The kickoff for the Jets' regular-season game with the Tennessee Titans at the Meadowlands on Sept. 27 has been rescheduled for 1 p.m. ET.
The Jets' home game that day had been announced earlier this week for a 4:15 p.m. start time. However, the change to 1 p.m. was made today because Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement, begins at sundown on Sept. 27.
Jets owner Woody Johnson said in a statement:
"By changing the time of the Tennessee game from 4:15 p.m. to 1 p.m., the NFL has provided the best compromise to resolve our scheduling conflict. I want to thank Commissioner Goodell and Howard Katz for quickly responding to our request to accommodate our fans of Jewish faith."
No other changes to the NFL schedule were announced.
As a result of this schedule change, the Jets-Titans game and the Giants' game at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be televised head-to-head on different networks in the New York market starting at 1 p.m. ET on Sept. 27.
