NEW YORK (AP) The Dallas Cowboys-Washington Redskins game that will decide the NFC East is moving to prime time.

The NFL says that Dallas' matchup with rival Washington on Dec. 30 would be on NBC's ``Sunday Night Football.''

Starting in Week 11, the league's flexible scheduling policy allows it to move a more appealing game to Sunday night. This is the second time this season a switch has been made.

The Cowboys are 8-7 heading into their trip to Washington, which beat the Cowboys 38-31 on Thanksgiving. The Redskins are 9-6.

Another matchup with playoff implications, Packers-Vikings, shifts to 4:25 p.m. EST on Fox.
