Wake Up with the NFL in the East 12/4/13
LONDON - Pro football fans in the east will now be able to enjoy something those on the west coast have had for years, an NFL game Sunday morning.
The NFL has announced that the game between the Falcons and Lions next season in London will start at 1:30 p.m. local time, or 9:30 a.m. in the east. That said, the change means the game will now start at 6:30 a.m. in the western states.
The league says the switch will make it easier for a large global audience to tune in, and create an unprecedented fourth game window for American viewers that Sunday.
