The Texans-Chiefs game, which had previously been scheduled for a 1 p.m. ET kickoff, has now been moved to 4:25 p.m. ET, 3:25 local time in Kansas City.
Moves like this frequently happen as the season goes on, primarily to allow better games to reach larger TV audiences. At the time that the schedule was released, the two CBS games in the late afternoon window were Browns-Packers and Ravens-Steelers. Now that we’re four weeks into the season and the Browns are 2-2, the Packers are 1-2, the Ravens are 2-2 and the Steelers are 0-4, those games don’t look as appealing as they did when the schedule came out.
