While the start times for all "Sunday Night Football" games in 2020 will go unchanged, the matchups might be tweaked, according to Sportingnews.
The NFL has a flex scheduling procedure that allows for "quality matchups on Sunday night in those weeks and give surprise teams a chance to play their way onto primetime." Here are the key rules for flex scheduling:
— Begins Sunday of Week 5 and in effect during Weeks 5-17
— Up to two games may be flexed into Sunday night between Weeks 5-10
— Only Sunday afternoon games are subject to being moved into the Sunday night window
— The game that has been tentatively scheduled for Sunday night during flex weeks will be listed at 8:15 p.m. ET
— The announcement will come no later than 12 days prior to the game
While the 2020/21 campaign got off to an unusual start in so many respects, we're now well over halfway to the playoffs and in the midst of another scintillating season with even more twists and turns to come as the battle for wild card places and bye weeks heats up, Techradar reported.
Reigning Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs and star QB Pat Mahomes are favorites to repeat this February, boasting a 10-1 record and showing off their grit yet again last week in a dramatic 27-24 victory over Tom Brady and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
NFL LIVE STREAM 2020/21
|The NFL playoff races are heating up as we enter the month of December.|
The new NFL season kicked off back in September, with the regular season concluding on January 3, 2021 after which it's three rounds of playoff action and then the biggest game in world sports: the Super Bowl, with Super Bowl LV taking place Sunday, February 7 next year.
Yes, despite the postponements and empty stadiums, no one deny that the NFL has been back with a bang on the field, and we've been treated to all the gravity-defying touchdown catches, bone-crunching hits, and ice-cold Bill Belichick stares that America's game is famous for.
The undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers (11-0) are considered the main threat to an early-stage KC dynasty being established next February, with the Men of Steel most recently surviving the undermanned Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday afternoon for a 19-14 win.
Over in the NFC, the big pre-season talking point was Brady and his new team, the Bucs. With a 7-4 record, there's no denying the impact TB12 has made Tampa - but they've stumbled of late, and are now likely looking at a wild card route into the playoffs. Assuming they make it the postseason though, is anyone really going to bet against the GOAT leading his team on a deep, deep run?
Throw into the mix a truly stellar rookie class headlined by new Kansas City running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire and stud Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb and you know you're witnessing a season for the ages.

10 things we learned from Week 13 of the 2020 NFL season
USA Today listed some notable things that we learned from Week 13 of the 2020 NFL season:
1. Yes, the playoff race is starting to heat up for what is expected to be the league's first 14-team postseason field ... pandemic permitting. But Sunday was a reminder that one of the most compelling subplots this December will be the "battle" for the top pick of the 2021 draft – a selection that's expected to net Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence. It appears the winless Jets and almost-as-hapless Jaguars will vie for that spot down the stretch ... as each did in compelling fashion during Sunday's 1 p.m. window. Both clubs held second-half leads before managing to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
2. The Lawrence Derby seemed to overshadow modest playoff developments, the most notable being the surging Vikings bypassing the sagging Cardinals for the NFC's third and final wild-card spot.
3. But congrats to the Saints, the first team in 2020 to clinch a playoff berth.
4. Brees' replacement, Taysom Hill, threw his first TD passes since 2016 ... when he was a senior at BYU. Hill's 232 passing yards Sunday were just shy of his NFL career high from two weeks ago – when he posted 233 ... also against Atlanta. In 49 games as a pro, those represent the only times Hill has surpassed 100 yards through the air.
5. Props to Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who continues to bleed oxygen from what seems an airtight, first-ballot Hall of Fame résumé. He became the fastest player to throw 400 career TD passes, needing 12 fewer games (193) than Brees.
6. Starting to feel like what once felt like a robust MVP race is boiling down to Rodgers and Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, especially during a weekend when Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, Cardinals QB Kyler Murray and Titans RB Derrick Henry were all MIA.
7. Mahomes improved his TD-to-INT ratio to what would be a single-season record 31-to-2 as Kansas City locked up the AFC's first playoff spot with a largely unimpressive 22-16 defeat of Denver.
8. The Chiefs, Steelers, Saints and Packers might all be division champions by this point next week.
9. Rams coach Sean McVay is 7-0 against the Cardinals.
10. The Patriots' Cam Newton claimed his own small slice of history. The man with more rushing TDs (69) than any quarterback ever also became the first to score at least two on the ground in four different games in one season.
