The final Week 15 NFL schedule was released on Monday, with the Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game holding onto its original slot in NBC's Sunday Night Football.

Two minor changes were made, as the Dec. 15 New Orleans Saints vs. St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals vs. Tennessee Titans games have been flexed into the late afternoon slots. Both games will kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET on FOX.

Beginning in Week 11 and running through the remainder of the regular season, the league uses flexible scheduling to ensure that top games get prime time billing. Matchups between top teams can be moved into either the Sunday night or late afternoon slots during these weeks.
