BOSTON (CBS) — Sunday’s Patriots-Bills game has been flexed to a 4:25 p.m. start.

The Patriots will now play at the same time as the Broncos-Raiders game. With a Patriots win and a Broncos loss, New England would jump to the top seed in the AFC.

The 1 p.m. Ravens-Bengals game will have some meaning for the Patriots. With a Bengals win and a Patriots loss, New England would fall back into the three-seed in the AFC and lose the first-round bye. Should the Patriots lose and the Bengals and Colts (who host the 4-11 Jaguars at 1 p.m.) both win, the Patriots would fall back to the four-seed in the AFC.

The Patriots clinched the AFC East on Sunday after the Dolphins lost to the Bills.

Pats-Bills was one of several games the NFL flexed in the final weekend of the regular season. The Buccaneers-Saints game was also moved to 4:25 p.m., and Packers-Bears (which will decide the NFC North) was moved from an 8:30 p.m. start to 4:25 p.m. as well.

The Eagles-Cowboys game was moved to prime time on Sunday, as the winner will claim the NFC East.

Pregame coverage begins on WBZ-TV at 11:30 a.m. with Patriots GameDay, and at 1:30 p.m. on The Sports Hub. Full postgame shows will follow the game, with Patriots 5th Quarter airing on myTV38.
