As is the case with this weekend’s matchup between the Broncos and Jets in New York, the Broncos contest against the Panthers in Carolina has been moved from its originally scheduled 1:00 p.m. EST to 4:15 p.m. EST.
The purpose for “flexible scheduling” is to ensure quality matchups in all the afternoon and primetime slots, and it allows teams to essentially play their way into the premium time slots on television.
The Pittsburgh Steelers contest at the Baltimore Ravens was also flexed to the 4:15 p.m. time slot.
The Broncos-Panthers game will still air on CBS.
