The final Week 15 NFL schedule was announced today, and AFC North matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers will remain in primetime on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. It was looking earlier this year like the NFL would flex this game into one of the earlier slot in favor of a game with more playoff implications.

That was when the Steelers started the year 0-4, but after a second-half rally has them at 5-7 and still alive for a playoff berth, this will be the latest Steelers-Bengals primetime matchup.

The league did announce two changes, as the New Orleans Saints vs. St. Louis Rams game and the Arizona Cardinals vs. Tennessee Titans game will both be played at 4:25 PM ET on FOX.

The NFL uses “flexible scheduling” on Sundays in Weeks 11-17 to ensures quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots in those weeks. For each flexible scheduling week with the exception of Week 17, the NFL announces the start times of games on Sundays no later than 12 days prior to that weekend.
