The showdown between two of the league’s best teams has been shifted to prime time.

The Nov. 17 game in Denver between the 7-1 Broncos and the 8-0 Kansas City Chiefs has been flexed to a 6:30 p.m. kickoff by NBC. The game was originally scheduled to begin at 2:25 p.m.

"We had originally protected the Kansas City-Denver game for Week 11," CBS Sports said in a statement. "After discussions with the NFL we made a one-time accommodation so that the game can be seen by a national audience, which we could not provide during our regionalized singleheader weekend."

In a related switch, the Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants, which were originally scheduled as the night game, will kick off at 2:25 p.m.

The Broncos and Chiefs will play again two weeks after their first meeting, Dec. 1 in Kansas City.

Denver, which has a bye this week, will face the San Diego Chargers on Nov. 10, while the Kansas City will have its bye that week.

Kansas City, the NFL's lone remaining unbeaten team in Andy Reid's first season as coach, plays the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
