Bears-Vikings game moved to primetime

The game had previously been scheduled for noon.

Moving the Week 11 game back to a 7:20 Central kickoff makes a quick turnaround into Week 12's Thanksgiving game at Detroit even shorter.

Back in 2011, Lovie Smith's Bears beat Leslie Frazier's Vikings 39-10. The Bears (5-3) and Vikings (5-3-1) sit atop the division through Week 9.

The league also announced November 18 schedule changes for the Eagles-Saints and Steelers-Jaguars matchups. Now, the lights will be on at Soldier Field as the Bears hit Sunday night Football for the first time since Week 1.

"When we first got here we talked about how fortunate we were - I'm talking about myself with the team, how fortunate we were to have two prime-time games to start the year", Nagy said. The Jaguars (3-5) are tied for last in the AFC South while the Steelers (5-2-1) are ranked first in the AFC North.

The Vikings-Bears game in Chicago is now the Sunday Night Football game on NBC.

The NFL announced on Monday that it was changing the start times for three Week 11 games.
