NEW YORK (AP) _ The Chiefs-Broncos game in Week 11 is moving to prime time.

The NFL said Friday that Kansas City's matchup with Denver on Nov. 17 would be on NBC's ``Sunday Night Football.''

The Green Bay Packers and New York Giants were originally in that slot, but were moved to 4:25 p.m. EST on Fox. Also, the Chargers-Dolphins game was moved to 4:05 p.m. on CBS.

Starting in Week 11, the league's flexible scheduling policy allows it to move a more appealing game to Sunday night.

``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.''

The Chiefs, 8-0 and the NFL's last unbeaten team, visit Buffalo this week. The Broncos (7-1) are off.
