The Vikings’ game against the New York Giants on Dec. 27 at TCF Bank Stadium will be flexed from a noon start to a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
The Giants’ 31-24 victory in Miami on Monday night caused the move by the NFL, which announced earlier in the day the game would be changed with a New York victory.
The Vikings-Giants game in Week 16 will go from a Fox (Ch. 9) to Sunday Night Football on NBC (Ch. 11), replacing a scheduled Baltimore-Pittsburgh matchup that will now move to an afternoon start.
Miami’s loss on Monday eliminated the Dolphins from the playoffs and clinched the AFC East for New England.
The Giants (6-7) are in a three-way tie for the NFC East lead with Washington and Philadelphia.
The Vikings (8-5) play Chicago on Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium. That game will be a noon start.
