With the NFL Schedule set to be released on Tuesday April 20 live on ESPN2, fans are anticipating if their team will be featured on Prime Time. Particularly, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets fans who have seen their teams make big splashes this last week, with the Jets adding another threat to line up opposite of Braylon Edwards in Santonio Holmes and the Dolphins acquiring Brandon Marshall from the Denver Broncos.
Can such moves prompt Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL to go back and make some last minute tweaks to the nationally televised games?
Goodell is worried that teams that clinch their respective divisions early in the season are tanking the last few games, so he pushed for more divisional games towards the end of the season. The Dolphins and Jets have faced each other prior to week four of the season in five of the last eight years. If Goodell gets his wish, these two teams might not see each other until after Santonio Holmes returns from his suspension.
What better than a week five game between the New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night?
If that isn't intriguing enough to make a quick revision, I don't know what is.
