Chargers at Raiders: Kickoff pushed back to 8:35pm PDT

USA TODAY Sports

Due to a scheduling conflict with the MLB playoffs, Sunday's game between the Raiders and Chargers has been pushed back 7 hours and switched from CBS to the NFL Network.

Well, that's odd. The San Diego Chargers will travel north to Oakland this week to take on the Raiders, and they'll be playing the game after the conclusion of Sunday Night Football.

The game was originally going to be on CBS, but has been moved to NFL Network (I imagine to avoid interfering with CBS's prime time programming?).

The news comes out today because MLB announced the playoff schedule today, which has the Oakland Athletics playing a home game on Saturday. Due to the time it takes to convert the O.co Coliseum from a baseball stadium to a football stadium, the game could not start at its normal time.

I'm not how this will affect the body-clocks of the players, but it should affect them all equally. That being said, don't be surprised if this ends up being a sloppy game played be sleepy players. Hopefully, Mike McCoy can move practice back a few hours this week to try and offset that.
