NEW TIME FOR BILLS GAME

The Dolphins' home game against the Buffalo Bills, rescheduled after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, will now be played at 4:15 p.m. on Jan. 6.<P>

The game originally was scheduled for 1 p.m. on Sept. 15, but was postponed in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks. It is one of four games with different starting times than originally scheduled.

The Sunday night game for Sept. 15 was scheduled to be Cleveland at Pittsburgh, but that game was moved to 1 p.m. on Jan. 6. The Sunday night game that night will be Philadelphia at Tampa Bay.

Also switching times was the Jacksonville at Chicago matchup, which went from 4:15 to 1 p.m.

The NFL also made a couple of schedule changes during Week 7 to avoid conflicts with the World Series, which was pushed back a week.

As a result, the Giants at Washington game was moved from 8:30 p.m. to 4:05 p.m. and there will be no Sunday night game on Oct. 28. There will be a Thursday night game, with the Indianapolis at Kansas City contest moving from Sunday to Thursday at 8:30 p.m.
