    What NFL teams usually have the most primetime games? Also, what's the deciding factor for those teams to get those primetime spots on television??

    Cowboys. They get the most because they are "America's team"

    I guess the teams that get the most primetime games are the teams that bring the NFL the most profit.

    The Cowboys, Colts, Steelers, Patriots, Giants, Jets, Packers...

    It tends to depend most largely upon teams with winning records, teams forecasted to win and large market areas. Here's the 2010 primetime schedule.

    Awesome, thanks! I've always wondered the reasoning behind the scheduling.
