Packers Christmas Eve Game Stays at Noon
The Packers game against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field will stay at noon for a kickoff time according to the latest schedule from the NFL. Some people thought the Packers game would be flex scheduled to 3:25 PM since it might be a contest for the wild card or division lead. Instead the NFL opted to flex the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs New Orleans Saints game to the 3:25 PM kickoff spot.
Because Christmas Day falls on a Sunday, the NFL has moved all Sunday games that weekend to Saturday, December 24.
Only two games will air on Sunday, Christmas Day. Baltimore at Pittsburgh at 3:30 PM and Denver at Kansas City at 7:30 PM.
