Every year, NBC chooses their game of the week before the schedule is released, much like ESPN and Monday Night Football. But NBC chooses their Week 17 game a week before the season ends. ESPN doesn't have a MNF game in Week 17. So NBC needs to get this right.
Last year they chose the Bengals at the Jets. The Jets needed to win that game to make the playoffs while the Bengals were already in. New York won 37-0.
This year, I am taking the Week 17 schedule and trying to make the decision for NBC and where to send Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth.
THIS IS IN NO SPECIFIC ORDER.
