Changes to the NFL’s flex-scheduling system, which was put into place in 2006, could be coming next season, with more games being affected.
The league is creating a new weekly system of cross flexing, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. For example, Schefter writes that the league could take an early game on one network (CBS or Fox) and flex it into the late-afternoon slot on the other network. In exchange, the other network would get the late-afternoon game in an early start.
Details are still being worked out, Schefter reports.
