49ers-Bengals Dec. 20 matchup moved out of prime time

Dec 7, 2015 at 2:19 PM--


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.

Everyone is eagerly trying to figure out which quarterback will be selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the No. 3 overall pick. Will it be Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or the less-popular choice of Mac Jones? Whatever the decision, it means the end of Jimmy Garoppolo's time with the Niners is inching closer. The veteran quarterback is expected to remain with the team this season, as head coach Kyle Shanahan and quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello get the incoming rookie up to speed. Marcellus Wiley, a former NFL defensive end, made it known this week that he feels that replacing Garoppolo is a mistake. He believes the quarterback is being made a scapegoat for San Francisco's disappointing six-win campaign in 2020. The Speak for Yourself host went on a rant,

Add yet another mock draft to the pile of those that have the San Francisco 49ers selecting former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones with the No. 3 overall pick over Justin Fields of Ohio State and Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Andrew Erickson of Pro Football Focus has head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch following the narrative created by Chris Simms, Adam Schefter, Daniel Jeremiah, and other national analysts. That doesn't mean Erickson sees Jones as the better prospect. The projection is just based on what is being heard around the league — not that anyone can say with any certainty what the 49ers plan to do. "Although I personally don't agree with the selection — Justin Fields would be the better option — Jones still
