Green Bay Packers Have Another Game Flexed to Late Afternoon
The NFL has announced that another Green Bay Packers game has been moved from a noon start to 3:25 PM.
Week 14's matchup between the Packers and Detroit Lions has been moved to a 3:25 PM start on December 13. The move gives FOX another option in that late-afternoon window that features New Orleans/Philadelphia, Washington/San Francisco, or Atlanta/Los Angeles Chargers.
As of now, no other games as part of the NFL's Week 14 schedule have been moved. Based on the Sunday Night Football game between the Steelers and Bills, I wouldn't anticipate any other changes to the schedule for Week 14 unless it has to do with the COVID-19 pandemic.
This also sets up nicely for us here in Sioux Falls. Under the previous schedule, Minnesota would be the game televised at noon while Green Bay would not be available (unless you have Sunday Ticket). Now, we'll get a doubleheader that sees the Vikings at noon and the Packers to follow.
With the team sitting on top of the NFC North, and Aaron Rodgers playing at an MVP level, the league has turned to put Green Bay in more of a national spotlight. Previously, the Packers Week 11 matchup against the Colts was moved to 3:25 PM. Following this Week 14 move, the Packers will be playing all but one of its remaining games in either the late-afternoon timeslot or as part of a night national broadcast.
