Lets take a closer look at the 2010 NFL schedule. Specifically the PRIME TIME Thursday night games, Sunday nighters, and Monday night football.
Colts, Steelers, Eagles, Patriots, Cowboys, Saints = 5 games
Vikings, Packers, Bears, Ravens, Jets, Chargers, Giants, 49ers = 4 games
Redskins, Texans, Dolphins = 3 games
Titans, Falcons = 2 games
Bengals, Chiefs, Broncos, Cardinals, Jaguars, Panthers, Lions = 1 game
Browns, Seahawks, Bills, Raiders, Buccaneers, Rams = ZERO
A few thoughts; I can't believe the Raiders are not playing a prime time game. It seems like they have been a fixture on Monday nights for decades. Big TV markets get preferential treatment. The NFL loves them some NFC East (14 prime time games)
Maybe some day, my Lions will get a real prime time game.
