The Seattle Seahawks Week 16 game against the San Francisco 49ers has been flexed to Sunday Night Football.

The NFL has flexed the Week 16 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks into the Sunday night slot. FOX originally planned to air the game at 1:25 p.m. PT, but the game will now kick-off at 5:20 p.m. PT with coverage on NBC.

The NFL moved three different games to accommodate the change. The originally scheduled Sunday night game between the New York Jets and the San Diego Chargers is now at 10 a.m PT on CBS, while the game between the New York Giants and the Baltimore Ravens moved into the 1:25 p.m PT spot on FOX.

The Seahawks are currently 8-5 on the season, and sit 1½ games behind the 49ers for first place in the division. The winner of the NFC West division may be on the line in two weeks if the 49ers lose their next game and Seattle wins. San Francisco will play a tough road game against the New England Patriots in Week 15 while Seattle will face the 5-8 Buffalo Bills.
