The Green Bay Packers' second preseason game just got a little earlier.

Due to a scheduling conflict, the Pittsburgh Steelers announced the Aug. 23 game will be played at noon CDT. The game originally was scheduled for 7 p.m.

With the Pittsburgh Pirates moving their game from 12:35 p.m. to 7:08 p.m. for Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN, the Packers and Steelers will play in the afternoon, due to the proximity of Heinz Field to PNC Park.

The Packers have lost four of their last five meetings against the Steelers, with the exception being Super Bowl XLV, a 31-25 victory. Green Bay's last trip to Pittsburgh was Dec. 20, 2009, a dramatic 37-36 loss.
