The New York Giants got a nod of recognition from the NFL on Wednesday when it was announced that their Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns is being flexed into the prime time Sunday Night Football slot.
That means the game, originally set for 1 p.m. on Dec. 20, will be played that night at 8:20 p.m. and broadcast nationally on NBC.
The Giants, of course, are 5-7, have won four straight games and lead the NFC East by virtue of having a tie-breaker advantage over the Washington Football Team. The Browns are 9-3.
Giants coach Joe Judge downplayed the switch.
“The focus has to always be on what we’re doing right now and the process of getting ready for the Cardinals,” Judge said before Wednesday’s practice. “The fact the game was flexed, to be completely just transparent and honest with you - look, we’ll play whenever.”
The Giants host the 6-6 Arizona Cardinals this weekend.
