NFL changes time for Raiders’ decisive game against Chargers

Updated January 2, 2022 - 8:53 pm

The Raiders’ path to a playoff berth will include a worthy stage.

The NFL announced late Sunday that the Raiders’ regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Chargers on Jan. 9 has been flexed to “Sunday Night Football.” The kickoff at Allegiant Stadium is scheduled for 5:20 p.m. The game will be televised on KSNV-3.

The winner will make the postseason as a wild card in the AFC. The loser would need help, mainly in the form of Jacksonville upsetting Indianapolis.

The Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos now will play in a Saturday afternoon doubleheader (1:30 p.m.), followed by the Dallas Cowboys playing at the Philadelphia Eagles (5:15 p.m.).
