Good news, Chicago Bears: You've played well enough to get a spot in prime-time.

The success of the Bears has led them back to primetime.

Moving the Week 11 game back to a 7:20 Central kickoff makes a quick turnaround into Week 12's Thanksgiving game at Detroit even shorter.

The game, which was originally scheduled to be played at noon CST, has been moved to 7:20 p.m.

The league also announced November 18 schedule changes for the Eagles-Saints and Steelers-Jaguars matchups. The Bears (5-3) and Vikings (5-3-1) sit atop the division through Week 9.

The Bears will wear their orange jerseys for the second time this season against the Vikings, having previously lost to the Dolphins 31-28 in overtime October 14 in Miami. This game will mark the first time since 2012 that the Bears have hosted a Sunday night game and will mark the first time since 2011 that the Vikings and Bears have been given the Sunday night time slot together.
