NEW YORK (AP) — The critical NFC East matchup between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 21 will remain on Sunday night.

The league could have moved another game into the slot under its flexible scheduling policy. But the NFL said Monday it wasn’t making any changes to Week 11, the first week it can switch start times.

The Giants are 6-2 heading into Sunday’s game against the reeling Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles are 5-3 before facing the Washington Redskins on Monday night.
