It isn’t Sunday night, but it is a prime spot for the the Chiefs-Broncos showdown part two.
Thus sayeth the Kansas City Star:
The NFL announced Tuesday that it was moving the start time of the Chiefs’ Dec. 1 home game against the Denver Broncos from noon to 3:25 p.m. on CBS.
The undefeated Chiefs’ rise from obscurity this season has significantly driven up interest in their two games against the high-powered Broncos, 8-1. The first ― Sunday’s much-anticipated showdown in Denver ― was recently moved from 3:05 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. so it can be shown in primetime on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
This marks the third Chiefs game to be moved this season, the first being a three hour pushback for the Houston game and the second being the Broncos game at Denver being flexed to Sunday Night Football.
There is a still a chance Kansas City could see another game or two moved to a later time slot. Indianapolis is scheduled to visit Kansas City in December, and that game may one NBC wants to air on Sunday Night Football. This would especially be the case if the Chiefs are somehow still undefeated. But even if the Chiefs are not undefeated, that game should carry a great deal of significance for the playoffs.
