MLB playoffs could affect Jaguars-Raiders Week 7 game

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

There is a possibility that Week 7's game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Oakland Raiders could be affected if the Oakland Athletics make a deep playoff run.

The Week 7 game between the Oakland Raiders and the Jacksonville Jaguars could be affected by what goes on in the MLB playoffs. Currently, the seventh game of the American League Championship Series is scheduled for Oct. 21.

If the Oakland Athletics advance that far and have home field advantage, they would host Game 7 on the same day that the Raiders are scheduled to play the Jaguars at O.co Coliseum.

One option that could come up if the dates do conflict is moving the Raiders' game to Monday Night Football, according to a tweet by Mark Long of the Associated Press:

Rumor going around that Jaguars-Raiders game could get moved to MNF if Oakland A's beat Texas Rangers today

If the Athletics do not win the division, the game will not be affected. A spokesperson for the NFL says that the league is monitoring the situation to see what happens.
