Vikings-Packers moves to 4:15 p.m. on November 1

The annual NFL flex schedule, with games potentially moving from Sunday afternoon to Sunday night on NBC (and vice-versa) and from early afternoon to late afternoon (and vice-versa) doesn’t begin until November 22.

But the NFL has pulled an early flip-flop of Sunday games, due ostensibly to the possibility of a World Series game being played in Philadelphia on November 1.

So the Giants-Eagles game slides from 4:15 p.m. ET to 1:00 p.m. ET.

In its place lands the Return of the Favre — Vikings-Packers at Lambeau Field.

Though Giants-Eagles is still a great game, it’s not as if Eli Manning has talked about retiring for five years, retired, unretired, was spurned in his attempt to return to the Giants, was traded to a team out of the conference, played a year, retired again, was released by the team in the other conference, hinted at unretiring again to play for the Eagles, told the Eagles no after weeks of anticipation, changed his mind again after training camp closed, and then helped lead the Eagles to a 5-0 record.

So i’s a significant move for FOX, since it pulls the latter portion of
the football game into prime time, giving FOX a great ratings boost for
its evening lineup, which presumably includes the World Series. 

Since there will be no Sunday night game that week, and given that The Cleveland Show and Family Guy will be preempted by the World Series, I figure I’ll just watch the damn baseball game. 

Until Mad Men starts.

    AWESOME!!! Later start time+ Even drunker Pack fans which = a more emotional,heart breaking loss at the hands of their banished son Brett!

    HELL – TO – THE – YES!!!!!!! I live in Indy and I would have had to watch the Colts vs 49ers at 1PM and my buddy has nfl league pass but is a big seahawks fan and they play the cowboys at 1 on nov 1st also (just my luck that they play at 1 after usually always playing at 4:15)…so I would not have been able to watch it at his house….so in other words SWEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTT!

  3. Supersuckers says: Oct 13, 2009 11:40 AM

    Awesome! More viewers for the Favre meltdown!

  4. hayward giablommi says: Oct 13, 2009 11:42 AM

    Smart move by the league since the Vikings-Packers game is bigger and it would be logistically impossible to have an Eagles game at 4:15 followed by a Phillies game at 8pm in South Philly.
    Any word on whether the Dolphins @ Jesters game originally scheduled for 1pm will be shifted to 4pm since they are now going against the Giants game?

  5. Larry David says: Oct 13, 2009 11:44 AM

    I’ve noticed that saying you watch “Mad Men” is the cool and hip thing to say these days. I’ll pass.

  6. Dutch says: Oct 13, 2009 11:45 AM

    In fairness, it would have been utter chaos in Philly if the game was at 4pm and the World Series game that night is in Philly. There isn’t enough parking to accomodate both simultaneously.
    This was a no-brainer. The fact that Fox had an alternate game that would also garner excellent ratings made it an easy decision.

  7. emoser says: Oct 13, 2009 11:51 AM

    Giants-Eagles will be 10x better than Packers-Minn. ESPN already has me sick of that storyline and it should be a blowout.

  8. SpartaChris says: Oct 13, 2009 11:52 AM

    Bullshit.

  9. AD4MVP says: Oct 13, 2009 11:53 AM

    This was obvious – the vikes-bears Nov. 29th game will be moved to sunday night as well.

  10. ballhawk1 says: Oct 13, 2009 11:55 AM

    Itis not as if the media would stop blowing Favre he may just go away!! What a joke…Schedule hanges for 1 guy….YET THE NFL AND THE TEAMS SAY IT IS NOT ABOUT 1 PERSON!! What a joke.

  11. JimmySmith says: Oct 13, 2009 11:57 AM

    Doesn’t matter to the fans of Green Bay, the game is another sell out. (not like the other team which barely sold out its first playoff game in 7 years)

  12. terbsattack says: Oct 13, 2009 12:00 PM

    What is also worth mentioning is that this will move the Jets and Giants both into the 1:00 window. So after years of the league playing them in different slots, this is twice now that they will play at the same time. I guess the league determined that there was no real harm to the ratings in the NY market when they play at the same time.

  13. VoxVeritas says: Oct 13, 2009 12:04 PM

    Damn, I guess Giants/Eagles just isn’t viewable enough for FOX.

  14. Ftfxr says: Oct 13, 2009 12:17 PM

    Hey JimmySmith there is another reason it doesn’t matter to the fans of Green Bay. THEY ARE SELLING ALL OF THEIR TICKETS. You should see the number of tickets for sale for this game on the Pack website, stub Hub, ebay, etc. They are not even going for that much. Last Monday Night was hilarious, a bunch of drunk ‘Sconies walking around like they saw a ghost. Now it looks like there will be more purple in Green Bay than usual.

  15. gwinn1952 says: Oct 13, 2009 12:17 PM

    Most of you people just don’t get it….they didn’t move the game so we could possibly watch packers-vikings…they moved the giant/philly game because of the World Series. What they need to stop doing is having World Series games on Sunday….not like this is a one time year we have NFL Football on Sunday. You’d think they would plan for it….

  16. mnmaverick says: Oct 13, 2009 12:20 PM

    I like the noon games better. Waiting till 3:00 or 7:00 sucks.
    The Vikes may just come back to Earth in these next 3 or 4 games.
    Baltimore, Pittsburgh, a rematch with the Packers at Lambeau, and I think they play the Bears after their Bye Week.
    There are no cupcakes in that bunch.
    A loss or two wouldn’t be surprising.

  17. Chickenfoot says: Oct 13, 2009 12:23 PM

    Super:
    Yep that’s what you were all saying about the last Packer/ Viking game…..see how that worked out for you?
    Jimmy: What does that have to do with your team getting it’s ass handed to it….AGAIN?
    Maybe there will be a mass suicide after the game? One can have dreams.
    Oh wait Tauscher is back! The season is saved!!!
    lol
    Top 10 pick this year, have fun with it, teabag will just draft an overweight/ injured d lineman with it.

  18. emoser says: Oct 13, 2009 12:25 PM

    “Damn, I guess Giants/Eagles just isn’t viewable enough for FOX.”
    Yeah, they want to keep time slots open for close matchups like Dallas-KC. Your team is a joke.

  19. MrHumble says: Oct 13, 2009 12:25 PM

    I find this Favre bashing rather amusing and I’m not even a Viking or Packer fan. The media has caused the Favre circus not B. Favre but yet the media keeps writing how they are tired of the Favre mania. I haven’t seen Favre ask for the attention nor request “news conferences” everytime he burps. This is like the boy who “cried wolf” except it is the media doing the crying, not Favre. The media wants to have it both ways, to “have it’s cake and eat it too”… “we’ll keep bitchin’ about Favre getting the headlines but we’ll keep putting him in the headlines”…..even when nothing significant happens. Let’s make a story where there is no story……..and all they do is light a fire under the (stupid) fans arses to complain about too much Favre. The media’s job is to report the news, not create it or sensationalize it.

  20. Karen Rodgers says: Oct 13, 2009 12:33 PM

    Packers suck. Wisconsin sucks.

  21. Karen Rodgers says: Oct 13, 2009 12:33 PM

  22. AD4MVP says: Oct 13, 2009 12:41 PM

    JimmySmith
    Who was Green Bay’s QB the last time they one a playoff game? Oh yeah thats right, they kicked him out of town. Don’t worry he has found a nice home to the west.

  23. SidHartman says: Oct 13, 2009 12:44 PM

    Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy…you just can’t leave it alone.

  24. Beer Cheese Soup says: Oct 13, 2009 12:47 PM

    This makes sense.. It’s arguably the most anticipated game of the season, I could see why it would make sense to maximize the viewer audience.

    “The media has caused the Favre circus not B. Favre but yet the media keeps writing how they are tired of the Favre mania. I haven’t seen Favre ask for the attention nor request “news conferences” everytime he burps. ”
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    I guess it was the media who retired, stated they had no intention of returning, returned anyway, failed, retired again, stated he could not physically play the game anymore, put a statement out in the press stating he was staying retired, and then unretired again??
    WRONG, that was Favre.

    I love Jimmy b/c he comes on here all the time and makes packer fans look like complete idiots. Not that there are not some Vike fans that do the same, but Jimmy is as dependable as the sun.

  29. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Oct 13, 2009 1:03 PM

    I can’t stop watching the vikings this year espically since the start they are having. Brett throws 20 int’s a year, it is what he does. He is off to a slow start this year amd watching him get to 20+ this year is must see TV.

    Bullshit.

    Not it is not! The NYG/Philly of 2 rival teams each better than either the other 2 is a much better game.
    Same parking for both if Phillies play at home. Fans start leaving NFL game into gridlock traffic usually at around 7:30pm with other ones coming to the baseball already circling and stuck in the streets because they can’t get into the full lots and the spots on the street are occupied.

  32. Dewey ActSwooned says: Oct 13, 2009 1:17 PM

    In case you’ve never seen it, THIS is precisely how an over-rated, overhyped team arrives at 5-0 via a frosted cupcake schedule:
    @ Cleveland (gimme victory)
    @ Detroit (gimme victory)
    SF (BARELY squaked by them on a miracle play in the final seconds, even at home, while SF lacks a passing offense, and was missing their best player–not exactly a testament to greatness).
    GB (a so-so team with injury woes/holes on the o-line…again, Vikings benefit from a home game)
    @ STL (gimme victory)
    Yes, a “mighty” 5-0 indeed!! 2 narrow victories over flawed and mediocre opponents!
    Go blow those horns from the mountaintops, Queen fans!! Shine those purple helmets ’til they GLOW!
    Let’s be honest here, Heidi-holes:
    Even if you hump that wh0re Lady Luck all the way to 16-0, you still better prepare yourselves for the football gods to drop their inevitable hammer come playoff time…you do know the drill by now, right?
    One and done, once again, horn-suckers.

    Speaking of stupid Packer fans, haven’t heard from Dewey Asswound in a while. Hey bud, you haven’t been on the Vike threads as much since the Vikes beat your GreenBay Suckers. Good to have you back.
    Hey Dewey, make a quick comeback about how the vikings are lucky, how we didn’t really beat you (the final score was actually wrong. Packers won the game), and that our day is coming b/c even though we are 5-0 we are about to lose the rest of the games. Oh, and our defense is going to get torn apart by the Packers on Nov1 b/c our D is overrated.
    Oh yeah, and keep using your thesaurus to come up with big words to try to make you sound like you got some SMRT smarts (although I would have preferred pansophy to profundity)!

  36. B-dog says: Oct 13, 2009 1:44 PM

    As much as people say they’re sick of the Favre coverage, there must be enough interest out there to make the Vikes-Pack MNF game the highest rated cable show EVER.
    It doesn’t matter if you’re an Eagles fan, Giants fan, or Farve hater, you’ve got to admit that this game is intruiging and that FOX is smart for moving it.

    @CutlerISaPussy,
    How about a quick comeback telling your dumbass that I don’t give a good goddamn bloody sh1t about the Packers?
    But even for as bad as those milk-by-product suckers are, they have at least managed to win a couple of the Super Bowls they’ve been in, haven’t they?
    They may suck, but they’re not LOSERS on an epic, historical level, like some *other* franchises out there, right?

    Heyward blowme, another stupid post….what a surprise.
    “Returned anyway, failed, retired again” Failed? He took a 4-12 Eric Mangina led team to 9-7, knocked off the undefeated Titans, beat the Pats, was voted to the pro bowl, and at this time last year he was the league’s number 1 passer. That’s failing?

    Sorry “hayward gioblommi”…..there have been many nfl players who have retired and un-retired….junior seau, mcginist, v. testaverde, etc. etc. and the media didn’t put them in the spotlight like they do with Favre. I am not disputing it gets tiring hearing about Favre as much as we do, but the point i am trying to make is that it is the MEDIA who insists on burning the candle from both ends by keeping him in the news but then bitching about it…….really a simple concept to understand…….it’s called media sensationalism and that’s what gets people like you to read all the articles and then complain.

  48. duzzer says: Oct 13, 2009 3:16 PM

    It’s great news!! The Vikings stay 30 miles south of Greenbay in Appleton the night before the game which is Halloween night. A huge costume party at the hotel there staying at and with all money donated going to The Childrens Hospital. The players are usually hanging around the lounge and it get’s quite crowded down there. Now the later start time will give us more time to recover from an all night party. Can you realize how crowded it will be with The Vikes and Favre coming to town. What a party weekend it’s going to be and a Packer victory to boot!!

  49. JimmySmith says: Oct 13, 2009 3:18 PM

    Just stating the facts, nothing else. Its amazing to me to see all these Viking fans talking smack. Now, if they would only reach in their pockets and pull out some money to buy a ticket, then the franchise wouldn’t look so silly.
    But I have been to the Humpty Dome and it is the pits, probably the worse place to watch football in all the NFL so how can you give the fans a hard time when the place reeks of beer piss? Combine that with the choking playoff losses and its a wonder they have a fan base at all. But look at the likes of them posting, inbreds that call the 6th grade their senior year.

  50. hayward giablommi says: Oct 13, 2009 3:19 PM

    @ MrHumble
    First of all, I do agree that the media is a disgrace…not just the sports media, but mainstream media in general. Sports media in particular is geared to hype certain teams and players nonstop. Thanks, ESPN.
    However – it’s naive to just blame the media for the circus that is Brett Favre. You forget that Favre has been hinting at retirement since what…2003?
    Do you remember his teary “I’m gonna miss the game” post game pseudo-retirement interview with Andrea Kremer on Soldier Field at the end of the 2006 season? Who’s to blame for that? The media’s sensationalism? I don’t think so.

  51. packers4life says: Oct 13, 2009 3:24 PM

    Why am I not surprised….another Packer story being invaded by Viking fans…
    “Now it looks like there will be more purple in Green Bay than usual.”
    They can’t even sell out Viking games so what makes you think they will invade Lambeau?

  52. purpleguy says: Oct 13, 2009 3:47 PM

    Tough decision to move the game to a national audience after a Monday night game that created the highest cable audience ever. Whether you like Lord Favre and his act or not, the Vike/cheeser matchup is popular, and will likely be even bigger if the Pack can manage to block a defensive lineman for the first time all year and win its next two rollover games. Then the ridiculous cheese-roll fan momentum that started after the Pack “won” the pre-season title will start all over again. At least they will finally then back off the only real argument they’ve been able to make the past 2 years — “we were Super Bowl champions when Adrian Peterson was potty training”.

    i love all the vikings fans who assume that the november 1st game will be a blow out. last week your quarterback had an amazing game, you had 8 (eight!!!!) sacks, at least 2 turnovers, and you won by how many? 7 points? wow, so impressive. all signs definitely point to a blow out.

    And actually the odor in the Humpty Dome changes each week. The beer piss is to make Packer fans more comfortable.

    Just stating the facts, nothing else. Its amazing to me to see all these Viking fans talking smack. Now, if they would only reach in their pockets and pull out some money to buy a ticket, then the franchise wouldn’t look so silly.
    But I have been to the Humpty Dome and it is the pits, probably the worse place to watch football in all the NFL so how can you give the fans a hard time when the place reeks of beer piss? Combine that with the choking playoff losses and its a wonder they have a fan base at all. But look at the likes of them posting, inbreds that call the 6th grade their senior year.
    ============================
    Jimmy: congrats, that is your 934th post saying exactly the same thing.
    You are a pathetic poster. How does it feel to be a laughingstock on this site?

    Why am I not surprised….another Packer story being invaded by Viking fans…
    “Now it looks like there will be more purple in Green Bay than usual.”
    They can’t even sell out Viking games so what makes you think they will invade Lambeau?

    i love all the vikings fans who assume that the november 1st game will be a blow out. last week your quarterback had an amazing game, you had 8 (eight!!!!) sacks, at least 2 turnovers, and you won by how many? 7 points? wow, so impressive. all signs definitely point to a blow out.
    ============================
    You definitely had to “smokesome” to post this.
    The score was 30-14 with 7:25 left in the 4th quarter!
    You idiots that don’t understand football and the schemes that go along with it, really need to quit posting.
    Vikes played a soft zone from the safety they got on. 30-14. The yards piled up and 9 points is in garbage time.
    You really make yourself look like an ass by posting this drek.
    I’m sure it makes you feel better thinking you ‘only” lost by 7. Fact is you were domianted in all facets of that game.
    Keep dreaming you have a chance this season….

    Agreed. I’ve been there too, probably more times than most of the so-called Viking fans on here, and it’s pretty horrible. I say.. If they want a new stadium, they can make one on the cheap simply by tearing the stupid inflatable roof off the Dump.. It’d bring back their long-lost homefield advantage AND air the place out so people can breathe.

    @JimmySmith- Jimmy,Jimmy,Jimmy…why the hate son? Did you find Visanthe Shiancoe photos in your girlfriends diary? Did you reach for the Slap Chop instead of the warm apple pie one night in the dark and have a horrible accident?? Embrace the Vikings and you will feel much better.The Pack are in for a long season.

  63. SpartaChris says: Oct 13, 2009 8:09 PM

    @Bob S- I was saying buillshit to the reason they gave for moving the game. They moved it because Favre = ratings and most people would rather watch Favre return to Green Bay than watch the Eagles/Giants.
    While there may be a legitimate reason for the shift because of baseball, baseball wasn’t their sole motivation. Especially when the Phillies haven’t made it that far yet.

    BeerCheeseSoup- I am the stupid one b/c I don’t know how DeweyA$$wound is…yeah.
    Just so you know, you aren’t a NFL analyst. I think you have clearly identified yourself as the biggest loser on this site by knowing who everybody’s team is that posts. Just so you know, that doesn’t add up to a lot in life.
    Maybe you should find something to do besides post on here all day long. Maybe get a life.
    See, I just read vikings news, not bears news. B/c unlike you, I have a life.

  65. CutlerISaPussy says: Oct 13, 2009 10:21 PM

    Actually Jimmy, you are not stating the facts. So why don’t you pull the cock out of your a$$ and realize that your team is a .500 team. Nothing more. And let me be the first to welcome you and the Pack to the bottom of the NFCN next year. B/c the way TT and MM is taking your team, that is where you are ending up.
    Can’t wait to hear what you guys come up with on Monday.

    “Um – the headline is “Vikings-Packers moves to 4:15 p.m. on November 1.”
    Just how is this a Packers story being invaded by Vikings fans when the Vikings got first billing?”
    I knew what the story was about. I was too busy typing to realize that. I didn’t realize it until after I posted.
    “At least they will finally then back off the only real argument they’ve been able to make the past 2 years — “we were Super Bowl champions when Adrian Peterson was potty training”. ”
    Last time I checked, the Packers had three Vince Lombardi trophies in their trophy case while the Vikings just have cobwebs.

    I laughed for almost 20 minutes when I read that.. You definitely get some points for originality there. I love it.
    That said, wouldn’t it make more sense to make your OWN fans comfortable, instead of the opponent’s? Or are you just outnumbered more often than not? You were the last time I was there…

    (Who cares what CutlerISaPussy says)
    For all you know, I very well may be an NFL analyst, and it’s called a day off. Having extra time on my hands and NOT spending it smoking crack or on a street corner like you doesn’t make me stupid.
    I am plenty successful in life.
    The whole point of this site for us is to take out the stress of our daily lives on oversensitive, easily butthurt cry-to-mommy Purples like yourself, and look, It worked! Again!
    Idiot.

    Does FOX and the NFL want to reimburse me for my plane ticket leaving Green Bay at 5, supposedly after the game? This decision could have been made months ago.

  69. sand0 says: Oct 14, 2009 8:13 AM

    Packers fans will be even drunker. Awesome. I wonder how many trailer homes will go up in flames after Brett dishes out the second slice of humble pie to Ted Thompson and the gang.
    And why are their Packer fan posts whining about how the Vikes are only 5-0 because of their soft schedule? Your underachieving group of slackers was a big part of it. I know you like to only focus on the final score but truth be told the Vikings struggled less in that game than the Cleveland and Detroit games.

  70. Ambrose says: Oct 14, 2009 11:23 AM

    A lot of Viking fans drive over to the game. The late start will not only put them back on the road for a five+ hour drive sometime after 7:00, but the loss will contribute to their weary state-of-mind and make them fall asleep at their desks at work the next morning…except for Chickenfoot..they don’t have desks at McDonald’s.

  71. Chickenfoot says: Oct 14, 2009 12:20 PM

    Glad you are infatuaed with me Ambrose, but i like women.
    I don’t know how you got my e-mail address, but please stop sending me pics and steamy letters, or I will report you to Florio.
    Jesus Ambrose, this is a football debate site, not a gay dating site.

    Well, BeerCheeseCrap, apparently you care what I say b/c you are the one that responded to my post, not the other way around.
    I am SURE you are an analyst for the NFL. Keep telling yourself that.
    And by the looks of it on this site, you must have like…EVERYDAY off. I am sure your posting today and yesterday is just an anomaly. Doesn’t happen all day everyday.
    But hey, who are you trying to convince you are successful, me or you. Cause I could give sh!t less.
    I am just glad to know spend all of your free time like a huge loser scouring this website 24/7.

    anyone who doesn’t get the move and blames Favre obviously hasn’t been to any sporting event in Philly. Imagine a drunken disappointed Eagle croud trying to share parkin, subway, even sidewalk space wit baseball fans on the way in. Lived in Philly last 10 years, not enough police for that, and the flipside is NY fans too, maybe even Sox fans. Some People are just dull
