The New England Patriots won't play four consecutive night games, after all.
The Patriots' Week 15 road game against the Las Vegas Raiders, originally scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 18, at 8:20 p.m. ET, instead will kick off at 4:05 p.m. ET, the NFL confirmed Monday.
Scott Zolak initially reported the news Monday on 98.5 The Sports Hub's "Zolak & Bertrand."

That Patriots-Raiders matchup had plenty of juice entering the season, as it marked Josh McDaniels' first regular-season game against his former boss, Bill Belichick. Both teams have underwhelmed this season, however; New England sits eighth in the AFC at 6-6 while Las Vegas is 10th at 5-7.
Meanwhile, the New York Giants and Washington Commanders -- who will replace Patriots-Raiders on NBC's "Sunday Night Football" in Week 15 -- are neck-and-neck in the NFC East at 7-4-1 and 7-5-1, respectively, and just came off a 20-20 tie in Week 13.
Boston fans will have plenty to watch that Sunday afternoon, as the Celtics host the Orlando Magic at 3 p.m. ET at TD Garden on the 18th.
