Steelers Week 11 game with Jaguars flexed out of primetime

  • Bears-Vikings game moved to primetime

25 home game against the Packers (3-4-1) is also scheduled to be on Sunday Night Football. It is scheduled to be played at 1 p.m.

The night game presents a major challenge for the Bears because they will have less than four days to turn around from facing the Vikings to playing the Lions in Detroit at 11:30 a.m. Thanksgiving Day.

Back in 2011, Lovie Smith's Bears beat Leslie Frazier's Vikings 39-10.

When the schedule makers put this together, Steelers vs Jaguars looked like must-see TV.


Getting the Jags out of prime time makes a lot of sense.

The NFC North matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears was flexed from a 1 p.m. ET start time on FOX to the Sunday Night Football slot on NBC.

Chicago now leads the NFC North at 5-3, a half-game in front of Minnesota, which has a bye this week.

Four other games have been protected by CBS, meaning they can not be flexed out of their current time slot. That NFC showdown will be televised by Fox.
