The final Week 15 NFL schedule was announced today with the originally scheduled Baltimore Ravens at San Diego Chargers game remaining in place on NBC's Sunday Night Football.
Following is the final Week 15 NFL schedule::
Thursday, December 15 (Week 15)
Jacksonville at Atlanta
8:00 PM (ET)
This Sunday (Dec. 11), the Raiders-Packers game on CBS was moved from 1:00 PM ET to 4:15 PM ET.
The NFL utilizes "flexible scheduling" on Sundays in Weeks 10-15, 17. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots in those weeks and give teams a chance to play their way onto primetime and into the late-afternoon 4:15 PM ET time slot on CBS and FOX.
For each of the flexible scheduling weeks with the exception of Week 17, the NFL will announce the start times of games on Sundays no later than 12 days prior to that weekend. To ensure a Sunday night game and doubleheader games with playoff implications in Week 17, the flexible scheduling decision for that Sunday may be made on six days notice.
