Chiefs-Broncos, It’s that special time of year again — flex time. The NFL announced Friday that it’s moving the Week 11 tilt between the Kansas City Chiefs and hometown Denver Broncos from 4:05 p.m. ET into the prized “Sunday Night Football” slot at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
The game originally slated for “SNF,” the Green Bay Packers at New York Giants, now shifts to 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox, while the San Diego Chargers at Miami Dolphins matchup will air at 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS.
The league has the option to shift teams into both prime-time and late-afternoon starts from Weeks 11 through 17, and this first switch is a winner.
Instead of laying eyes on a downtrodden Giants squad, viewers have been handed a gem out of the AFC West, pitting Peyton Manning’s high-octane Broncos attack against the sack-happy defense of the Chiefs.
