FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The Jets got bounced out of a prime-time appearance, learning Monday their Dec. 23 home game against the Chargers has been flexed to a 1 p.m. kickoff.
It was originally scheduled for 8:20 p.m. on Sunday Night Football. The 49ers-Seahawks game will replace the Jets in prime time.
This works to the Jets' benefit. Historically, it's difficult for West Coast teams to come east and play in the early time slot. The Jets beat the Chargers 27-21 in a 1 p.m. start last October.
