Seahawks look into moving Week 6 Cardinals game due to potential Mariners playoff conflict

The Mariners play in their first ALDS in two decades this weekend, but Game 4 might compete for NFL viewership

Update: The Seattle Seahawks announced they will move their Sunday game against the Cardinals from 4:05 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET if the Mariners-Astros American League Division Series goes to four games. This decision is meant to avoid too much overlap with the 3:07 p.m. start scheduled for ALDS Game 4, which will be hosted in Seattle.

This week, the Seattle Mariners will play in their first American League Division Series in 21 years after breaking the longest playoff drought in Major League Baseball. They begin the best-of-5 series against the Houston Astros on Tuesday, and if the series goes past three games, there might be a local conflict on Sunday with the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks are scheduled to host the Arizona Cardinals at 4:05 p.m. ET on Sunday, and Game 4 of the ALDS is set to start at 3:07 p.m ET the same time at T-Mobile Park. The Mariners stadium is across the street from the Seahawks stadium.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that the team is in talks to potentially move their matchup with the Cardinals to earlier in the day to avoid crossing over with Game 4.

Game 4 is not a guarantee in the series.
