NFL won't flex Cowboys-Eagles
NEW YORK -- The last-place Dallas Cowboys are getting another chance in prime time.
Dallas' matchup Dec. 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles will remain on Sunday night even though the NFL could have moved a different game into the slot under its flexible scheduling rules.
The league said Tuesday the Patriots-Bears game in Week 14 will shift from 1 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. ET.
The Cowboys fell way behind in losing their last two prime-time contests.
The Eagles are 7-4 and tied for first place in the NFC East heading into Thursday's game against Houston. Dallas is 3-8 and plays at Indianapolis on Sunday.
