Raiders/Chargers game to start close to midnight.
Fans of the Oakland Raiders or San Diego Chargers that live on the East Coast may have a hard time watching their team play next Sunday. No, not because the Raiders are horrible or because the Chargers have resigned Ryan Leaf or anything.
It’s because of baseball.
The Oakland Athletics share the Oakland Coliseum with the Raiders, and after winning the AL West for the second season in a row they will be hosting the ALDS Saturday night. According to the Raiders the field would not be ready to play football on at 4:25 PM ET/1:25 PM PT.
So they bumped the start time back to 11:35 PM ET/8:25 PM PT.
Yes, that is an NFL game not starting till almost midnight.
Hey, at least it will be broadcast on the NFL Network now; before it would have been a regional broadcast at best.
