Dolphins at Chargers Week 14 game flexed to Sunday night; Chiefs at Broncos moved to earlier slot

USATSI

A modification has actually been made to the NFL’s regular-season schedule. The Chargers’ Week 14 video game versus the Dolphins has actually been bent to the “Sunday Night Football” slot. In a matching relocation, the Chiefs-Broncos video game in Denver will be moved from 8:20 p.m. ET to a 4:05 ET kickoff. 

The Dolphins’ success, paired with the Broncos’ has a hard time, both most likely played huge functions in the schedule modification. Winners of 5 straight video games, the Dolphins are 8-3 total under first-year head coach Mike McDaniel. The Dolphins have yet to lose this season when Tua Tagovailoa begins and ends up the video game. Miami’s quarterback leads among the league’s most explosive offenses that likewise includes wideouts Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill. Hill, who remains in his very first season in Miami, is 767 backyards far from ending up being the very first receiver to eclipse the 2,000-yard getting barrier. 

While the Dolphins are skyrocketing, the Broncos are bumbling through what will eventually be the franchise’s 8th straight non-playoff season. It’s been a forgettable season for Russell Wilson, who has definitely not had the kind of very first season in Denver that he and Broncos fans had actually expected. A nine-time Pro Bowler in Seattle, Wilson is finishing less than 60% of his passes this season. Denver’s presently 14.3 points per video game is the most affordable overall this late in a season because the 2000 Browns (h/t ESPN). 

The schedule flex has historic significance. The Dolphins-Chargers match will happen almost 40 years after their impressive face-off in the 1982 divisional round of the AFC playoffs. Ahead 24-0, the Chargers fell back prior to rallying to require overtime. The Chargers then dominated in overtime in a video game that ranks amongst the best in league history. 

Miami’s challenger on Week 14 is adept, either. The 6-5 Chargers, fresh off of their last-second win in Arizona, remain in the hunt to make the playoffs. Los Angeles has actually been led by quarterback Justin Herbert and Austin Ekeler. Herbert remains in the middle of another Pro Bowl-quality season. Ekeler, perhaps the league’s most flexible running back, has actually acquired 1,051 overall backyards and 12 goals through 11 video games. 

The group that actually got the brief end of the flex is the Chiefs, who at 9-2 didn’t do anything to warrant losing a prime-time video game.
