NFL Week 11 Flex Scheduling Changes: Chiefs-Chargers moved to Prime-Time

The NFL schedule is always seeing adjustments and the NFL has made its first changes as two games will swap time slots in week 11.

At first, the Kansas City Chiefs were scheduled to face their division rival Los Angeles Chargers at 3:25 on November 20th, but it will now be moved to 7:20 Prime-Time. The Cincinnati Bengals vs Pittsburgh Steelers was originally in the Sunday Night Football slot.

What is NFL Flex Scheduling?

This was first implemented in the NFL in 2006 to ensure the best matchups for Sunday night. The NFL is allowed to use this twice from Weeks 5 to 11 and then anytime from Week 11 to alter the team playing on Sunday Night Football.
