NFL Flexes Chiefs-Broncos To Sunday Night On NBC

The November 10th game between the Chiefs and Broncos in Denver has been shifted from Sunday afternoon to Sunday night.

The announcement was made by the NFL on Friday as part of their flex scheduling format with the television networks.

Reportedly, CBS protected the game between the teams on top of the AFC West several weeks ago, but the NFL convinced the network to give up the telecast. Thus, the league was able to move the game to primetime on NBC. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. CDT.

It will be the first true national telecast of the season for the Chiefs. They played a Thursday night game against Philadelphia, but that game was on the NFL Network and that does not have 100 percent availability around the country for the average fan.

The last time the Chiefs played on Sunday night was November 27, 2011, when they lost to Pittsburgh 13-9 at Arrowhead Stadium.

On Sunday nights the Chiefs are 9-5, including losing in 2004 at Denver 34-24.

    This is great for the Chiefs, but horrible for me personally. In England, kickoff will be at 0130 Monday morning. :/

    Remember that problem well. Spent four years in Hawaii where the noon kick off was 6 am. “Tailgating” was coffee and eggs.

    Good thing was last game done around noon and then off to the beach.
