Friday’s “Together We Make Football” segment on TODAY, narrated by NBC Sports Group’s Josh Elliott, tells the story of Philadelphia Eagles fan Colin Delaney, who was diagnosed with Leukemia. Elliott reported the segment live for TODAY between 8 and 9 a.m. ET from the Philadelphia Eagles’ NovaCare Complex.

This week’s “Together We Make Football” segment profiled 15-year-old Colin Delaney, a former middle school fullback, who after being diagnosed with Leukemia had to watch his team from the sidelines. Colin attended the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House (RMH) camp, where he met camp counselor Andre Sabellette, a cancer survivor and former RMH resident. Andre not only mentored him throughout camp, but encouraged him to keep his passion for the game he loves.

Last week, Andre took Colin and some friends to the Philadelphia Eagles’ NovaCare Complex to play a flag football game. Before the game kicked off, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Nick Foles made a surprise appearance, resulting in an unforgettable game.

Eli Manning and the New York Giants (3-2) travel to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia to face Foles, McCoy and their first-place NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) Sunday night on Sunday Night Football on NBC. Pre-game coverage begins with Football Night In America at 7 p.m. following NBC Nightly News.

Former United States District Judge Barbara S. Jones has been appointed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to hear and decide the appeal filed by the NFL Players Association on behalf of Ray Rice.

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, Commissioner Goodell is obligated to consult with NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith before appointing an appeal officer. The NFL and NFLPA collaborated on the selection and the union agreed to the appointment of Judge Jones. Rice was suspended indefinitely by Commissioner Goodell on September 8 for his violation of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy involving domestic violence.

Judge Jones served in the Southern District of New York from 1996 to 2013. Prior to her appointment to the bench by President Bill Clinton, she served as an attorney in the Department of Justice, an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York and Chief Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan. Judge Jones is currently a partner in the law firm of Zuckerman Spaeder.

“We are grateful to Judge Jones for taking on this role,” said Commissioner Goodell. “She will have our full cooperation as she hears and decides this appeal.”

The FOX national telecast (mostly Eagles-49ers) topped the charts for the week (September 22-28) with 25.8 million average viewers followed by Saints-Cowboys on NBC’s Sunday Night Football drawing 22.7 million average viewers.

The NFL uses “flexible scheduling” to ensure quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots and to give teams a chance to play their way onto primetime and into the late-afternoon 4:25 p.m. Eastern time slot on CBS or FOX.

For the first time, flexible scheduling may be applied in Weeks 5-10. During that period, flexible scheduling can be used in no more than two weeks by shifting a Sunday afternoon game into primetime and moving the Sunday night game to an afternoon start time.

Also, for the first time, a select number of games are being “cross-flexed,” moving between CBS and FOX to bring potentially under-distributed games to wider audiences.

The NFL will continue to use flexible scheduling on Sundays in Weeks 11-17. For each flexible scheduling week with the exception of Week 17, the NFL announces the start times of games on Sundays no later than 12 days prior to that weekend.  To ensure a Sunday night game and doubleheader games with playoff implications in Week 17, flexible scheduling decisions for that Sunday can be made on six days notice.
