Ice storm forces play­off time change

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - SPORTS -

KANSAS CITY, MO. >> The AFC di­vi­sional play­off game be­tween the Pitts­burgh Steel­ers and Kansas City Chiefs on Sun­day has been moved from an early-af­ter­noon kick­off to prime­time be­cause of an ice storm due to hit the Kansas City area this week­end.

The game was orig­i­nally sched­uled to kick off at 12:05 p.m. Cen­tral time. It will now start at 7:20 p.m. to give road crews and pub­lic safety of­fi­cials more time to treat roads and park­ing lots.

The fore­cast called for ice to move into the area Fri­day, and per­sis­tent cold tem­per­a­tures through­out to­day and Sun­day. More pre­cip­i­ta­tion is ex­pected Sun­day, though mostly in the form of cold rain.
