NFL.com is saying 6:30, I've heard 6:38 to be sharp.
All I know is I'm getting up nice and early tomorrow morning to pre-game...even though I'll be watching the game indoors, I'll be wearing the exact same clothes I wore to the Pats-Colts game (in 10 degree weather), just to make sure that my boys kick some Eagles butt.
And Falcon, congrats on getting Crennel as your new head coach in about 24 hours.

It has been historically listed as 6:17 or 6:18 for as long as I can remember, but that is never the case as the pregame festivities always set it back around 10 minutes. If you want to avoid the hoopla and just watch some football 6:30 would be a good time to tune in.

With all this fuss from the TV networks as to whether the game should start at 6:16 or 6:17 or 6:18, part of me wishes that the players and refs wouls just mill about for four or five minutes so as to throw them completely off. What the hell does a minute or two matter? Heck, most people's clocks have at least a minute error, so they'll have to tune in a bit earlier anyway if they want to be sure of seeing the kickoff.
7 billion, one nation, imagination...it's a beautiful day
