The NFL is taking a stab at eliminating that annoying overlap between the early and late afternoon slate of games. Those NFL games that start at 3:15 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) -- for the Kansas City Chiefs, usually when visiting the west coast -- will now be moved back to 3:25 p.m.
The idea is to cut down on the overlap between the early and late games. We've all been there -- you're watching an early game and it's a tight game nearing the end when the FOX or CBS has to switch to another game. Extending the start time by 10 minutes will go a long way to eliminating some of that overlap.
Good move by the NFL. This will affect a decent percentage of games and it's only a 10 minute bump.
