Nov. 1, 2013 at 8:59 PM

NEW YORK, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- The Nov. 17 game between Kansas City and Denver will be moved to an evening kickoff, the NFL announced Friday.

Beginning that week, the league's television contract creates the opportunity for Sunday night games scheduled to be shown on NBC-TV to be replaced by a contest likely to draw a larger audience.

The game originally scheduled for that evening had been one between the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants.

Instead, that contest will be shown beginning at 4:25 p.m. EDT on Fox while the Chiefs-Broncos contest will kick off at 8:30 p.m.

Kansas City is the only unbeaten team remaining in the NFL and Denver is one game behind the Chiefs in the race for the AFC West title. The Nov. 17 game, which will be played in Denver, will be the first of two between those teams in the regular season.

Denver will travel to Kansas City two weeks later.
