By Kevin Kelley -

The 2021 NFL schedule has undergone a few changes for Week 13 and Week 15, the league announced on Tuesday.

The Week 13 (Sunday, Dec. 5) Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs game, previously scheduled for 1:00pm ET on CBS, has been flexed to Sunday Night Football at 8:20pm ET on NBC.

As a result, the previously scheduled Sunday Night Football game, San Francisco at Seattle, has been moved to 4:25pm ET on CBS. Two other games have also changed times and/or networks. Below are four game changes for Week 13:

  • The Denver at Kansas City game moves to 8:20pm ET on NBC.
  • The San Francisco at Seattle game moves to 4:25pm ET on CBS.
  • The LA Chargers at Cincinnati game remains at 1:00pm  ET but moves to CBS.
  • The Jacksonville at LA Rams game moves to 4:05pm and shifts to FOX.

For Week 15 (Saturday, Dec. 18-Sunday, Dec. 19), the two Saturday games on the NFL Network have been selected, with the remaining three games designated for Sunday:

Saturday, Dec. 18

  • The Las Vegas at Cleveland game will be played at 4:30pm ET on NFL Network.
