Lions-Falcons 2014 game in London will kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET
Next season's game in London between Atlanta and Detroit will kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET, marking the earliest a game has ever been televised in America.
Say hello to Sunday morning football. The NFL announced on Wednesday that the Falcons and Lions will kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET next season when the two teams play in London. Atlanta will be the home team for the Week 8 game being played on Oct. 26.
Any Falcons or Lions fans on the West Coast will have to wake up extra early that day because a 9:30 a.m. kickoff in the east means a 6:30 a.m. kickoff in the Pacific time zone. The game will kick off at 1:30 London time and air on Fox.
The Lions-Falcons game will mark the first time in NFL history that a game has kicked off at 9:30 a.m. ET. "We are excited about playing three regular-season games in the UK for the first time and debuting a new game time that we expect to be a hit with fans on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world," NFL chief marketing officer Mark Waller said.
The first game of the London series will take place in Week 4 next season with the Raiders hosting the Dolphins on CBS. That game will kick off at 1 p.m. ET, the same time that all London games have kicked off since the international series started in 2007.
