Chiefs home game against Broncos flexed to Sunday night

Sports

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs are on a winning streak, and apparently the NFL noticed.

The league announced Tuesday afternoon that the Chiefs’ home game against the Denver Broncos on Dec. 5 has been flexed to Sunday night. Instead of a noon kickoff the game is now scheduled to begin at 7:20 p.m.

The San Francisco 49ers game against the Seattle Seahawks has been moved from Sunday evening to a 3:25 p.m. kickoff.

The NFL also announced schedule changes for Week 15, but it doesn’t impact Kansas City. In Week 15, the Chiefs play the Los Angeles Chargers at 7:20 p.m. for Thursday Night Football on FOX4.

The Chiefs are currently coming off a four-game winning streak after defeating the Dallas Cowboys 19-9. Now they’re heading into their bye for Week 12 of the NFL season.

“Everything’s right in front of us,” QB Patrick Mahomes said Sunday. “We can be better, especially offensively, defense can continue to get better and better each and every week. To be where we started to where we’re at now and still not even playing our best football, I would take that every time.”
