NFL flexes Bengals-Cardinals matchup to 'SNF'


We have our first flexed "Sunday Night Football" game of the season.

The NFL announced Monday it has moved the Week 11 Cincinnati Bengals at Arizona Cardinals matchup on Sunday, Nov. 22, to the 8:30 p.m. ET prime-time slot on NBC.

Every game, all season

The Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers game will move to 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS.

The flex means the Bengals, currently 7-0, will play three straight nationally televised prime-time games, beginning with Thursday night's contest against the Cleveland Browns, shown exclusively on NFL Network -- Week 10 on MNF vs. Houston Texans. Andy Dalton, who has been spectacular for most of this season, will have a chance to rewrite his "bombs under the lights" narrative. (Dalton is 3-7 for his career in prime time.)

The Cardinals (6-2) will also play back-to-back Sunday night games in Weeks 10 and 11 following their bye this week.

The NFL also announced the Week 11 Green Bay Packers-Minnesota Vikings game will move to 4:25 p.m. ET on FOX.

Additionally, the Week 10 Chicago Bears at St. Louis Rams game on Sunday, Nov. 15, moves from FOX to CBS. Kickoff time remains at 1:00 p.m. ET. The Bengals also have a pair of prime-time games in Weeks 15 and 16.
