49ers-Seahawks Week 16 game flexed to Sunday Night Football

USA TODAY Sports

The NFL flexed the Week 16 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks to Sunday Night Football.

The NFL has decided to flex the Week 16 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks to NBC's Sunday Night Football. The league originally scheduled the division matchup for 4:25 p.m ET on FOX.

The scheduled Sunday Night Football game between the San Diego Chargers and the New York Jets will move to 1 p.m. ET on CBS. The New York Giants-Baltimore Ravens game will shift from the 1 p.m. time slot on CBS to the 4:25 p.m ET spot on FOX.

The 49ers hold a 1½-game lead over the Seahawks for first place in the NFC West. Seattle currently owns the first wild-card spot in NFC, clinging to a one-game lead over the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys and the Minnesota Vikings.

If Seattle wins in Week 15 and San Francisco loses, the winner of this game will lead in the NFC West. The 49ers play a tough road game against the New England Patriots this Sunday, while Seattle will face the Buffalo Bills.
