    Frank Heinz,

    The Dallas-Washington matchup Dec. 27 will remain the NFL's Sunday night game even though NBC had the option to choose another one.

    The league said Monday that the Denver-Philadelphia game that day will start at 3:15 p.m. instead of noon.

    The league's flexible scheduling policy allows it to change the Sunday night game to select a better matchup starting in Week 11.

    The game could have major playoff implications for the Cowboys, who are 8-5 before playing at the undefeated Saints on Saturday. The Redskins are 4-9.
