The Raiders have officially announced that their week five matchup against the San Diego Chargers has been pushed back. Kickoff this upcoming Sunday, Oct. 6, will now be at 8:35 p.m. PST at O.Co Coliseum.
The game had to be moved back seven hours from the original 1:25 p.m. PST start time in order to accommodate the Coliseum's conversion from baseball to football, as the Oakland Athletics play a postseason game at home on Saturday, Oct. 5.
Reports state that it takes the crew two twelve-hour shifts to re-assemble the stands that are taken out of the stadium to create center field for the Athletics.
The game will still air over the local broadcasts, assuming it is sold-out, but will also be aired on NFL Network nationwide.
