NFL flexes Vikings-Bears to prime time on Nov. 18
NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL has moved the Vikings game at Chicago from Sunday afternoon to prime time on NBC on Nov. 18.
Chicago currently leads the NFC North at 5-3, a half-game in front of Minnesota, which has a bye this week. The Bears will play the early game at Detroit on Thanksgiving less than four days after the night game with the Vikings.
It’s the second time this season the league flexed a Sunday game to prime time. Previously it did so to Cincinnati at Kansas City on Oct. 21.
