The NFL announced that the Week 13 Sunday Night Football game between the Patriots and Colts will be moved to 1:00 p.m. ET. It will air on CBS.

The game that will be moved into NBC's Sunday night slot will be announced no later than Nov. 22.

The league also flexed the Titans-Falcons game in Week 11 to 4:15 p.m. ET. The Eagles-Giants game will remain the Sunday nighter.

The way we see it

There are several appealing Week 13 games that could be flexed into the Sunday Night slot, including Bengals at Steelers and Lions at Saints. The biggest game of the day, Packers at Giants, was one of five games that FOX protected, meaning NBC and the NFL cannot move it into primetime.
