Though a West Coast game would end at 9 pm local time, giving people enough time to go out. I understand why they didn't book one....
IIRC college playoffs were on NYE last year and ratings were poor....

Smart to put the the saints and panthers game at the same time. Panthers could still win that division if somehow the saints lose at the bucs.

It was the last 2 years and yes they were atrocious. The CFP bends over backwards for the Rose Bowl. The Rose Bowl owns New Year’s Day (unless on a Sunday) so when the Rose Bowl is not hosting a playoff game, the playoffs are the night before - which is stupid.

This year the Rose Bowl gets a playoff game so it isn’t a problem. I hope they change that rule by next year though.

These game moves to 4:25 gives the Pats-rats game an excellent chance of being a main early CBS Game. Texans vs Clots will be regional for sure. That leaves the Browns vs Squealers. Browns are 0-15 so there's a good chance!:)

Wow, NFL actually makes a smart move.

We get to see the Pats at 1 then the 4pm window will be a great day to end NFL Redzone season on.
