Default MLB WS causes time changes for some Nov. 1 NFL games

Favre’s Nov. 1 visit to Lambeau moved to 4:15 p.m. ET
Posted: October 13th, 2009 | NFL.com Staff | Tags: Brett Favre, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles

Brett Favre is on the move — again.

The Nov. 1 kickoff times for the Giants-Eagles and Vikings-Packers games have been flipped because of logistical issues in Philadelphia should the Phillies be in the World Series, the NFL announced Tuesday.

The Giants now will play the Eagles at 1 p.m. ET. The Vikings-Packers game, which represents Favre’s first trip back to Lambeau Field since he left Green Bay before the 2008 season, will begin at 4:15 p.m. ET. Both games will be shown on FOX.

The game-time changes were made prior to the outcome of baseball’s National League Championship Series to give fans of all four NFL teams involved as much advance notice as possible and to accommodate FOX broadcast patterns.

In the event of a World Series game in Philadelphia on Nov. 1, moving the Giants-Eagles kickoff three hours earlier will help ease the burden on city service and law enforcement personnel who work at the two Philadelphia stadiums and staff the parking lots shared by the teams.

MLB should schedule around the NFL games since WS games aren't set until after the NFL schedule is

That's brilliant planning.... Why should MLB care what the NFL does? It's WS against week 10.

Because the MLB doesnt even know who is going to be in the WS right now and if it ends up with a team that would have a conflict of schedule with in the NFL then maybe they should just push the game to Monday or play at a different time.

I know the WS is obviously a bigger game then an NFL regular season game but the NFL's schedule is already set, the MLB shouldn't expect other leagues to bow to their command, its not gonna kill anyone to have the game one day sooner or later or in a different time slot.
