NBC Flexes Week 17 49ers/Seahawks Battle For NFC West To Sunday Night Football


The NFL announced on Sunday that it will flex the Week 17 clash between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks into prime-time.

Now, 49ers/Seahawks for the NFC West title will take place on Sunday Night Football with kickoff arriving on 8:20 p.m. ET from CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

The winner of Sunday’s game will win the NFC West and likely earn a first-round bye and possibly home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs pending the results of Week 16 action.

Meanwhile, the loser will play on the road during wild-card weekend against the NFC East champion.

Seattle handed San Francisco its first loss of the season back on November 11 during a 27-24 overtime thriller.
