The NFL has announced that the New England Patriots' Week 17 matchup versus the Buffalo Bills has been flexed from 1 PM to 4:25 PM EST. The game will still air on CBS, but this likely means it is their premiere game of the week.

The one good thing about this is that the Patriots will (mostly) know their playoff destiny. The only other game that influences the Patriots' playoff positioning is Denver/Oakland, which kicks off at the same time.
