Start time for Titans-Vikings pushed back

The Minnesota Vikings have shifted the time of their kickoff for their Week 5 game with the Tennessee Titans to the late afternoon.

No, the Vikings have not been flexed into a national game just yet. But Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the Vikings have changed the time of their Oct. 7 game from noon (CST) to 3:25 p.m. in order to not conflict with the Twin Cities Marathon.

A lot of times, the NFL will find a way to schedule teams on the road when major events like marathons are going. In this case, they found a way to work around it.
