The game has been moved to a 4:15 p.m. ET start instead of 1 p.m as part of the NFL's flexible scheduling option, it was announced Monday.

The game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 27, with an 8:20 p.m. start on NBC, will be played as scheduled.

The Steelers moved back into first place in the AFC North after a 24-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday and a loss by the Baltimore Ravens in Seattle.

The NFL will use flexible scheduling on Sundays in Weeks 10 through 15 and Week 17 to highlight quality matchups in time slots and give teams a chance to play their way onto prime time and the late-afternoon 4:15 p.m. slot on CBS and FOX.
