Game Between Vikings and Lions Flexed To Later Time Slot

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

For the second time this season, a game involving the Minnesota Vikings has been flexed in some way.

If you'll recall, the game between the Vikings and the Chicago Bears was flexed between networks, moving from FOX to CBS in an effort to balance out the number of games between the two primary NFL broadcast networks. In this case, it has just been announced that the Week 15 matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions has been moved from its scheduled start time of noon Central into a later, 3:25 PM Central time slot.

The game will still be broadcast on FOX.

I'm not sure if anyone is going to be paying attention to the Vikings/Lions game that weekend anyway now that it has been flexed. The other FOX game in that time slot for Week 15 is the rematch between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks that figures to be shown to the majority of the nation. Basically, what I'm saying is that if you're not in Minnesota or Michigan that weekend, forget about it.

The CBS alternative will be a battle between the New York Jets (Minnesota's opponent this coming weekend) and the Tennessee Titans.

Once again, the game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions has been moved to a 3:25 PM Central time kickoff on Sunday, 14 December.
