You know how you hate it when the 4:15 p.m. ET game you REALLY want to watch isn't on TV because the stupid 1 p.m. game is still being played?

Well, you won't have to worry about that anymore, as the NFL has announced (and the Sports Business Journal's John Ourand originally reported) that those previously-scheduled 4:15 p.m. games will move to 4:25 p.m beginning this season to avoid overlap. About 40 games in 2012 will be impacted by the kickoff time shift -- half of those moves are for games played in the Mountain or Pacific time zones.

So, that's good news for those whose blood pressure is raised when the Browns-Jaguars game just … won't … end while the Patriots and Steelers go head to head. Of course, that's not great news for those non-football fans who are waiting for 60 Minutes to start.

But you know what? Let 'em wait. We've got late-afternoon football to watch.

Here's part of the NFL release:

The kickoff time for Sunday late afternoon doubleheader games on CBS and FOX will be moved from 4:15 PM ET to 4:25 PM ET, the NFL announced today.
