The NFC North championship game between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers has been moved to a later time slot by FOX.  Originally being scheduled for a 1pm ET kickoff, the network announced this week that it had been moved to 4:25pm ET.

Commentary will be provided by Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.

Right now, the weather forecast shows a high around 30 degrees, with a 30% chance of snow, which could add another interesting factor to the game.  Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could be returning for the first time since fracturing his collarbone on November 4th in Green Bay's first game against the Bears.

The winner of this game will claim the NFC North title, and the 3rd/ 4th seed (depending on other games) for the NFC in the 2013 playoffs.  The last time Chicago won the North, they ended up advancing all the way to the NFC Championship Game, where they were beaten 21-14 by Green Bay.

With the game being moved to 4:25pm ET, does this affect anyone's plans for Sunday?
