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.

The Bears (5-3) have enjoyed faster-than-expected success this season and are in first place of the NFC North through Week 9.

For the first time in seven years, the Vikings-Bears rivalry is headed for "Sunday Night Football".

NBC will televise the game as Sunday Night Football after it was flexed to a 7:20 p.m. start on Monday. The Bears lost to the Packers 24-23 in the season opener. "To be flexed for that game, a division game, should be exciting for our team and our players". "But we can't worry about that". Also moving that days is the matchup between the Eagles and Saints in New Orleans, now a 4:25 p.m. game on Fox rather than at 1 p.m.

The NFL announced on Monday that it was changing the start times for three Week 11 games. "It's week by week, it's practice by practice".
