Final Lambeau kickoffs moved to 3:15 p.m.

Good news for Packers fans with tickets to the remaining home games. You've got more time to sleep or to, ummmm, enjoy the pregame festivities. <p>

The NFL before Monday's victory against St. Louis announced that the team's two remaining home games would be 3:15 p.m. starts instead of noon kickoffs.

The Packers' final home games are Dec. 12 against Detroit (televised by Fox) and Dec. 19 against Jacksonville (televised by CBS).

The Packers also play at 3:15 p.m. Sunday at Philadelphia, meaning the Packers get the plum afternoon spot on three consecutive weekends. With consecutive prime-time games before that and a Christmas Eve nationally televised game at Minnnesota, the Packers will be the featured team on six consecutive weekends.

"It's just another indication that we're a popular draw," Packers president Bob Harlan said. "Every time we're on, the ratings are strong. As long as we've got Brett Favre, the ratings are going to be strong. I think that's another factor."

Here is Green Bay's remaining schedule

3:15 p.m. Sun., Dec. 5 at Philadelphia

3:15 p.m. Sun., Dec. 12 home vs. Detroit
