ALAMEDA – The starting time for the Raiders game against the San Diego Chargers has been pushed back more than seven hours so that there’s enough time to convert the field from a baseball configuration.
The A’s play their second playoff game on Saturday night at the Coliseum. The Raiders and Chargers were scheduled to start at 1:25 p.m. Sunday. That didn’t leave the grounds crew enough time to convert the field to a football setup.
Therefore, the Raiders-Chargers game will begin at 8:35 p.m. Also, it will be broadcast on NFL Network, even if the game doesn’t sellout in advance of the league deadline.
