The world will get to witness more Patrick Mahomes in prime time. Cincinnati had not been scheduled another nationally televised game.

This will be the first Sunday night game for the Bengals, who lead the AFC North at 4-1, since the 2015 season.

The original Sunday night game for that date between the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers has instead been shifted to that afternoon, with kickoff at 4:25 p.m. ET.

Virgil van Dijk 'ready to play' for Liverpool, says Ronald Koeman
Van Dijk opened the scoring with a well-taken header after Ryan Babel had headed against the crossbar on 30 minutes. Low's Germany , who won the World Cup in 2014, have only one point from their opening two Nations League matches.

- The majority of games on Sundays will be listed at 1:00 p.m. ET during flex weeks except for games played in Pacific or Mountain Time zones which will be listed at 4:05 or 4:15 p.m. ET.

The Chiefs are one of only two 5-0 teams, along with the Rams. With two high-profile offenses led by Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Kareem Hunt, A.J. Green, Andy Dalton and Joe Mixon, the National Football League will give its prime-time viewers another shot to watch a potential shootout in Kansas City.

With the recent news, we're going to take a look at the remainder of the season and break down the most likely options games to be flexed. The 49ers visit Green Bay in Week 6 on Monday night.
