The NFL has moved the Week 10 Bears-Lions game at Soldier Field in Chicago to a 4:15 p.m. ET kickoff. The Week 10 Patriots-Jets matchup will remain as the Sunday-night game on NBC.

Flexible scheduling takes place during Weeks 10-15 and Week 17 this season. The Week 16 Bears-Packers game on Christmas night will not be moved.

The Lions and Bears will be fighting for a wild-card spot. Through eight weeks, the Lions have a 6-2 record and the Bears are 4-3. Both teams trail the undefeated Packers in the NFC North. The Lions won the first meeting against Chicago on "Monday Night Football" with a 24-13 victory in Week Five.
