The previously scheduled December 20 prime time Sunday Night Football game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara has been moved to 1:25 PM. Instead of being aired on NBC, it will now be aired on CBS.

In its place, the league has flexed in the Arizona Cardinals (10-2) at Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) game.

The NFL, who uses flexible scheduling from weeks 11 through 17, attempts to put the best possible matchups into NBC's Sunday Night Football time slot. With the 49ers at 4-8, the league felt that the Eagles, who are still in the NFC East hunt, and the NFC West leading Cardinals would be a better matchup to get more viewers.

That leaves the 49ers with no remaining prime time games. Our San Francisco 49ers schedule page has been updated with the new kickoff time.
