The team announced this afternoon that their Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears has been flexed to the Sunday Night Football "Game of the Week." it was first reported by WIP's Andrew Porter.
The Bears big victory over the Cowboys on Monday night pulled them into a tie for the NFC North lead with the Detroit Lions. The Eagles win over the Lions combined with the Cowboys loss gives them a one-game cushion in the NFC East lead heading into the final three weeks of the season. This game is going to hold enormous stakes for both teams.
No word yet on the Eagles-Cowboys game in Week 17 which is looming large for the NFC East race.
