If both teams stay on course, this could be one ‘lit’ Sunday night football contest.
For the first time this season, the NFL has decided to take advantage of flex scheduling — announcing on Monday that the Bengals’ Week 11 game at Arizona has been moved into prime time.
The Bengals-Cardinals game, which had originally been set to air at 4:05 p.m ET on CBS, will now air on Nov. 22 at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
With Week 11 flex, Cardinals will be on NBC in consecutive weeks — at Seattle and vs. Bengals.

Not only does the game match up two teams that are currently in first place in their divisions, but it also pits Cincinnati against Carson Palmer, the former Bengals quarterback who said in 2011 he’d retire before playing another game.
