Chiefs-Broncos on Nov. 17 moves to Sunday night

NEW YORK (AP) — The Chiefs-Broncos game in Week 11 is moving to prime time.

The NFL said Friday that Kansas City's matchup with Denver on Nov. 17 would be on NBC's "Sunday Night Football." The Green Bay Packers and New York Giants were originally in that slot, but were moved to 4:25 p.m. EST on Fox. Also, the Chargers-Dolphins game was moved to 4:05 p.m. on CBS.

Starting in Week 11, the league's flexible scheduling policy allows it to move a more appealing game to Sunday night. "We had originally protected the Kansas City-Denver game for Week 11," CBS Sports said in a statement. "After discussions with the NFL we made a one-time accommodation so that the game can be seen by a national audience, which we could not provide during our regionalized singleheader weekend."

The Chiefs, 8-0 and the NFL's last unbeaten team, visit Buffalo this week. The Broncos (7-1) are off.
