Redskins @ Vikings Moves to NBC's Sunday Night Football
Dec. 23 National Football League Game Had Been Scheduled for Fox
By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 12/10/2007 11:33:00 AM
As part of NBC's rights package, the network gets flexible scheduling for the final seven weeks of the season, which is the ability to move some higher-profile late-season games to primetime -- a way to give it more ratings-friendly matchups while giving the NFL a national audience for games with playoff implications, although the move is probably more about giving the surging Vikings more airtime.
The Skins and Vikings are currently in a race for the last National Football Conference playoff spot, but the Redskins are already scheduled for this week's Sunday-night game at conference and division rivals the New York Giants. A loss for Washington there could reduce the Minnesota game to little more than an academic exercise and a chance to watch rookie Vikings phenom Adrian Peterson run the ball.
