Cowboys-Redskins Week 17 matchup flexed to Sunday night

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.
