NFL moves Chiefs’ Nov. 17 game at Denver to primetime

The NFL announced Friday that kickoff for the Chiefs’ game at Denver on Nov. 17 will be moved from late afternoon to 7:30 p.m. Central time for NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”

The originally scheduled Green Bay at New York Giants game on NBC has been switched from Sunday night to 3:25 p.m. on Fox.

Originally, CBS had protected the two Chiefs-Broncos games from being moved to NBC’s Sunday night telecast, but CBS later decided to give up the first game between the Chiefs, 8-0, and Broncos, 7-1, who have the best records in the AFC.

“After discussions with the NFL, we made a one-time accommodation so the game can be seen by a national audience we could not provide during our regionalized single-header weekend,” said a CBS spokesperson.

The Broncos-Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium on Dec. 1 is currently scheduled for a noon kickoff on CBS, but it could get moved to 3:25 p.m. in place of New England-Houston.
