NEW YORK - The Lions and Saints are moving to prime time.

The Dec. 4 game between Detroit and New Orleans will be played on "Sunday Night Football" on NBC.

The Colts-Patriots matchup was originally in that slot, but the NFL had previously announced that
it was shifting to earlier in the day under the league's flexible scheduling policy.

On Monday, the NFL said that the meeting between two NFC playoff contenders would take its place.

Also in Week 13, Ravens-Browns moves to 4:05 p.m. EST on CBS, while Broncos-Vikings shifts to 1 p.m. on Fox.

The NFL can use flex scheduling to ensure meaningful matchups Sunday night starting in Week 10.
