As expected, the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 15 Sunday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals has been flexed-out of its originally scheduled primetime spot. The game at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday, December, 18 will now be played at 1:00 p.m. instead.
Even though the Steelers and Bengals both won in Week 13, the league has decided to let NBC air the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys in primetime instead. That game was not protected by Fox.
The Bengals beat the Philadelphia Eagles 32-14 on Sunday while the Steelers beat the New York Giants 24-14. The Bengals will enter Week 14 with a 4-7-1 record while the Steelers moved to 7-5 on the season thanks to their win.
In week 14, the Bengals will play the winless Cleveland Browns on the road while the Steelers will play the Buffalo Bills on the road as well.
