Based on the outcome of Sunday Night Football, the Indianapolis Colts’ (10-5) hosted Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-14) has been flexed to 4:25 PM EST—having been initially scheduled for 1:00 PM EST.

The Colts will play at the same scheduled game time (4:25 PM EST) as the Tennessee Titans vs. Houston Texans during the NFL’s season finale.

Needing a win and outside help to get into the playoffs, the Colts will know by their late afternoon kickoff whether any of the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, or Miami Dolphins already lost—as all of those teams have a 1:00 PM EST kickoff, and Indianapolis needs just one of them to lose to secure a potential AFC postseason berth—along with beating Jacksonville.

On the other hand, before their scheduled kickoff, Indianapolis may know whether their playoffs hopes also hinge solely on whether the Tennessee Titans will lose—should all of those aforementioned prospective AFC playoff teams win.
