Week 7 Texans, Chiefs start time moved


The Houston Texans’ game at the Kansas City Chiefs later this season has been changed.

The game, which will take place on Sunday, Oct. 20 during Week 7, was originally scheduled for a 1 p.m. EST start, but the NFL announced today the game time has been moved back to 4:25 p.m. EST.

Houston and Kansas City will be aired by CBS. It is being reported the game was switched due to accommodate regional broadcast patterns.

Entering Week 5, the Texans are 2-2 and the Chiefs are 4-0 under new head coach Andy Reid.

The Sunday Night Football game that week is Denver at Indianapolis where Peyton Manning will make his return to Indianapolis for the first time since being released by the Colts.

The last time the two teams faced was in 2010 where the Texans defeated the Chiefs, 35-31. The Texans have won the past two meetings, and lead the overall series 3-2. The last time the Chiefs defeated the Texans was Nov. 20, 2005 by a 41-17 score in Houston. Kansas City won the very first meeting on Sept. 21, 2003 by a 42-14 score, also in Houston.
