Last year, the NFL experimented with playing the games earlier in the day. The Falcons played the Lions at 1:30 p.m. London time and 9:30 a.m. Eastern time. That was the earliest start in NFL history. This game will tie that mark. The duel between the Jets and Dolphins on October 4 will also start at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time. In the history of the NFL's International Series in London, this will be the first time that two games in the same season are played that early.
