The Eagles-Cowboys game on Dec. 12 will remain the Sunday-night primetime game, as the NFL chose not to flex a different game into the slot.

The league flexed the Patriots-Bears Week 14 game from 1 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. ET.

The Cowboys have played in primetime three times this season. They fell to the Redskins 13-7 in the season's first Sunday-night game, lost to the Giants on "Monday Night Football" 41-35 in a game in which they fell behind 38-20 and got walloped by the Packers 45-7 on a Sunday evening.

The Eagles are tied for first in the NFC East at 7-4 while the Cowboys are in last place at 3-8, essentially out of the playoff race.

The way we see it

The Cowboys' demise this season led some to wonder if another game would move into the Sunday-night slot, but there aren't a whole lot of games in Week 14 between two teams with serious playoff implications other than the game that was already flexed, Bears-Patriots. The Cowboys have been competitive since Jason Garrett took over as head coach, winning two games and falling late to the Saints on Thanksgiving Day.
