Chicago Bears vs Minnesota Vikings Game Flexed into Prime Time

Chicago Bears vs Minnesota Vikings Game Flexed into Prime Time

The Bears-Vikings game at Soldier Field on November 18 has been flexed to primtetime. The Bears lost to the Packers 24-23 in the season opener.

The original Sunday Night Football matchup, Steelers at Jaguars, has been moved up to 1 p.m. on CBS.

The NFL has moved the Vikings game at Chicago from Sunday afternoon to prime time on NBC on November 18.

But while the Steelers have rallied to sit at 5-2-1 at the midway point of their season, Jacksonville is a disappointing 3-5. "To be flexed for that game, a division game, should be exciting to our team and our players". Chicago hosts Detroit this Sunday, while Minnesota has a bye.

"So that's a super-tight schedule for us", Nagy said. Before the move, the game was originally scheduled to kickoff at 1 p.m. ET and be televised by Fox.

The NFL announced on Monday that it was changing the start times for three Week 11 games. But Nagy wasn't a part of that losing stretch, and the first-year head coach said the Bears aren't talking about those past struggles.
