Monday, November 14, 2011
NEW YORK (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans-Atlanta Falcons game on CBS will get a later start Sunday.
It's been moved to a 4:15 p.m. EST start instead of 1 p.m. It's part of the NFL's flexible scheduling option announced Monday.
The Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs game Nov. 27, with an 8:20 p.m. start, will be played as scheduled.
The Steelers (7-3) moved back into first place in the AFC North after a 24-17 win Sunday over the Cincinnati Bengals and a loss by Baltimore at Seattle.
The NFL will use flexible scheduling on Sundays in Weeks 10-15 and 17 to highlight quality matchups in Sunday 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.
