No flex for Packers-Lions game

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Greetings from Lambeau Field, where the lights are on and night has already fallen. Before we get started on this game between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears, let's pass along some information on the Packers' Week 17 game.

The NFL decided against flexing the Packers-Detroit Lions matchup to Sunday night, and the game will remain a 1 p.m. ET kickoff next Sunday. That means no late-night New Year's Eve partying for you and yours. You'll have another chance in 2013.

We're expecting inactive lists at about 6:50 p.m. ET. Back in a bit.
