That marks the second straight week the Saints have been flexed into more of a featured time slot. Their Week 14 game against the Carolina Panthers was moved into the Sunday night slot. And it’s possible their Week 16 game at the Panthers could be moved, as well.
The Saints are also the NFL’s featured attraction tonight, playing on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” at the Seattle Seahawks (10-1). The Saints haven’t had a traditional noon kickoff since Week 9 at the New York Jets.
