Dec. 26 Seahawks-Bucs game flexed to 4:15



The  NFL is taking notice of the Bucs' playoff push.

The league announced today the Dec. 26 game against the Seahawks in Tampa has been moved from 1 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. under the league's flex scheduling policy.

This is the third Bucs game the league has moved to a more attractive television slot, following last week's Atlanta-Tampa Bay game and the Bucs-Ravens the previous week. The Bucs are just a hair out of NFC's final wildcard spot while the Seahawks in a fight for the NFC West title.

The other 4:15 game on FOX that afternoon is Giants-Packers, a big matchup between popular teams with playoff implications that likely will be broadcast to most of the country.
