CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The NFL announced on Wednesday that the Week 15 matchup between the Cleveland Browns and New York Giants will now take place in the prime-time spot.
The Dec. 20 game has been “flexed” by the league and will now be played in the 8:20 p.m. Sunday Night Football time slot at MetLife Stadium.
The game was previously scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m.
Both teams are on track for playoff appearances, with the 9-3 Browns currently holding a Wild Card position and in contention for an AFC North lead behind the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The 5-7 Giants are currently in a tie with the Washington Football Team atop the NFC East division.
The move means the Browns will play two prime-time games in consecutive weeks; Cleveland hosts the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football in Week 14.
