetime games have to be big ratings getters. Last season we had Mia/TB on MNF and Buff/Cle & KC/Phi on TNF. All 6 of those teams stunk in 2012. Car/Bal can't be viewed as any worse than those.

    Yes, but the Panthers play the Seahawks, the Saints twice, the Falcons twice, the Bengals (two QBs selected from the 2011 draft, the league can and will market that), the Packers (media darling+ one of the flagship franchises), the Bears (see the Packers), the Eagles (large media market), and the Steelers (they get a billion prime-time games a year). Sure the Ravens could get a prime-time game because of the Steve Smith factor, but there's also a lot of other marketable games that the Panthers could get instead.

    Does anyone know the actual day that the schedule gets announced?

    I don't believe it's been announced yet but it should be soon. Last year, it came out on April 18th.

    It's usually been on a Tuesday, so I would guess the 15th or 22nd if it's like previous year.

    The Panthers made the playoffs last year. This and the Steve Smith storyline makes it compelling for prime time TV.

    The TV markets of both cities tells me otherwise.

    Re: 2014 NFL Schedule Predictions

    I wonder how much of the decision of what games get the national spotlight is driven by the presence of premier fantasy players. Fantasy football has become so huge, I bet there is a correlation between TV ratings and players like Stafford and Megatron, who play in a small market for a non-playoff team, but are prime players in every fantasy league.

    Pretty sure a match-up of 2 potential playoff contenders would factor more than market-size: See Colts/Chargers circa 2013
