The Arizona Cardinals were slated to have three nationally-televised games this season.
The first was Monday, Oct. 26, on Monday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens. The second will be Sunday, Nov. 15, on the road against the Seattle Seahawks. The third is scheduled for Dec. 10, a Thursday Night home tilt with the Minnesota Vikings.
You can add another to the list.
It was announced Monday that they will have a fourth prime-time game, as their Nov. 22 home matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals has been flexed to Sunday Night Football. A game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers was originally set for that slot.
Kickoff will be at 6:30 p.m. Arizona time, and combined with their road game at Seattle, the Cardinals will for the first time in team history play back-to-back games on Sunday Night Football. It will be just the seventh time since 2006 it has happened for any team.
It will also be the Bengals’ third consecutive week on prime time.
