Because of the Oakland Athletics making it into the Major League Baseball playoffs, the Oakland Raiders will now be forced to move their home game on that date against the San Diego Chargers, to 11:35 p.m. EST on Sunday night.

Here is the full statement from the Raiders:

"Kickoff for the Oakland Raiders versus San Diego Chargers game at Coliseum on Sunday, October 6 has been moved to 8:35 p.m.The game was moved back over seven hours from an original 1:25 p.m. kickoff to accommodate the Coliseum’s conversion from a baseball configuration to football due to the Oakland A’s postseason game on Saturday evening, October 5.The game will air on NFL Network nationally, as well as an over-the-air station (TBA) locally, if sold out per NFL blackout rules."

Speaking of the Raiders, Head coach Dennis Allen said quarterback Terrelle Pryor didn’t play Sunday because he still showed symptoms from the concussion he suffered against the Denver Broncos, and that he could play this Sunday against the Chargers if he makes it through the week with no recurring symptoms.
