Bills vs. Patriots 2013: kickoff moved to 4:25PM ET

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Due to New England's various playoff scenarios, the Buffalo Bills' regular season finale next week has been flexed to a late kickoff.

Late Sunday evening, the NFL announced that next Sunday's regular season finale between the New England Patriots and the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium has been flexed to a 4:25PM ET kickoff.

New England, at 11-4, has already clinched a division crown and a playoff berth. They still have a shot at clinching home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, however, and can do so by beating Buffalo and the Denver Broncos (who kick off in Oakland at 4:25, as well) losing. The Patriots can also clinch the No. 2 seed in the conference with a win, or with losses or ties by both the Cincinnati Bengals (1PM versus Baltimore) and Indianapolis Colts (1PM versus Jacksonville).

The Bills, currently in last place in the division at 6-9, have won two straight games overall, and two straight in AFC East games. They'll look to close their 2013 campaign with a third straight win, which would avenge a two-point loss to New England at home in Week 1.
