The final Week 13 NFL schedule was announced today. The Atlanta at Tampa Bay game on Sunday, Dec. 5 has been moved from 1 p.m. ET to 4:15 p.m. ET on FOX while the originally scheduled Pittsburgh at Baltimore Sunday night game on NBC will remain in place.
The NFL will utilize "flexible scheduling" on Sundays in Weeks 11-17. Flexible scheduling will ensure quality matchups in all NFL Sunday time slots in those weeks and give teams a chance to play their way onto primetime and into the late-afternoon 4:15 p.m. ET time slot on CBS and FOX. Under Head coach Mike Smith, the Falcons are 6-3 in games starting at 4 p.m. ET or later including wins over the Baltimore Ravens and St. Louis Rams this season.
