Bucs' Dec. 11 home game vs. Saints flexed to 4:25



Ah, relevant December football.

With the Bucs surging to a 6-5 record after three straight wins, their next home game -- Dec. 11 against the Saints -- has been flexed to a 4:25 p.m. kickoff at Raymond James Stadium, giving Tampa Bay a larger audience as the Bucs seek their first playoff appearance since 2007.

The news was posted by the Saints on Tuesday morning -- with the shift, the Bucs are down to seven 1 p.m. kickoffs in 16 games this season, and the Dec. 18 game at Dallas is now another candidate to be flexed from its current 1 p.m. kickoff as well.
