Bears vs. Vikings flexed to Sunday night in Week 11

The NFL has announced that Minnesota and Chicago have been flexed to prime time for Week 11. In Week 12, they host the Packers, but depending on how Green Bay plays in the next few weeks, that could change.

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

The Bears are 16-23 all-time on Sunday Night Football.

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.

Since first donning their orange alternate jerseys in 2005, the Bears are 5-3. This will be the first time the Bears wear their orange jerseys in a primetime game. Originally, the two teams were supposed to kickoff at 1 p.m.in New Orleans, but that game time has now been moved to 4:25 p.m. ET. Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m. CT.
