NFL changes start times of five Cardinals games

The start time of five Cardinals games this season has
changed.

The NFL, in an effort to ensure TV viewers do not leave
the end of one game to join another, has moved the kickoff
time for Sunday late afternoon doubleheader games on both
CBS and FOX from 4:15 ET to 4:25 ET. Start times for games
not part of network doubleheaders will not change.

Five Cardinals games are affected:

September 9 vs. Seattle
November 25 vs. St. Louis
December 9 @ Seattle
December 23 vs. Chicago
December 30 @ San Francisco

According to a press release from the NFL, “In researching
the kickoff time shift, the NFL analyzed games from the
2009-11 seasons and found that 44 games required part of
the
audience to be switched to a mandatory doubleheader game
kickoff. With a 4:25 PM ET kickoff time, that number that
would have been reduced by 66 percent to only 15 games.”
