Next week's Bills-Jets finale won't move to prime time

The Buffalo Bills' season finale against the New York Jets at Ralph Wilson Stadium will remain a 1 p.m. kickoff next Sunday.

The game was a possible contender to be moved to prime time, but the NFL announced Sunday night that the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers will meet for the NFC North title at 8:30 p.m. next Sunday on NBC.

Next week's game against the Jets is huge ... for the Jets and the AFC.

If the Jets win, they are in the playoffs -- and they'd have to do it against former coach Rex Ryan.

Soon after the Jets' win Sunday afternoon, the NFL Network's Rich Eisen tweeted that he thought Bills-Jets was headed to prime time.

However, our Vic Carucci later tweeted that, because the Jets' and Steelers' fates are intertwined, those games might be played at the same time. If the Steelers win at Cleveland and the Jets lose, that would put Pittsburgh in.

ESPN's Adam Schefter later tweeted that the Vikings and Packers were the likely flex option.
