Nov. 17 Chiefs-Broncos game moves to NBC's 'Sunday Night Football'by jmaloni
The week 11 Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos game Sunday, Nov. 17, will be played at 8:30 p.m. on NBC's "Sunday Night Football." The Green Bay Packers at New York Giants game will now air at 4:25 p.m. on FOX, and the San Diego Chargers at Miami Dolphins game at 4:05 p.m. on CBS, the NFL announced today.
The NFL uses "flexible scheduling" on Sundays in weeks 11-17. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all NFL Sunday timeslots in those weeks and gives teams a chance to play their way onto primetime and into the late-afternoon 4:25 p.m. time slot on CBS or FOX.
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.
