The Bears will appear on NBC's "Sunday Night Football" after originally being scheduled for a noon game on Fox.
The NFL announced Monday that the NFC North head-to-head on November 18 will be flexed from noon (CT) to 7:20 p.m. (CT) and air on NBC's Sunday Night Football. 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.
The original Sunday Night Football matchup, Steelers at Jaguars, has been moved up to 1 p.m. on CBS. "We'll focus in on what we have this week and as that time goes, we'll arrange the schedule and make sure we take care of our guys".More news: Liverpool defender Joe Gomez: Arsenal are title contenders
The Bears (5-3) have enjoyed faster-than-expected success this season and are in first place of the NFC North through Week 9. The Eagles (4-4) now sit one game out of first place in the NFC East.
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. It is scheduled to be played at 1 p.m.
