Saints-Bucs Kickoff Moved

December 24th, 2017

New time for last game of 2017.

The NFL just released its finalized Week 17 schedule and the Saints-Bucs game has a new time.

The new kickoff is  4:25 p.m. Sunday. So you may have to push back your New Year’s Eve plans a bit, per NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy.

Interestingly, there apparently isn’t a compelling game enough to broadcast on Sunday night. In the released statement, the NFL suggested it wanted all playoff games set by the end of the second window of games Sunday.

Joe has a hunch NBC took a look at the possible games they would get and told the NFL, “Nah, we’re good. Thanks.”

    good or bad..however you look @ it……with the close game and jameis fiasco at the end of the game

    I bet they wish that would happen again just for ratings …….makes great TV in their eyes

    Well at least some people will already be half-crocked…won’t remember a damn

  4. Suck-a-neers SMH Says:

    No biggie. We won’t be watching this crap anyway.

  5. UKBucfan Says:

    Great for UK Bucs fans, I’ll now miss the game as it coincides with new year.. thanks NFL

  6. Rrsrq Says:

    I believe the NFL wants the Falcons/Panthers and the Saints/Bucs being played at the same time since the game has division and playoff seeding implications

  7. AlteredEgo Says:

    I was hoping they moved it to 9AM so we can move on to the offseason

    What time is the jon gruden press conference?

  9. Mike Johnson Says:

    Saints might rest Brees or play him one qtr. Bucs might have a shot here. But lets keep it real guys. We need that 4th or 5th pick in the draft. I hope Brees plays the entire game!!

  10. Rod Munch Says:

    I would love to see an afternoon thunderstorm pop up and delay the game for an hour, just got old times sake.

    Bucs win last game – fire coach – keep Licht – get last pick in the draft – draft Gale Sayers. because Payton Barber is not like the Kansas Comet. Find out Sayers is not available; like permanently. – Fire Licht.

  12. Greg Says:

    This is crap, and I get paid to go to the games!

  13. Greg Says:

    It really is awful that the league does this to the fans. People have their NYE plans in place already. Whenever the NFL says they care about the players or the fans…they are always lying

  14. Capt.Tim Says:

    NfL thinks Breez is gonna carve up Bucs weak defense.
    Will build up interest in Aints for the playoffs.

    And it will gondown that way

  15. Capt.Tim Says:

    Go down*
    Of course, knowing the Bucs, they will probably win this meanless game.
    That way they can miss out on Arden Key and Bradley Chubbs.
