NFL Moves Sunday Doubleheader Kickoffs Back to 4:25 p.m. EST

Around The League

The NFL is making a change to how we watch on football on Sundays.

The league announced Thursday that it is losing its 4:15 p.m. ET Sunday kickoffs to 4:25 p.m. to reduce overlap with the 1 p.m. games. The 4:05 p.m. ET games will remain unchanged.

The move is to reduce the instances in which fans miss the end of the 1 p.m. ET telecast because they receive the opening kickoff of their home team’s late afternoon games.
