ATLANTA (AP) -- The NFL has moved the kickoff time for the
Atlanta Falcons' home game against the Carolina Panthers on Nov. 23
to 4:15 p.m. The game originally was set for a 1 p.m. kickoff. The kickoff
time was moved back by the league on Monday so the game can be
televised nationally by Fox.
The league has a "flexible scheduling" plan for Weeks 11-17 of the season so networks can arrange for quality Sunday matchups. Carolina leads the NFC South division with a 7-2 record. Atlanta is 6-3 following its 34-20 win over New Orleans on Sunday. The Falcons will play host to Denver next Sunday.
