Saints’ season finale against Buccaneers flexed to 3:25 p.m.

The NFL announced Sunday night that it will flex the New Orleans Saints’ game at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to 3:25 p.m. The matchup between the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons will be at the same time.

Both games were originally scheduled for noon kickoffs, but the league decided to move both to the later time. Per the announcement, keeping the games at the same time was important from a competition standpoint. Both games will air on FOX.

If the Saints (11-4) win Sunday, they’ll claim the NFC South championship, but they can still win the division if they lose and the Falcons (9-6) beat the Panthers (11-4).

The Saints can win their first division crown since 2011 next Sunday.
