The AFC West battle between the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs and once-beaten Broncos on Nov. 17 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium has been "flexed" to prime time. Denver will now play at 6:30 p.m. and be televised on KUSA-9. It was originally scheduled at 2:05 p.m. on KCNC-4. "We were informed by the league that this change was made to ensure the largest possible television audience would see the Broncos' game against the Chiefs," Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth told The Denver Post. The change means the Broncos will play back-to-back games on NBC. The Broncos play at New England on Nov. 24 in a featured matchup involving quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Teams are allowed a maximum six games in prime time: NBC's "Sunday Night Football," ESPN's "Monday Night Football" and the NFL Network's "Thursday Night Football. The added Chiefs game puts Denver at its maximum.
