Packers booted from Prime Time

For the second time this season, the Green Bay Packers are being booted from Prime Time.

The Packers game against the Atlanta Falcons on December 8th at Lambeau Field was originally slated to kick off at 7:30pm.  Because of the NFL’s Flex scheduling, the game will slide all the way back into the noon slot.

Fox has the option of taking the game and moving it into the late afternoon slot, but they’ve declined to make that move.

NBC is opting instead to go with the NFC South Division matchup between Carolina and New Orleans.
