The NFL announced on Thursday that late afternoon doubleheader games will be moved back ten minutes this season to avoid overlapping games.  This will move the Denver Broncos‘ previously scheduled 2:15 p.m. (MT) games to 2:25 p.m. (MT).

In the past, fans watching from home have missed the beginning of late doubleheader games when the earlier game lasts longer than expected.  The NFL is hoping the new kickoff times will prevent that from happening this season.

Four Broncos games will be affected — Week 3 vs. Houston (2:25 p.m. MT), Week 5 at New England (4:25 p.m. ET), Week 11 vs. San Diego (2:25 p.m. MT) and Week 17 vs. Kansas City (2:25 p.m. MT).  See the full schedule here.

In addition, Denver’s Week 15 game at Baltimore on December 16th (currently scheduled for 1 p.m. ET), is eligible to be flexed to either 4:15 p.m., or Sunday Night Football.  All of Denver’s games following Week 11 are eligible to be flexed to SNF this season.

Talking about all of these games makes us even more excited for the season to arrive.  72 days, 21 hours, 5 minutes, 38 seconds and 238 milliseconds!
