CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Bengals (7-0) and Arizona Cardinals (6-2) had their Week 11 game flexed into the primetime slot and will be broadcast on "Sunday Night Football."

The Nov. 22 game was officially “flexed” to “Sunday Night Football” with a 8:30 p.m. kickoff, instead of its original 4:05 p.m. start time. The original "Sunday Night Football" telecast was supposed to be San Diego against Kansas City.

As it currently stands, five of the final nine games will come in primetime on national television. 

The Bengals will play the next three games in primetime.  Cincinnati hosts Cleveland on Thursday, then will play the Houston Texans on "Monday Night Football" before the Sunday night game against Carson Palmer at the Cardinals.

Week 15's Bengals matchup against the San Francisco 49ers is currently set for "Sunday Night Football" on Dec. 20. The Bengals will head to Denver in Week 16 for "Monday Night Football" on Dec. 28.

Andy Dalton helped the Bengals improve to a franchise best 7-0 record with a 16-10 victory against the Steelers Sunday afternoon.

Dalton connected with A.J. Green on a 9-yard touchdown with less than three minutes to play to give the Bengals their first lead of the game and the Bengals forced a Ben Roethlisberger pass out of the end zone on the game's final play to beat the Steelers at Heinz Field for the first time since 2012.
