NEW YORK (AP) — The Vikings-Packers game at Green Bay that will decide the NFC North title has been moved to Sunday night.

Through its flex scheduling option, the NFL placed that game in prime time, with the winner taking the division crown.

Ten games are set for a 1 p.m. EST kickoff, with the New York Jets at Buffalo, and Pittsburgh at Cleveland involving a potential AFC wild card. Houston, which will win the AFC South by beating Jacksonville at home, also is at 1 o'clock.

Among the five 4:25 p.m. EST matchups are Oakland at Kansas City, and San Diego at Denver, which will play a role in deciding the AFC West title. Seattle at Arizona, and Tampa Bay at Carolina — the Cardinals and Panthers are chasing the top overall NFC seed — also will be at 4:25.
