What is Flex Scheduling?

Flex scheduling or “flexible scheduling” is a way for the NFL to make sure viewers are getting exciting and quality primetime match ups, all season long. The procedure, which was implemented in 2006, applied to only Sunday Night Football games but for the 2023 season, flex scheduling will apply to both Monday and Thursday night games as well.

When does Flex Scheduling start?

Sunday Night Football: Flex scheduling can be used twice between Weeks 5-10. It can also be used during Weeks 11-17 at the NFL’s discretion.
Monday Night Football: Flex scheduling can be used between Weeks 12-17 at the league’s discretion.
Thursday Night Football: Flex scheduling may be used up to two times between Weeks 13-17.

NFL’s Flex Scheduling Procedures:

During the Flex Scheduling Windows, the games initially scheduled for Sunday Night Football (on NBC), Monday Night Football (ESPN or ABC), and Thursday Night Football (on Amazon Prime) are tentatively scheduled and subject to change; Only Sunday afternoon games (or those listed as TBD) are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, Monday night, or Thursday night, in which case the initially scheduled Sunday, Monday, or Thursday night game would be moved to Sunday afternoon;Sunday afternoon games may also be moved between 1:00 p.m. and 4:05 p.m. or 4:25 p.m. ET.
