The NFL today changed the time of the Steelers game against New Orleans in Heinz Field on Nov. 12. Kickoff now will be at 4:15 p.m., instead of 1 p.m. It will be broadcast on FOX.
The league also announced that it had moved the Chicago Bears-New York Giants game that Sunday afternoon to 8:15 p.m. at night, the first move in the league's new flexible schedule that allows the NFL to move afternoon games to Sunday night to be shown on NBC-TV.
