The NFL apparently cannot get enough of the Arizona Cardinals.

The team announced Monday its Dec. 20 road game at the Philadelphia Eagles has been “flexed” into a Sunday night game on NBC. Kickoff, which was originally slated for 11 a.m., will now take place at 6:30 p.m. Arizona time.

This is the second time a Cardinals game has been moved from a regular time slot into a prime time one, following the team’s Week 11 home matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The game being moved to Sunday night gives the Cardinals a franchise-record five prime time appearances in the 2015 regular season, with all coming in a span of eight games. Arizona joins the 2013 Eagles as the only teams in NFL history to be flexed into Sunday’s final game twice in a single season.

Heading into Week 14 the Cardinals lead the NFC West with a 10-2 record while the Eagles, at 5-7, are tied for second in the NFC East. The teams met in Week 8 last season, with the Cardinals prevailing 24-20 in Arizona.
