* Start time may shift due to NFL flexible scheduling, which will be used in Weeks 11-17 this season.
It may also be applied in Weeks 5-10, but can be used in no more than two weeks during that period.
+ For the first time, a select number of games are being “cross-flexed” by the NFL, moving between
CBS and FOX to bring potentially under-distributed games to wider audiences.
