Two NFL games on the schedule for the week of Nov. 17, 2013 (Week 11) have been moved in accordance with the league’s flexible scheduling rules.
Kansas City at Denver, which was originally scheduled for 4:05pm ET on CBS, has been moved to the Sunday Night Football slot at 8:30pm ET on NBC.
The Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos are currently 7-1 overall and 1-0 in the AFC West. Kansas City (8-0, 1-0 AFC West) is the NFL’s only remaining undefeated team. The move puts two of the league’s best teams in a prime-time intra-division match-up.
Green Bay at the New York Giants was originally scheduled for Sunday Night Football on Nov. 17, but it has been moved to 4:25pm on FOX.
The Packers are having a good season so far at 5-2, but the Giants (2-6) have been disappointing.
The third game changed was San Diego at Miami. Originally slated for 1pm ET on CBS, it has been moved to 4:05pm ET on CBS.
Back in 2006, the NFL implemented flexible scheduling for Sunday games in Weeks 10-15 and Week 17 to ensure quality match-ups. Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday Night Football, with the night game being moved to the afternoon.
