NFL Flexes Bears-Eagles Game Into Primetime

(CBS) The Bears' win over the Cowboys on Monday night apparently caught the attention of NBC.

The Bears-Eagles game in Philadelphia on Dec. 22, originally scheduled for a noon kickoff, has been flexed to Sunday Night Football with a 7:30 p.m. CT start. As a result, the Patriots-Ravens game, originally scheduled for Sunday night, has been bumped to 3:25 p.m. CT on CBS.

The Bears are in the hunt for the NFC North title, but still need to beat the Cleveland Browns next week to stay in the hunt. Meanwhile, the Eagles are on a five-game winning streak.

The Bears are 4-0 in night games this season, including a convincing 40-23 win in Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football Sept. 22.
