NFL Announces Week 12 Flex Scheduling Changes

The Week 12 Philadelphia Eagles-Indianapolis Colts game on Sunday, November 26 will be played at 8:15 PM ET on NBC and the Chicago Bears-New England Patriots and New York Giants-Tennessee Titans games that day will move to 4:15 PM ET on FOX, the NFL announced today.

About Flexible SchedulingThe NFL is implementing for the first time this year a "flexible scheduling" element on Sundays in Weeks 10-15 and in Week 17. Flexible scheduling will ensure quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots in those weeks and give teams a chance to play their way onto primetime and into the late-afternoon 4:15 PM ET time slot on CBS and FOX.

For each of the flexible scheduling weeks with the exception of Week 17, the NFL will announce the start times of games on Sundays no later than 12 days prior to that weekend. To ensure a Sunday night game and doubleheader games with playoff implications in Week 17, the flexible scheduling decision for that Sunday may be made on six days notice.
