The NFL had until Tuesday night to make a flex decision on the Denver Broncos vs. Minnesota Vikings game set for Sunday Night Football in Week 11. The league was proactive, making a decision last night instead.
The NFL has informed the Broncos that the game will remain a SNF matchup, the team confirmed on Sunday evening. So the club will now play in prime time in consecutive weeks.
First, Denver will go on the road to face the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football in Week 10 (Nov. 13). After that, the Broncos will host the Vikings on Sunday Night Football in Week 11 (Nov. 19).
Denver is 3-5 but the team is coming off consecutive victories (including a 24-9 upset win over the Kansas City Chiefs) followed by a Week 9 bye. Meanwhile, the Vikings (5-4) are suddenly more intriguing after quarterback Josh Dobbs arrived via trade on Tuesday and then led them a 31-28 win on Sunday.
Bring on the big lights.
