A’s Playoff Schedule Forcing Chargers-Raiders To Play Night Game

OAKLAND (CBS/AP) – This weekend’s game between the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders has been moved to a night game because of the baseball playoffs.

The Raiders said Monday that kickoff for Sunday’s game will be at 8:35 p.m. PDT instead of the originally scheduled 1:25 p.m. game time.

The reason for the switch is the Oakland Athletics are playing Game 2 of their division series on Saturday night and it takes too long to convert the Coliseum from baseball to football to play an afternoon game. The Raiders are the only NFL team that still plays in a stadium shared by a Major League Baseball team.

The game will be televised by NFL Network instead of CBS.
