Week 14 Flex Scheduling: Raiders-Packers moves to 4:15 PM on CBS on Dec. 11; Giants-Cowboys remains on SNF
The final Week 14 NFL schedule was announced today with the originally scheduled New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys game on NBC’s Sunday Night Football remaining in place. The Oakland Raiders-Green Bay Packers game will move from 1:00 PM ET to 4:15 PM ET on CBS.
Following is the final Week 14 NFL schedule (bold/italics/asterisk indicates time change):
This Sunday (Dec. 4) the Detroit Lions-New Orleans Saints game was moved to 8:20 PM ET on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, the Indianapolis Colts-New England Patriots game to 1:00 PM ET on CBS, the Denver Broncos-Minnesota Vikings game to 1:00 PM ET on FOX, and the Baltimore Ravens-Cleveland Browns game to 4:05 PM ET on CBS.
The NFL utilizes “flexible scheduling” on Sundays in Weeks 10-15, 17. Flexible scheduling ensures 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 PM 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.
