The National Football League has announced plans to alter the start time of the New England Patriots Miami Dolphins showdown at Land Shark Stadium on December 6th, moving the contest up from its original 8:20 PM slot to 1:00 PM ET. The Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals will then take over the prime time position Sunday night. The Vikings (NFC North) and Cardinals (NFC West) both sit atop their respective divisions.
The switch was created for the NFL to exercise its flexible scheduling with the purpose of “ensuring quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots.” The policy can be activated for each Sunday following Week 11 if necessary.
The Pats Dolphins game could very well wrap up the AFC East for New England. They are currently looking ahead to their tough Week 12 contest against the New Orleans Saints Monday, November 30th. Miami trails the Patriots in the Division by two going into their next game vs the 3-7 Buffalo Bills.
