The Dallas Cowboys are having a magical season, and it looks like the NFL wants everyone watching as much of it as possible. The league announced Sunday that the Cowboys’ Dec. 18 game against the Buccaneers has been moved to primetime, giving Dallas four consecutive games under the lights.

The Cowboys played Thursday night this week and beat the Vikings. Dallas will face the Giants next Sunday night then take on the Bucs in primetime. In Week 16, Dallas faces the Lions on Monday night. According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, it's the first time in league history a team will have four straight games in primetime.

The Cowboys finish their season against the Eagles, a game that currently is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET. Dallas (11-1) has the best record in the NFL and is riding a franchise-record 11-game win streak.
