Thursday night's kickoff time

In order that you may appropriately plan your respective tailgates, we bring you news today that Thursday night's kickoff time has been moved from 7:30 to 8 p.m. ET.  The massive clash on ESPN2 will now include a half-hour pregame show.  Big games call for big... pregame shows.  Gates to RFK Stadium will now open at 6:30 p.m. 

I don't need to tell you how important this game is.  Our club is in a must-win position as it tries to make playoffs, while New England is battling Chicago for second place in the Eastern Conference (they're currently tied in the standings with 43 points apiece) and the right to host the second leg of the two-game series in the first round of playoffs.  

If you don't yet have tickets, check out the ESPN2 'Pack the House' ticket offer.  It's a pretty snazzy deal.
