NFL alters game times

Fri., June 29, 2012

Tim Tebow (in photo) was leading the Denver Broncos on yet another improbable last-minute comeback, and fans in New York, Dallas and other football-mad markets didn’t get to see the end. The NFL announced a scheduling change Thursday aimed at preventing such moments. The league is shifting the start time of the second game of its Sunday TV doubleheaders by 10 minutes. The late afternoon matchups on CBS and Fox will kick off at 1:25 p.m. PT instead of 1:15. Late games not on that week’s doubleheader network will still start at 1:05. Because of the networks’ contractual obligations, fans in the past would sometimes miss the end of the early telecast or the beginning of the late one if the 10 a.m. game ran long. – Associated Press
