Bears-Eagles flexed to Sunday night over Pats-Ravens in Week 16
The Bears-Eagles game in Week 16 was flexed into the 'Sunday Night Football' slot while Patriots-Ravens was moved to 4:25 p.m. ET.
Rookie head coaches Chip Kelly and Marc Trestman have the Eagles and Bears on the brink of making the postseason. And they'll have a critical matchup in prime-time in Week 16 as the NFL flexed that game into Sunday night.
Philadelphia and Chicago, originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon on FOX, will now air on Sunday night at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC as the featured Sunday Night Football game.
Instead, Tom Brady and Joe Flacco will do battle on CBS at 4:25 p.m. ET. It's quite possible, too, that the Patriots will have clinched a playoff spot by the time Week 16 rolls around. They simply need to win or tie this week to win the AFC East and could also clinch a playoff spot if the Ravens lose in Week 15.
The flex decision is a little surprising from a star power standpoint, but Bears-Eagles should provide plenty of offensive fireworks for folks watching at home.
