The NFL has decided that more people should be able to see the Saints and Panthers play on Dec. 6.

Previously scheduled to start at noon, the game has been moved back to a 3:25 p.m. kickoff.

If New Orleans is going to compete for a playoff spot, it will likely need to win the rest of its games, including this date against Carolina.

The Panthers, meanwhile, are currently undefeated and could be looking to continue that run when they come to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Saints next play the Houston Texans on the road, while Carolina will play the Cowboys in Dallas.
