Lions Week 6 game vs. Buccaneers flexed to later start

USA Today

For most of the last decade or so, the Detroit Lions have been a fixture in the 1 p.m ET viewing window. Fans accustomed to the routine have been in for some radical change already this year. And with the ongoing success of the team, the changes keep on coming.

The Lions will not be playing in that standard window in Week 6 any longer. Detroit’s trip to Tampa Bay in two weeks has been flexed from the 1 p.m. slot to a 4:25 p.m. kickoff by FOX, who will broadcast the game.


Both the Lions and Buccaneers are in first place after Week 4 with matching 3-1 records. It’s an appealing matchup that will garner a bigger potential audience with less competition in the more prominent viewing window.
