I think the NFL game of the year.

December 11, 2016 - Arizona vs. Miami

The matchup many have been waiting for and a possible Super Bowl preview.

Their last game in Arizona was arguably the best game of the 2012 season.

These have the best offenses in football and a great and very good defense.  This will probably be the Sunday night flex game and both teams could be undefeated.

Yes, Chicago might get World Series viewers because it is a regional sport, but the rest of the country will yawn, whereas December 11, 2016, they'll be watching in tens of millions of viewers.

These two teams had great drafts and especially if Miami wins the Super Bowl, that is bigger news than a red line World Series.

The NFL is king and I know more long suffering Dolfans than anyone.

Miami is arguably America's team.

I see more Miami gear in Illinois, California, Indiana than those states local teams.  Dolfans are everywhere.

That game was boring and not even close to the best game of the season that year.....matter of fact if you look at several articles listing the top 20 games of 2012 that game doesnt even rank in the top 20....Peyton Manning was down 24-0 to the Chargers and won that year... you also had the "Catch/No Catch" GB vs Seattle game.... Joe Flacco pulled off a miracle in the playoff to beat Denver on a bomb to Jacoby Jones....The Lions scored two Td's vs the Titans in the last 18 seconds to put the game into overtime only to lose on a FG...and the Superbowl that year was outstanding between Baltimore and San Fran

Could you please explain how predictions last three years and why you would predict the same thing two years in a row then?Huh I know if I bet on a team to win the championship I dont get a 3 year grace period  screwy screwy screwy screwy screwy bang head bang head bang head bang head bang head bang head bang head bang head bang head

"arguably"  ANY game is the best of the season if you say it is.  doh The regular season football game wouldn't do what a compelling world series game would, but even if the Cubs made the WS, it would be the highest rated ever, and still wouldn't compare to a SB game. One game vs. a series is a non entity.

I said the window has closed and I am making the prediction again.  Anything less than a Super Bowl appearance for Arizona is an underachievement.

Maybe if the AL had Boston or White Sox, I still can't see a World Series game getting 20 million viewers.  There are not many baseball fans out there.

Women from South America like futbol and football much more than baseball.

A compelling SNF game gets 20 million minimum.
