NFL announces flex scheduling can start in Week 5
The 2014 Seahawks schedule is coming our way at 5 p.m. PT, but the NFL has released a bit of schedule-related news to hold us over until then.
Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com notes the change comes with a bit of fine print, "The NFL can't change the tentative 'Sunday Night Football' game every week. The league can flex up to two games total into Sunday night between Weeks 5-10. The rest of the flexible schedule procedures from previous years remains intact. After Week 11, the NFL can flex any Sunday night game."
The last time the Seahawks had a game "flexed" into primetime came on Dec. 23, 2012, when their Sunday afternoon bout with the division rival San Francisco 49ers was bumped into the evening slot. The Seahawks won that matchup, 42-13.
