Likely 2017 NFL TV schedules for New York market

The NFL schedule was released on Thursday night, and here’s a look at the likely schedule for the New York market.
A couple interesting points: the Jets and Giants are scheduled to play at the same time on five occasions (Sept. 24, Oct. 1 and 8, Dec. 10 and 31) – this is rather unusual since the NFL tries to keep the two teams apart in the same time window. Also, the New York market will be “cheated” of five doubleheader games due to the antiquated NFL blackout rules, which calls for no TV game opposite a Jets or Giants home game.
Hopefully, the NFL will utilize its flex scheduling to add a couple good match-ups into the late Sunday afternoon time slots because the current slate is not chock full of top match-ups, especially with the woeful California-based teams.
