The hottest team in the NFL continues to get a bigger national spotlight for television, and a third straight Bucs game has been flexed to a later kickoff, with the Dec. 24 game at New Orleans now kicking off at 4:25 p.m. ET.

That could force some Bucs fans to change their Christmas Eve plans a bit, but it shows the popularity of the Bucs, who were bumped to 4:25 for Sunday's 16-11 win against the Saints in Tampa, and were promoted to prime time for this Sunday's 8:30 kickoff at the Cowboys.

Tampa Bay's five-game winning streak is the team's longest since the 2002 Super Bowl championship season, and it matches the Lions for the longest active streak in the NFL.
