Vikings-Packers Moves to 3:15 PM CT & Giants-Eagles Moves to 12:00 PM CT
The November 1 kickoff times for the New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers games have been flipped due to logistical issues in Philadelphia should the Philadelphia Phillies be in the World Series, the NFL announced today. Giants-Eagles will now be played at 12:00 PM CT and Vikings-Packers will begin at 3:15 PM CT, both on FOX.
To accommodate fans and city and stadium personnel in Philadelphia, the November 1 Giants-Eagles kickoff has been moved up three hours. The Philadelphia Phillies are in the National League Championship Series. If they win that series, the Phillies will host Game 4 of the World Series at 7:00 PM on Nov. 1.
With the Giants-Eagles game at 12:00 PM CT, the Vikings-Packers game will move to 3:15 PM CT to accommodate FOX broadcast patterns. The game-time changes have been made prior to the outcome of the NLCS to give fans of all four NFL teams involved as much advance notice as possible.
In the event of a World Series game in Philadelphia on November 1, moving the Giants-Eagles kickoff three hours earlier will help ease the burden on city service and law enforcement personnel who work at the two Philadelphia stadiums and staff the parking lots shared by the teams.
NOTE: These NFL game-time changes are final.
