The move means that the NFC North showdown at Soldier Field will now kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET and be televised by NBC.

The original Sunday Night Football matchup, Steelers at Jaguars, has been moved up to 1 p.m. on CBS.

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

Four other games have been protected by CBS, meaning they can not be flexed out of their current time slot.

The Vikings-Bears matchup in Week 11 on November 18, originally scheduled for a noon start on Fox, has been flexed to the Sunday night slot on NBC. The Bears will have a quick turnaround after their late-night finish - they play a midday game on Thanksgiving Day in Detroit four days later.

The NFL also made one other change to the Week 11 schedule: The game time for the Eagles-Saints game has been pushed back. Those were the only two Bears games originally scheduled for primetime this year.
