Texans vs. Broncos Week 13 flexed to early game kickoff

The Houston Texans will be able to catch the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers Week 13 showdown after all.

The NFL announced Tuesday the Denver Broncos’ trip to Houston will be flexed from a 3:05 p.m. Central Time kickoff to 12:00 p.m. The league is instead moving the Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the 3:05 window.

The flex wasn’t what Houston fans hoped for. Pigeoning the Texans into the early game window gives the club their first ever season playing in one kickoff window. Even the Dom Capers teams would catch a late afternoon start if facing Peyton Manning or a West Coast team.
