Football fans, your bed times will be a little earlier for regular season night games.

A report from Ben Volin of the Boston Globe says that the NFL will be starting its night games a few minutes earlier than last year.

This is a far cry from the past, when back in the 1960's, primetime broadcasts would start at 9:30 p.m. ET, and for decades starting in the 1970's when Monday Night Football began at 9 p.m. ET.

It means bosses may get more productivity from their workers the next day, and perhaps a little less coffee downed at the office.
