Week 16 49ers-Seahawks matchup moved to Sunday Night Football

Dec 10, 2012 at 10:30 AM--


The week 16 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, a game that could have huge NFC West and playoff positioning implications, has been moved to Sunday Night Football. It will not be played at 5:20 PM PT on NBC.

This means that the 49ers will now play two Sunday night primetime games in a row. The 49ers face the Patriots in New England this Sunday night.

The new matchup replaces the game between the New York Jets and the San Diego Chargers, which will move to 10:00 AM PT.

The 49ers are going after the NFC West lead as well as the second seed in the NFC playoffs. Also on the line is the single season sack record, which linebacker Aldon Smith is three sacks away from matching.

Pass rusher Nick Bosa rejoined his San Francisco 49ers teammates this week. He had been rehabbing and training in Florida with his brother, Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers. Joey typically passes on attending his own team's organized team activities (OTAs). Nick Bosa was never going to hit the practice field with his teammates, but the plan was always to have him around for these two weeks — the last week of OTAs and next week's three-day minicamp. "Yeah, I mean, he can't take part in much because he's still rehabbing too," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters this afternoon, "but he's been here all week, and yeah, he's been good. But he came for a shorter visit than expected." That's because Shanahan canceled the remainder of the

During a conversation with Terrell Owens, Moss said he was the greatest, followed by Owens. Yes, Moss placed Rice at "third or fourth" on his personal ranking. Most laughed at the idea that Moss should be considered the best ever. One of the many who backed Rice for the title is another Hall of Fame receiver, Michael Irvin. Irvin did so again when asked about the greatest

Adam Schein of NFL Network recently ranked the NFL's top worst-to-first candidates. The columnist went division-by-division and examined last season's last-place finishers, ordering each of the eight squads based on their chances to win their respective divisions in 2021. The team with the best chance, in Schein's mind, is the San Francisco 49ers. With a relatively clean bill of health this season, he feels the Niners should be much improved. After all, it wasn't that long ago that head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad played in the Super Bowl. "The return of Nick Bosa, in particular, changes everything for the defense," Schein noted.
