The NFL announced today a scheduling change for Week 10, as well as the teams and times for the Saturday games in Weeks 15 and 16.
In Week 10 (November 11), the Miami Dolphins at Green Bay Packers game will move from 1 PM ET on CBS to 4:25 PM ET on CBS. Additionally, the Arizona Cardinals at Kansas City Chiefs game originally scheduled at 1 PM ET on FOX will be cross-flexed to CBS.
By moving Miami’s game to 4:25 PM, the NFL appears to like Miami’s chances to right the ship. The only other games going on in that time slot are the Los Angeles Chargers at Oakland and Seattle at Los Angeles Rams.
The Jacksonville Jaguars at Miami Dolphins will now be played at 1 PM ET on Sunday, December 23. Previously, the Jaguars vs. Dolphins date had not yet been determined. The Jaguars are off to a rough start this season as well as the Dolphins. Had both teams been on a hot streak, they would have very likely moved this game to Saturday, December 22.
Other schedule changes include:
- On Sunday, November 11, Arizona at Kansas City will now be at 1:00 PM on CBS.
- In Week 15, the two games played on Saturday, December 15, both televised by NFL Network, will feature the Houston Texans at the New York Jets at 4:30 PM ET followed by the Cleveland Browns at the Denver Broncos at 8:20 PM ET.
- In Week 16, the two of four possible matchups on Saturday, December 22 on NFL Network have been determined with the Washington Redskins visiting the Tennessee Titans at 4:30 PM ET followed by the Baltimore Ravens at the Los Angeles Chargers at 8:20 PM ET.
- The New York Giants at the Indianapolis Colts game will be played at 1 PM ET on Sunday, December 23. The game will be televised on CBS or FOX - no decision has yet been made.
