Over the past few days, CBS and NBC have been fighting over which will be able to air the Sunday Night Football week 15 match up. A decision on whether the New England Patriots at the Denver Broncos game on Dec. 18 will be moved to prime-time.

The final decision will be made today after the NFL extended their Dec. 6 deadline. Here is the statement issued by the league on Tuesday evening. -

"Due to NFL Committee Meetings in New York today, the Week 15 flexible schedule announcement will be released tomorrow (Wednesday, December 7). All of the clubs under consideration to have Week 15 games flexed have informed our office that they are interested in the strongest schedule for our fans and network partners."

The game initially was scheduled to be shown on CBS, with kickoff at 2:15 p.m, but a change to Sunday night would mean a start at 6:20 p.m. I was surprised when the league extended their 13 day in advance deadline, but strange things happen when Tim Tebow is involved. I'll be sure to post an update when a final decision has been made official.
