The National Football League has the oddest game schedule of its season today.
Typically, the 1 p.m. E.T. window is by far the busiest on NFL Sundays. The majority of the week’s games will take place in that window. Then, you’ll have a couple of games in the 4 p.m. E.T. window, followed by one game on Sunday night and one game on Monday evening.
That’s not the case today, though.
On this NFL Sunday, the 4 p.m. E.T. window is absolutely packed with games. There are five games set to be played in the 1 p.m. E.T. window and six games set to be played in the 4 p.m. E.T. window. We can’t remember the last time that was the case.
Why is it the case?
“For the first time since at least 1998, CBS won’t be airing a single game in the early afternoon time slot. With the final round of the Masters scheduled to air until 3 p.m. on Sunday, that means there won’t be room to air any 1 p.m. NFL games on CBS. All five games in the early afternoon window will be aired on Fox,” CBS Sports reports.
The Masters is set to come on the air at 10 a.m. E.T. on Sunday morning. The major tournament should wrap up by sometime this afternoon. If it goes later than 4 p.m. E.T., it’ll finish on ABC.
