For the second year in a row, the game at MetLife Stadium between the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers was supposed to be played on NBC's Sunday Night Football during Week 11, which is November 17.
On Friday, the league decided to switch what game would be broadcasted on NBC that night as the Giants-Packers game was moved out of that time slot and instead, the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs will be shown instead. The game between the Giants and Packers will instead be played at 4:25 p.m. on that Sunday afternoon.
Dan Graziano of ESPN New York mentioned that the game between the Broncos and Chiefs was originally protected by CBS from being switched to NBC in the flex scheduling that the league does, but the league requested that NBC take the Broncos and Chiefs that night, although no word on what CBS got as compensation for allowing the game to be removed from their broadcast. FOX will get the game between the Giants and Packers since it's two NFC teams.
The Giants have another Sunday Night Football game scheduled later on in the year for Week 13 against the Washington Redskins and coincidentally enough, the Broncos and Chiefs are again playing on that day too, so it's quite possible that the Giants and Redskins could get their game moved from prime time into an earlier time slot so Denver and Kansas City gets the national spot light for a second time.
