Steelers-Bengals game time changed

Posted Oct 20, 2017

Kickoff for the game has been switched to 4:25 p.m.

Kickoff for the Steelers-Bengals game originally scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 22 at 1 p.m. at Heinz Field has been changed to a 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff time.

The Steelers-Bengals game will be telecast by CBS.

The NFL made the change as a part of the league’s flex scheduling policy.  

NFL FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING
“Flexible scheduling” will be used in Weeks 10-15 and 17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-9, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-15, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time.

Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights. A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game.
