Just In: NFL Flexes Broncos’ Week 13 Game at Texans…

The Denver Broncos announced Tuesday that its Week 13 road tilt against the Houston Texans has been flexed to 11 a.m. MT. The game was previously scheduled to kick off at 2:05 p.m. MT on CBS.

Neither the team nor the NFL explained the decision to move the start time, though it’s speculated that the league wanted a more compelling matchup in the early window, which features a slew of potential snoozers: Colts-Titans, Chargers-Patriots, and Cardinals-Steelers.

This will be only the tenth-ever meeting between Denver and Houston — the former holding a 6-3 series lead — and the second such battle in as many seasons. The clubs met in Week 2 of 2022; the Broncos won, 16-9, in what’s best remembered as The Play Clock Game.

The 2023 edition pits a 5-5 Denver squad currently riding a four-game winning streak versus an upstart 6-4 Texans outfit led by rookie quarterback CJ Stroud, the overwhelming favorite for Offensive Rookie of the Year

Before that takes place, however, the Broncos get a Week 11 home affair with the Cleveland Browns while Houston hosts the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“There’s a lot more great teams ahead of us,” quarterback Russell Wilson said after Sunday’s victory over Minnesota. “In terms of next week, we play a really great team in Cleveland and we’re going to enjoy this thing together.”
