Cowboys-Redskins Week 17 matchup flexed to Sunday night

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

The schedule for Week 17 has been released, and the Cowboys-Redskins game has been moved to the Sunday night game at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.

Meanwhile, the Dolphins-Patriots contest moves from 1 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. on CBS, while the Packers-Vikings games has been shifted from 1 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. on Fox.

The reason the Miami-New England matchup was moved, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, was so that the AFC playoff seeds could not be locked in by the 1 p.m. results.

And if any of three previous paragraphs annoy you in any way, it always could be worse.
