Steelers Week 11 game with Jaguars flexed out of primetime

Vikings vs. Bears flexed to Sunday night in Week 11

Vikings vs. Bears flexed to Sunday night in Week 11

NBC decided on Monday to flex the team's November 18 home game against the Vikings to 7:20 p.m.

This will be the third consecutive year in which Minnesota's annual trip to Soldier Field will be a night game (the past two have been on Monday Night Football).

The Pittsburgh Steelers at Jacksonville Jaguars game originally scheduled at 8:20 PM ET on NBC will move to CBS at 1 PM ET.

Chicago now leads the NFC North at 5-3, a half-game in front of Minnesota, which has a bye this week. Rather than playing at 1 p.m. ET on FOX, the Eagles and Saints will face off at 4:25 p.m. on the same channel.

Four other games have been protected by CBS, meaning they can not be flexed out of their current time slot.

The Steelers have one other game that could still be flexed out of its current time slot - at Oakland Dec. 9. The NFL implemented flexible scheduling in 2006 for Weeks 10-15 and expanded it in 2014 to include Weeks 5-17.
