One Week 6 NFL matchup may have a different start time than currently listed.

On Monday, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll notified media members that the Seahawks and Mariners were exploring options to move their game in order to avoid a time conflict with a potential Mariners ALDS Game 4. 

Today, ESPN's Field Yates reported that the NFL will indeed move the Seahawks and Cardinals game from 4:05 PM ET to 5:30 PM ET in the event that a 4th ALDS game is needed. 

"NFL schedule note: in the event that the Astros-Mariners series goes to a 4th game this Sunday, Seahawks-Cardinals will be moved back from 4:05 PM ET to 5:30 PM ET," Field Yates tweeted Wednesday morning. 

The Houston Astros currently lead their ALDS matchup with the Seattle Mariners 1-0 following Yordan Alvarez's walk-off home run in Game 1. 

In order to get to a 4th game, Seattle must win at least one of the next two games in the series. 

If the Mariners do force a Game 4, their anticipated starting time is 3:07 PM ET.
