Chiefs, Broncos Week 11 Matchup Flexed To Sunday Night Football

The Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos will meet for AFC bragging rights on November 17th and they will do it in front of a National Audience.

The game, set to take place in Denver, was originally scheduled as an afternoon game but the NFL has decided to move it into primetime as part of its flex scheduling policy.

This is good news as the game was originally scheduled to be on CBS. Just a few weeks ago, CBS exercised a “protection” rule that allowed them to prevent the NFL from taking the game away from them. However, it appears as though CBS has had a change of heart and has voluntarily released the game to the national audience.

 

 

 

 

Should the Chiefs win this weekend in Buffalo and Denver win next weekend in San Diego while the Chiefs are on their BYE Week, the two division rivals will meet in primetime with first place in the AFC West on the line.

The Chiefs would have a chance to take a two-game lead on the Broncos should they enter the game undefeated while the Broncos would be able to draw even with KC.

Going to Denver and beating the Broncos in front of a national audience would certainly enable the Chiefs to silence most of their doubters. A win would also likely cement KC as the favorites to win the AFC.

KC and Denver will meet again in Kansas City, however that game is still protected by CBS.

 

What do you think, Addicts? Can the Chiefs earn some national respect by downing the Donks in primetime?
