Some thought Sunday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field would be flexed to a night game, but the NFL decided to move the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers into Sunday night and the Packers vs. Lions contest will be moved from noon to 3:25 p.m. The news on the Packers and Lions was reported on the Detroit Lions team website.
NBC-TV’s Sunday night football telecast reported the news of the Bengals and Steelers during their halftime show.
No night game was scheduled for Sunday, but one game was going to be moved.
In week 17, the NFL prefers to have a Sunday night game where one of the teams must win in order to make the playoffs. The Packers and Lions have both already clinched playoff spots.
