Change of Plans!

The Associated Press released this nugget of information on the Carolina Panthers trip to Atlanta on November 23rd.

The NFL has moved the kickoff time for the Atlanta Falcons’ home game against the Carolina Panthers on Nov. 23 to 4:15 p.m.

The game originally was set for a 1 p.m. kickoff. The kickoff time was moved back by the league on Monday so the game can be televised nationally by Fox.

The league has a “flexible scheduling” plan for Weeks 11-17 of the season so networks can arrange for quality Sunday matchups.

Carolina leads the NFC South division with a 7-2 record. Atlanta is 6-3 following its 34-20 win over New Orleans on Sunday. The Falcons will play host to Denver next Sunday.

If you’re making the trip, be sure to plan accordingly.  You know how traffic is on I-85 in the middle of the day even on Sundays in Atlanta.  Leave for the game early to avoid the inevitable bumper car rally that almost always ensues.

    Yes, it does seem to be more important by the week.  Let’s hope the Panthers get their act together before they head for the dome.
