It’s a phrase that NFL team employees might use later in the season — “We’ve been flexed.”
And now everyone at Dove Valley can say it.
As part of the NFL’s flex scheduling system, the Broncos’ Week 13 contest against the New York Jets at the Meadowlands has been moved back to one of the late afternoon slots.
Instead of kickoff taking place at 1:00 p.m. EST, it will now take place at 4:15 p.m. EST.
The game will still be broadcast on CBS as originally scheduled — only the time changes.
The NFL utilizes “flexible scheduling” on Sundays in Weeks 11-17. It’s designed to ensure quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots in those weeks and give teams a chance to play their way onto primetime and into the late-afternoon 4:15 PM ET time slot on CBS and FOX.
So adjust your calendars Broncos Country, the orange and blue will now play at a later time with an even bigger T.V. audience.
