The playoffs in Major League Baseball will be starting this week and one NFL team is already impacted. According to the Oakland Raiders official team site, the Raiders have moved the kickoff of their game back seven hours in order to accommodate the conversion from a baseball stadium on Saturday while the A’s host a game to a football stadium on Sunday.

From the Raiders official site-

Kickoff for the Oakland Raiders versus San Diego Chargers game at Coliseum on Sunday, October 6 has been moved to 8:35 p.m.

The game was moved back over seven hours from an original 1:25 p.m. kickoff to accommodate the Coliseum’s conversion from a baseball configuration to football due to the Oakland A’s postseason game on Saturday evening, October 5.

The game will air on NFL Network nationally, as well as an over-the-air station (TBA) locally, if sold out per NFL blackout rules.

NFL fans watching at home will now get the usual slate of 1 and 4 pm games along with the Sunday night national game, they can now tune into the NFL Network at 11:30 pm EST to watch yet another game if the San Francisco 49ers/Houston Texans game is a blowout.
