Bears-Lions Week 10 meeting moved to 4:15 p.m. ET on Fox

The Chicago Bears' Week 10 home game against the Detroit Lions has been moved to 4:15 p.m ET, the NFL announced Monday.

The game, originally scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff Nov. 13, features a rematch of the Lions' 24-13 victory Oct. 10 on "Monday Night Football." It's the only Week 10 game that the NFL is switching.

The matchup between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets will remain televised Sunday night on NBC, as initially scheduled.

Week 10 marks the first week the NFL can use "flexible scheduling," which allows teams to be able to play their way into prime time or CBS or Fox's late-afternoon games. Flexible scheduling runs from Week 10 through 15 and Week 17.

For each of the flexible scheduling weeks -- with the exception of Week 17 -- the NFL will announce the start times of games on Sundays no later than 12 days before that weekend.
