Kansas City’s early season success is being treated as a must-see television, apparently.
The NFL announced the Chiefs October 20th game against the Houston Texas has been moved back to 3:25 p.m.. CBS will still broadcast the game. Here is Twitter proof of the time change.

Moving the game to 3:25 means more eyeballs on the Chiefs nationally, which is cool, but most importantly it means the Chiefs are playing really good football. Kansas City has made itself relevant very quickly after being the worst team in the NFL less than a year ago. The TV move only furthers the notion that the perception of the Chiefs is that they are for real, which is the kind of affirmation Kansas City fans need from time to time.
It wouldn’t a surprise if more games are shuffled around. Given the way the Chiefs are playing, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see one or two of their November and December games to be moved to a Sunday night slot. Denver’s trip to Arrowhead on December 1st and the Indy game on December 22 would be the most likely to be bumped to Sunday night.
