As a result, the previously scheduled Sunday Night Football matchup, Los Angeles Rams at Los Angeles Chargers, has been moved to 4:25pm ET and will be televised by CBS.

Rams-Chargers should have been SNF on Xmas night where it couldn’t have been flexed out, which would have made a great Xmas present for the people of LA like Raiders-Rams 1985 on MNF.

But the schedule-makers decided that Russell Wilson would be more relevant than Justin Herbert, a move which totally backfired as the Broncos are in last place and out of contention, while the Chargers are on the cusp of the playoffs.

I had initially said on a forum that being the first defending champion to lose an SNF appearance should have resulted in McVay losing his job, but after seeing all the replies to it, I realized I was silly.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact that the schedule-makers screwed up big time before the season. Bengals/Bucs would have been a better game to put on CBS and Nick yesterday (the Fox game was fine). Tom Brady would have been honored to be in a NIck-aired game, and Nick in turn would have been honored to feature the GOAT in one of their NFL telecasts.
