Chiefs at Chargers moved to Sunday night

The Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers game on Sunday, December 17 will be played at 8:15 PM ET on NBC, the NFL announced today.

For the second time this year the Chargers have been moved into primetime. The Bolts played Denver on Sunday night November 19 and bear the Broncos on their home turf, 35-27.

The NFL is implementing for the first time this year a "flexible scheduling" element on Sundays in Weeks 10-15 and in Week 17. Flexible scheduling will ensure 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.

The flex schedule games for this Sunday (Dec. 10) are New Orleans at Dallas on NBC at 8:15 PM ET and Buffalo at New York Jets on CBS at 4:15 PM ET.
