NFL moves Chargers-Raiders game, will be seen on NFL Network
NFL fans will get an extra treat on Sunday.
The league announced that the game between the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders in Oakland has been moved from 4:25 p.m. to 11:35 p.m. The game, originally slated to be shown on CBS in select markets, will now be on for everyone on NFL Network. That means places like the Capital Region will see five games on national TV this Sunday instead of the usual four.
Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts, who were going to call the game for CBS, will do so for NFL Network. CBS will still produce the broadcast.
The game will also be carried on the radio by Westwood One. FOX Sports 980 (WOFX-AM) is the Westwood One outlet in the Capital Region, but it's unclear at this time if the station will pick up the game.
The move was necessitated by the Oakland Athletics hosting the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 of the American League division series on Saturday. That game is scheduled to start at 9:07 p.m. The Raiders share the O.co Coliseum with the A’s and the Coliseum requires time to convert back into a football stadium in order to host the game.
