Despite reports that the NFL was going to flex out the Giants-Redskins week 13 matchup in favor of the Eagles and Cardinals, it’s not happening.
NFL has decided that Redskins-Giants will remain the Sunday night game on Dec. 1, according to a source. Announcement soon.

NBC would not have been smart to move the Eagles and Cardinals to Sunday night football over the Giants and Skins. They would lose a lot of money due to a decrease in ratings.
The Washington and New York markets are simply too big to pass up.
