An important change concerning this season’s slate involves flex scheduling. Games can now be flexed into "Sunday Night Football" as early as Week 5, a league source revealed to NFL.com. In the past, "flex scheduling" did not start until Week 11. The league can also "cross flex" select games between CBS and FOX.
