Steelers' game at Jacksonville flexed; four others protected

Vikings vs. Bears flexed to Sunday night in Week 11

Vikings vs. Bears flexed to Sunday night in Week 11

The success of the Bears has led them back to primetime.

The Bears and Vikings will play at 7:20 p.m. on November 18.

Kickoff was originally scheduled for 2 p.m. CST on November 18 at Soldier Field. It is scheduled to be played at 1 p.m. Now, the lights will be on at Soldier Field as the Bears hit Sunday night Football for the first time since Week 1.

NBC will televise the game as Sunday Night Football after it was flexed to a 7:20 p.m. start on Monday.

The Bears vs Vikings game replaces the 5-2-1 Pittsburgh Steelers at the 3-5 Jacksonville Jaguars, a rematch of last season's wild 45-42 AFC Divisional round matchup that propelled the upstart Jaguars into the AFC Championship game.

The Bears opened the 2018 season with two night games for the first time in franchise history. The Vikings (5-3-1) are in second.

The night game presents a major challenge for the Bears because they will have less than four days to turn around from facing the Vikings to playing the Lions in Detroit at 11:30 a.m. Thanksgiving Day.

The NFL has made a few changes to its Week 11 schedule.
