Schedule Update: 49ers-Packers flexed to Sunday Night Football, 49ers-Rams set for December 21

Nov 12, 2019 at 3:12 PM--

You can start finalizing the remainder of your NFL and San Francisco 49ers watching plans.

The league provided two updates to the 49ers schedule today. The team's Week 12 matchup on November 24 against the Green Bay Packers, initially on FOX, has been flexed to the Sunday Night Football primetime slot on NBC. Kickoff is now scheduled for 5:20 p.m. PT.

The NFL also finally set the date and time for the 49ers' Week 16 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. The game will kick off on Saturday, December 21 at 5:15 p.m. from Levi's Stadium and be televised on NFL Network.

Why didn't that Week 16 game have a set date and time upon the release of the 49ers' 16-game schedule back in April? That's because Week 16 of the NFL season will feature a Saturday triple-header in addition to Sunday's slate of games. The league waited until now to choose three matchups from five possibilities to be part of that three-game Saturday.

WEEK 12 (November 24):
Green Bay at San Francisco moves from 1:25 p.m. PT on FOX to 5:20 p.m. PT on NBC.

WEEK 16 (December 21-22):
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco has been scheduled for Saturday, December 21, at 5:15 p.m. PT on NFL Network.

Below is the full slate of games that will be played on December 21.

  • Houston Texans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10:00 a.m. PT)
  • Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots (1:30 p.m. PT)
  • Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers (5:15 p.m. PT)

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle finally had a chance last month to catch some offseason footballs from his starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo. The two were part of a contingent of players who gathered at the Brentwood Academy just outside Nashville, where Kittle lives during the offseason, for player-organized workouts. Until then, Kittle had been catching passes from C.J. Beathard, who also lives in the area. The offseason workouts brought together all four 49ers quarterbacks, also including Nick Mullens and Broc Rutter. As you know, those sessions ended on a sour note after one unidentified player tested positive for

NFL cancels Weeks 1 and 4 of preseason, eliminating Broncos, Chargers from 49ers' schedule

The NFL is canceling Weeks 1 and 4 of the preseason, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. The league is reportedly expected to announce the decision on Thursday. "The move was driven by two primary factors," writes Florio. "First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won't want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don't have to worry about two extra preseason games." For the 49ers, this will mean the elimination of the team's August 15 road game against the Denver

The San Francisco 49ers offense lost veteran offensive tackle Joe Staley and guard Mike Person this offseason. Both have announced their retirements from football. Could the 49ers offensive line be even better in 2020 despite the losses? Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus believes so. The analyst ranked the offensive lines throughout the league, and the 49ers group came in at No. 8 on his list. That's six spots higher than the unit ranked during the analytics site's 2019 regular-season rankings. Palazzolo notes that the 49ers' offensive line should be even better in 2020, assuming its five starters can remain healthy. The team replaced
