Patriots-Colts flexed to 1 p.m.

The Patriots' home game against the Colts on Dec. 4 has been flexed from prime-time to 1 p.m. ET, a decision that figures to be welcomed by the team's fans.

At the start of the season, a Patriots-Colts game in prime-time seemed like a slam dunk. But the Colts are winless without injured quarterback Peyton Manning. No announcement was made on which game will replace Patriots-Colts, with a final decision to be made by Nov. 22.

At this time, that makes the Patriots-Jets game this week the team's only Sunday night game of the season.
