NEW YORK (AP) - The showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East title is being moved to prime time next Sunday night.

For the third straight year, the Cowboys will play a division rival in the finale with the East championship at stake. Philadelphia (9-6) leads Dallas (8-7) by one game, with the winner moving into the playoffs and the loser being eliminated.

So the NFL switched the afternoon game to a 7:30 p.m. CST start at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Also moving are Buffalo at New England and Tampa Bay at New Orleans to 3:25 p.m. Sunday.

Green Bay (7-7-1) at Chicago (8-7) for the NFC North championship also will be a 3:25 p.m. Sunday. The loser goes home.
