NFL switches Buccaneers-Raiders game to protect “SNF” broadcast

The National Football League has moved the scheduled October 25 Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Las Vegas Raiders game from its original evening kickoff time to an afternoon slot in order to protect the primetime Sunday Night Football window on NBC Sports.

The Raiders are suffering a minor Covid-19 outbreak in the team and, while it is expected that the Buccaneers-Raiders game at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, will still go ahead on the 25th, the NFL does not want to take any chances with a showcase primetime broadcast window.
