(Doesn't the NFL know that fans want to see more than just the Pats play?)

The league pushed back the start of New England's game at the Buffalo Bills (http://www.nfl.com/teams/buffalobills/profile?team=BUF) on Nov. 18 to 8:15 p.m. and the broadcast will move from CBS to NBC. Originally, Patriots-Bills contest was set for 1 p.m. on CBS, while Chicago at Seattle was the night game.

Chicago will now play at Seattle at 4:15pm on Fox.

The switch comes in the first week of the NFL's flexible television schedule period this season, a new wrinkle in the league's broadcast policy that came into effect last year. The flex schedule was negotiated into the new TV contract to ensure contending teams play in prime time late in the season.
There's no contending team hotter than the Patriots (9-0), who are coming off a come-from-behind 24-20 win at the previously undefeated Indianapolis Colts (http://www.nfl.com/teams/indianapoliscolts/profile?team=IND) on Sunday. New England, which has a bye this week, is attempting to become the second team to post a perfect record, and first since the 1972 Miami Dolphins (http://www.nfl.com/teams/miamidolphins/profile?team=MIA).
The Bills (4-4), who play at winless Miami this weekend, are suddenly on a roll following a 33-21 win against Cincinnati. The Bills have won three straight and four of five since opening the season 0-3, including a 38-7 loss at New England in Week 3.
The switch means the Patriots will play three consecutive prime-time games. They host Philadelphia on Sunday night, Nov. 25, and then play a Monday nighter at Baltimore the following week. New England also closes its schedule with a Saturday night game at the New York Giants (http://www.nfl.com/teams/newyorkgiants/profile?team=NYG) on Dec. 29.
New England has played two prime-time games already this season, hosting San Diego on Sept. 16 and playing at Cincinnati on Oct. 1.
It will be the second prime-time appearance this season for the Bills, following a Monday night meltdown on Oct. 8, when Buffalo allowed nine points in the final 20 seconds in a 25-24 loss to Dallas.

Maybe the Chiefs should cheat so we can get some national coverage?

Yes it does. Wouldn't it be nice to have parity in the NFL?

half a million to cheater man is like saying "You shouldn't rape your sister again."

It doesn't take anything away from Bcheater and shows that playing dirty wins.
















That is all.

im just meaning that if the chiefs staff did it, we'd be the scape goats of the nfl,

the patriots staff suspected of doing, they are still the media darlings of the nfl...

and a million dollars the man and his team has and can obviously pay for.

The media (SportsCenter) has said that the money will not come from the Pats, but from Bcheat's wallet.

Still chump change though.
