Packers-Falcons game Dec. 8th changed to noon kickoff
GREEN BAY - The Packers/Falcons game on December 8th has been changed from a nighttime kickoff to a noon kickoff, the NFL announced late Sunday night.
The NFL has the right to use "flex" scheduling to change Sunday Night Football matchups to show more appealing teams and games. The league decided to put Saints vs. Panthers, a game that could decide the NFC South title, in the prime time slot on December 8th.
This is the second time "flex" scheduling has altered the Packers schedule. The November 17th game at New York was changed to a 3:25 kickoff time because of the policy.
