This February, as every February, the football fandom community is awhirl with speculation about the timing of the Super Bowl. The NFL has dropped a breadcrumb trail of clues in the promotional campaign leading up to Sunday’s big game, and plenty of football fans think they know exactly when kickoff will happen.

But one potential answer, from a Redditor and pigskin fanatic using the handle JaguarGator9, really stands out. You can check out JaguarGator’s heavily upvoted post and the lengthy discussion it inspired here, but the title of the thread speaks for itself.

Wow! This crazy Reddit fan theory might actually make sense. It’s definitely something to think about, but remember, it’s only speculation—only time will tell whether the 2016 Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers starts at 6:30 p.m. EST this Sunday (on CBS).
