I can't see how they make any more money. All the games are televised and paid for regardless of when they play. It's just a gimmick and yeah, it's a stupid gimmick. Imo amyway.
They are adding another payer. It will add up to more total. That's why they're doing it. It creates competition for their product in the market.

The game would generate more money on MNF than it would on Saturday at 13:00 ET.

So I am on the East Coast and I fucking hate these late night games. The bars around here are closed and I just want to go to sleep.

I'm retired, but when I worked I had to get up the next day and go to work.

I don't want to lose half a night's sleep to watch a football game.

The further East you go, the worse it is to watch sports. I’ve lived in 4 of the 6 time zones. Prove me wrong Super Bowl is first example

Yeah, I'm in Atlantic Canada now and the primetime games don't start until 9:20. No way can I stay up for that.

Yeah why would the NFL want to split up their playoff games schedule in a way that their fans get to see more games and they make more money.
Completely stupid.

The only drawback I can see is having to wait until Monday to see your team play. Not such a big deal.

They’ll probably expand the teams further too. The NFL doesn’t care about players health or fairness. They care about how much money they can squeeze out of the players.

I'm all for it. 3 days of playoff football in a row.

I don't see why so many people are bitching about it. It happens in every other sport during the playoffs, but for football, it is blasphemy for some reason.
