Favre’s Nov. 1 visit to Lambeau moved to 4:15 p.m. ET

Brett Favre is on the move — again.

The Nov. 1 kickoff times for the Giants-Eagles and Vikings-Packers games have been flipped because of logistical issues in Philadelphia should the Phillies be in the World Series, the NFL announced Tuesday.

The Giants now will play the Eagles at 1 p.m. ET. The Vikings-Packers game, which represents Favre’s first trip back to Lambeau Field since he left Green Bay before the 2008 season, will begin at 4:15 p.m. ET. Both games will be shown on FOX.

The game-time changes were made prior to the outcome of baseball’s National League Championship Series to give fans of all four NFL teams involved as much advance notice as possible and to accommodate FOX broadcast patterns.

In the event of a World Series game in Philadelphia on Nov. 1, moving the Giants-Eagles kickoff three hours earlier will help ease the burden on city service and law enforcement personnel who work at the two Philadelphia stadiums and staff the parking lots shared by the teams.
