Of course, with the Vikings and Bears being flexed into the Sunday night game, that means someone had to be flexed out.

After both teams recorded decisive victories Sunday, the Bears (5-3, .625) maintain a narrow lead over the Vikings (5-3-1, .611) atop the NFC North.

Kickoff was originally scheduled for 2 p.m. CST on November 18 at Soldier Field.

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

The NFL announced on Monday that it was changing the start times for three Week 11 games. Now, the lights will be on at Soldier Field as the Bears hit Sunday night Football for the first time since Week 1.

As a result, two other games have been moved to new times. The Eagles (4-4) now sit one game out of first place in the NFC East.

That bumps Steelers at Jaguars to 1 p.m. EST on CBS. The NFL implemented flexible scheduling in 2006 for Weeks 10-15 and expanded it in 2014 to include Weeks 5-17.
