Packers-Colts flexed from 1 p.m. to 4:25 p.m.

More of the nation is going to get a big inter-conference matchup.

Green Bay Packers v Los Angeles Chargers

The NFL announced a flex schedule change on Monday for Week 11. On November 22, the Green Bay Packers vs. Indianapolis Colts game will move from 1 p.m. ET to 4:25 pm ET on FOX. No other games are being moved.

The move to 4:25 p.m. will give more people a chance to watch the game. In the 1 p.m. slot it would be competing with Lions-Panthers, Eagles-Browns, and Falcons-Saints on FOX. In the 4:25 p.m. slot, it is only competing with Cowboys-Vikings. It will get a bigger audience, and given how bad the Cowboys are, it could get a particularly bigger audience.

The Packers are 6-2 and have a game and a half lead on the Chicago Bears in the NFC North. The Colts are 5-3 and in second place in the AFC South, a game back of the Tennessee Titans. This game will impact the common opponents tiebreaker, but otherwise is more just a potential Super Bowl preview featuring two long-time veteran QBs in Aaron Rodgers and Philip Rivers. The Colts have a tougher road to the Super Bowl than the Packers, but it should still be a fun game.
