The Eagles-Cowboys game on Dec. 29 has been moved to 8:30 p.m., meaning the de facto NFC East championship game will be played in primetime for a national audience.
The Cowboys’ 24-23 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday meant next week’s game will determine the division. It is the third consecutive season the Cowboys will play for the division title in Week 17, with the Eagles marking the third different NFC East opponent they faced.
It will be the Eagles’ second consecutive Sunday Night Football game on NBC, and their fourth primetime game this season.
The Eagles lost, 17-3, when the two teams met on Oct. 20.
