The NFL adjusted the starting times of two games on its Week 8 schedule, the league announced Friday. The Houston Texans' home game against the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 27 has been flexed out of the 1 p.m. ET slot. The game will kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET.

Quarterback Deshaun Watson has the Texans (3-2) sharing the AFC South lead with the Indianapolis Colts (3-2), who saw their Week 8 home game versus the Denver Broncos (1-4) flexed from 4:25 p.m. to 1 p.m. Both games in question will be aired on CBS.

Watson has completed 110 of 159 passes for 1,364 yards with 11 touchdowns and one interception this season. The 24-year-old threw for a career-high 426 yards with a personal best-tying five touchdowns in Houston's 53-32 win over Atlanta on Sunday. The Raiders (3-2) answered a two-game skid with back-to-back victories heading into their bye week.
