4:15 Kickoff

Game Time Changed

December 19, 2009|By Jamison Hensley

Because of the expected heavy snowfall, the Ravens announced that Sunday's game time at M&T Bank Stadium will move to 4:15 p.m.

Officials from Baltimore City cited safety reasons in recommending the time change to the team and the NFL, the Ravens said.

"That gives the city more time to clear the streets and other passageways around the stadium," Ravens president Dick Cass said. "It also gives us more time to clear the stadium of snow."

The Ravens have 700 workers at the stadium ready to help clear the snow before game time. They are being housed at the stadium club levels.

The game was originally set to kick off at 1 p.m.

Team officials said stadium parking lots will open at 11 a.m. and stadium gates will open at 2:45 p.m. The game will be shown on Channel 45.
