Seahawks-Cardinals game not selected for Sunday Night Football

The NFL released the Week 12 schedule, which solved one of the Seahawks’ lingering scheduling questions: The Seahawks’ game against the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 22 will remain at 1:05 p.m. on Sunday. That game could have been “flexed” to the Sunday Night Football time slot, but the New York Giants game against the Dallas Cowboys will remain on Sunday Night Football instead.

The Seahawks-Cardinals game is shaping up to have huge implications for the playoffs and division race — the Cardinals are perceived in many corners as Super Bowl favorites at the midway point while the Seahawks, obviously, are the defending champions — and it was thought that that might be enough to want it in the prime-time Sunday night slot. While it may be disappointing for Seahawks fans, who wanted another prime-time game, it’s worth remembering that the Seahawks play just four days later, in San Francisco on Thanksgiving night, so even saving those few hours could be beneficial in some small way.
