The NFL is flexing the Week 7, Cincinnati Bengals-Kansas City Chiefs tilt to Sunday Night Football on Oct. 21, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, per a source informed of the decision. The game was initially scheduled for a 1 p.m. ET kick in K.C.
At 5-0, the Chiefs are one of two remaining unbeaten teams and boast a high-flying attack led by Mahomes that should help goose prime-time ratings. The Bengals currently sit at 4-1 atop the AFC North. With two high-profile offenses led by Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Kareem Hunt, A.J. Green, Andy Dalton and Joe Mixon, the NFL will give its prime-time viewers another shot to watch a potential shootout in Kansas City.
