Packers-Lions game flexed to 7:30 p.m. CT

Week 17 NFC North title game moved back from noon time slot


The Packers-Lions game on Jan. 1 has been flexed to 7:30 p.m. Central Time instead of its original noon timeslot, the NFL announced on Sunday.

The game, originally scheduled to be broadcast on FOX, will instead air on NBC's Sunday Night Football from Ford Field in Detroit.

Green Bay's regular-season finale is set to be the de facto NFC North title game, regardless of the result of Detroit's Week 16 game in Dallas on Monday night. The winner of the Jan. 1 showdown between the Packers and Lions will win the NFC North and be guaranteed to host a playoff game.
