A brief look ahead.

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan, the Philadelphia Eagles' Week 11 game against the Green Bay Packers has been flexed. The game was originally scheduled to start at 1:00 PM EST, but now it's scheduled for a late afternoon start of 4:25 PM EST.

Note that it was only a few weeks ago that FOX protected this game from being flexed to NBC's Sunday Night Football.

Originally scheduled for that time 4:25 PM EST time slot was a NFC North match-up against the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings. Both of those teams have struggled this season while Philadelphia and Green Bay are two of the better teams in the NFC. It's no surprise the game was switched out.

The Eagles and Packers will face off in Week 11 at Lambeau Field on Sunday, November 16. Before that takes place, however, the Eagles will first play the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football in Week 10 on November 10.
