Flexible scheduling pushes back Broncos-Jets showdown

National Football League
The Week 13 NFL schedule was finalized and announced on Monday, with the originally scheduled Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Sunday night game on NBC remaining in place.

The only game-time change is the Denver Broncos at New York Jets game on Sunday, Nov. 30 moving from 1 p.m. ET to 4:15 p.m. ET on CBS.

The flex schedule game-time change for this Sunday (Nov. 23) is Carolina at Atlanta on FOX at 4:15 p.m. ET.

The NFL will utilize "flexible scheduling" on Sundays in Weeks 11-17. Flexible scheduling will ensure quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots in those weeks and give teams a chance to play their way onto primetime and into the late-afternoon 4:15 p.m. ET time slot on CBS and FOX.

For each of the flexible scheduling weeks with the exception of Week 17, the NFL will announce 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, the flexible scheduling decision for that Sunday may be made on six days notice.
