The NFL announced Monday the Bears home game on Sunday, November 18 against the Minnesota Vikings will now be a 7:20 p.m. kickoff.

The Pittsburgh Steelers at Jacksonville Jaguars game originally scheduled at 8:20 PM ET on NBC will move to CBS at 1 PM ET. The Bears (5-3) sit atop the division with a half-game lead over the Vikings (5-3-1).

The Vikings and the Bears might well be battling for first place in the NFC North when they meet on November 18, and that means the noon start at Soldier Field will change. Also moving that days is the matchup between the Eagles and Saints in New Orleans, now a 4:25 p.m. game on Fox rather than at 1 p.m.

The league also announced November 18 schedule changes for the Eagles-Saints and Steelers-Jaguars matchups.

"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 Eagles (4-4) now sit one game out of first place in the NFC East. It is scheduled to be played at 1 p.m. The NFL implemented flexible scheduling in 2006 for Weeks 10-15 and expanded it in 2014 to include Weeks 5-17.
