The NFL has changed the Week 15 schedule to move the Cardinals-Eagles matchup into prime time.
The previously scheduled Sunday Night Football game between the Bengals and 49ers has moved to 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS, and Cardinals-Eagles will be played in prime time on NBC on Sunday, December 20.
The league also announced that the 1 p.m. ET Buffalo-Washington game in Week 15 has moved from CBS to FOX.
The NFL attempts to put the best matchups in front of the largest audiences, particularly late in the season when playoff berths are at stake. With the 5-7 Eagles still in the NFC East race but the 4-8 49ers out of any realistic playoff contention, Cardinals-Eagles is a better game to put in front of a bigger audience, and that’s what the NFL has done.
