Saints-Rams shifted to late afternoon kickoff

The NFL announced Monday that the Saints’ Week 15 game at the St. Louis Rams on Dec. 15 in the Edward Jones Dome was switched from a noon start to 3:25 p.m.

In conjunction with flex scheduling for Sunday night games on NBC, the league has the option of changing kickoff times to accommodate telecast patterns on Fox and CBS.
