Ravens-Patriots Week 16 game flexed to 4:25 p.m. kickoff time

Originally scheduled to be the Sunday Night Football game for Week 16, the Eagles-Bears game will take the Ravens and Patriots' place.

If you like to get to bed earlier, you'll be in favor of this. If you enjoy watching the Ravens on prime time television you'll hate it.

The NFL announced on Tuesday that the Week 16 matchup between the Ravens and Patriots, originally slated for Sunday night at 8:30 p.m., will be moved down to a 4:25 p.m. EST kickoff time. In its place, the Eagles and Bears will headline on NBC's Sunday Night Football.

It's definitely an interesting move to a degree. The Ravens-Patriots game, at this time at least, has playoff implications given that the Ravens are still in the driver's seat for the final Wild Card spot. Then again, both the Eagles and the Bears are fighting for their respective division titles. That's likely the bigger draw for the television folks.
