    Does anyone know why they moved the game back to 4:15pm? The weather is supposed to get worse as the day/evening progresses. It would have made FAR more sense to keep it at 1:00pm. What is with these crackpots?

    The change was made at least a month ago. I think we wish they'd change it back, but I think it's too late.

    Polian's weather machine doesn't work as well in full daylight.

    The weather is not a factor because they make the decision a few weeks in advance. This is a CBS double-header week and they wanted most of the nation to get the game with the undefeated team, which is why its at 4:15.

    The game was never "moved back." It was originally scheduled for 1 PM and was flexed to 4:15 a month ago.

    The point was to get more viewers for this game, not to have the most ideal weather conditions so the Patriots can put up more points. :rolleyes:

    True, I just think Football is a day game. I'm getting sick of late afternoon/night games. Money greedy people suck.
