49ers-Seahawks Week 13 matchup flexed out of Sunday Night Football

Nov 23, 2021 at 12:52 PM--


This news shouldn't come as much of a surprise. The NFL announced that it has flexed the Week 13 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field out of "Sunday Night Football." While the 49ers are getting hot and are 5-5, the Seahawks are an abysmal 3-7. So the game doesn't have as much appeal as the NFL once believed it might.


The NFC West matchup will now be played at 1:25 p.m. PT, now airing on CBS. The more appealing Week 13 matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs (7-4) and the Denver Broncos (5-5) will replace it.

49ers-Seahawks was once among the networks' dream matchups. However, both teams have failed to reach expectations for the 2021 season. Seattle has won the last three meetings between the two teams and four of the last five. San Francisco's last victory over their rival in the Pacific Northwest came on December 29, 2019.

The 49ers' only remaining primetime game is a December 23 matchup against the Tennessee Titans on a Thursday night.

For a week, Dallas Cowboys fans had to endure the media telling them that the San Francisco 49ers were a bad matchup for the self-appointed America's Team. That ended up being true. On Sunday, the 49ers went into AT&T Stadium and knocked the NFC East champions out of the playoffs. Now, it's Green Bay Packers fans' turn to hear about a bad upcoming matchup. The Packers will host the 49ers at Lambeau Field on Saturday night, and ESPN's Dan Orlovsky broke down why this is a poor matchup for the home team. "It's the worst matchup the Packers could have gotten," Orlovsky said Monday on ESPN's Get Up. "It's a bad seven-day stretch for the Packers, knowing that San Francisco comes back, beats the [Rams], then they go on the road [to beat the Cowboys]. And

Now vs. Then: 49ers at Packers a different matchup than previous meeting

Many of us remember how the Week 3 matchup against the Green Bay Packers played out. The 49ers started off slowly on offense, fell behind early, and then made a heroic comeback late in the game only to have Aaron Rodgers do what he does best—win. The offense and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo couldn't get anything going in the first half of that game. Garoppolo did orchestrate that second-half comeback and even led the 49ers to a late-game lead before Aaron Rodgers surgically moved downfield to set up the game-winning field goal. Unfortunately, offensive struggles in one of the two halves have been a trend for the 49ers all season, with both Garoppolo and rookie Trey Lance under center. It's an issue this team needs to address going forward if they plan on
