Players with the Las Vegas Raiders are quarantining after a COVID-19 case that might affect its game schedule.

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Raiders game on Sunday was moved after the team quarantined players due to COVID-19.

The Raiders and Buccaneers will now play Sunday afternoon rather than the coveted Sunday Night Football spot. The game will air at 1:05 p.m. on FOX.

In a corresponding move, the Seahawks and Cardinals will now play on Sunday Night Football at 5:20 p.m. on NBC.

"These decisions were made out of an abundance of caution to ensure that a game would be available for fans on Sunday Night Football," the NFL said in a statement.

The schedule changes come after five Raiders players were sent home and right tackle Trent Brown tested positive for COVID-19.
