Bengals-Colts start time moved

Posted: 2 p.m.



Kickoff time for the Bengals' Nov. 20 home game against the Indianapolis Colts has been moved to 4:15 p.m., the NFL announced today. The game originally was scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff.

"Kickoff times are occasionally changed to help our network TV partners maximize ratings," said Greg Aiello, NFL Vice President of Public Relations. "In this case, CBS wanted to take the Bengals-Colts game and move it into the national doubleheader window on Nov. 20. It shapes up as a very attractive game between teams with two of the league's best records, and this switch will allow it to be shown to as many fans as possible across the country."
