Broncos-Eagles game pushed back for Week 16

The Week 16 schedule was finalized on Monday with the originally scheduled Dallas-Washington Sunday night game on NBC remaining in place.

The game could have major playoff implications for the Cowboys, who are 8-5 before playing at the undefeated Saints on Saturday (on NFL Network). The Redskins are 4-9.

Kickoff for the Denver at Philadelphia game on Sunday, Dec. 27 moves from 1 p.m. ET to 4:15 p.m. ET on CBS.

The NFL utilizes "flexible scheduling" on Sundays in Weeks 11-17. Flexible scheduling ensures 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 p.m. 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.
