Steelers-Bengals kickoff time changed

The game time for the Steelers-Bengals game on Sunday, Dec. 28 has been changed from 1 p.m. to an 8:30 p.m. kickoff and will be televised nationally on NBC's Sunday Night Football. The game was changed as a part of the NFL's flex scheduling policy.

The Steelers and Bengals will be battling for the AFC North title, the only division title in the conference that has yet to be determined.

This will be the sixth time the Steelers will appear in primetime this season, and have a 4-1 record in primetime this year.  

Another game that had been considered for flexing was the Atlanta-Carolina game, where the winner goes to the playoffs and the loser is left out.
