The Broncos and Chiefs have a much-anticipated matchup coming on Sunday night. It was so good that it got flexed into Sunday night's primetime game.

They've also got a very spicy rematch coming in Week 13. It was a good enough matchup, in fact, that it was flexed to the 4:25 p.m. ET game on CBS.

Moving out of that spot are the Texans and Patriots, a previously awesome playoffs rematch that looks pretty "meh" now that the Texans are terrible. (Don't get me wrong: Case Keenum and Andre Johnson are fun to watch, but Chiefs-Broncos has much bigger implications.)

It's possible that Chiefs-Broncos could be flexed into the Sunday night game again, but as of right now that hasn't changed.

Currently Giants-Redskins is locked into that spot, although the NFL could announce a change as late as Tuesday, November 19.

There's lots of politics that goes into these changes (all of it well above my pay grade) and you can guess that the folks at the mothership don't want to give up a Peyton Manning rematch against Kansas City, especially one that could be for the rights to homefield advantage in the AFC and an AFC West crown.
