Kickoff for Week 13 Broncos @ Chiefs pushed back

As had been expected, the Broncos' Week 13 trip to Arrowhead will include a later kickoff time than originally scheduled.

Like most games in Kansas City, the rematch with the Chiefs was supposed to kick off at 1pm ET.

Instead, the game will start at 4:25pm ET, allowing it to be seen by a wider audience.

CBS figures to have requested/demanded this shift in consideration for this Sunday's game being flexed to NBC for the night broadcast.

This means Denver's Week 16 trip to Houston will be their only 1pm ET kickoff of the entire season, unless that also gets flexed.

CBS currently has only Steelers/Packers and Raiders/Chargers in the later slot that week, although Colts/Chiefs is another prime 1pm ET kickoff and candidate to be pushed back.
