Patriots' Dec. 4 Game Against Indianapolis Moved To 1 p.m.

The New England Patriots' Dec. 4 game against the rival Indianapolis Colts has been moved to 1 p.m. The game was originally scheduled to be played in primetime, but the matchup has become less palatable to a national audience due to the woeful season the 0-9 Colts have been having in the absence of injured quarterback Peyton Manning.

No announcement has been made as to the Sunday Night Football replacement for the Colts-Pats game, a decision the NFL will make by Nov. 22. Meanwhile, this Sunday's game against the New York Jets will be the Patriots' only Sunday night game of the season.

Sunday's contest will certainly fit its primetime billing, given the Patriots' ongoing rivalry with the Jets and the fact that the two teams are part of a three-way tie for first place in the AFC East division, tied with the Buffalo Bills at 5-3. The Patriots beat the Jets at home, 30-21, in Week 5.
