Bengals vs Steelers flexed out of Sunday Night Football
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The NFL is moving the Bengals (5-4) vs Steelers (2-6) out of the Sunday Night Football slot for Week 11, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Taking the place of the AFC North rivalry matchup will be the Kansas City Chiefs (6-2) vs Los Angeles Chargers (5-3), Schefter tweeted Tuesday.
The Athletic’s Paul Dehner says the Bengals’ Nov. 20 road game against the Steelers will now start at 4:25 p.m.
At least the Bengals social media team does not seem to be bothered by the schedule change.
The move is part of the NFL’s “flexible scheduling” procedure which was implemented in 2006. The flex scheduling allows the league to move games in weeks five through 18 from Sunday afternoon to Sunday night.
