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.

49ers TE George Kittle expects QB Jimmy Garoppolo to 'come out firing' in training camp

Given what happened over the first half of 2021 and how he responded to it during spring practices, it would come as no surprise if 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo winds up making a major statement with his play during the upcoming preseason. The 49ers made it clear in April that Garoppolo no longer had a hold on the starting quarterback job over a long-term basis when they selected rookie Trey Lance in the 2021 NFL Draft. But Garoppolo responded to that decision with a sharp performance during team workouts in May and June, and it's very possible he carries that over into the next few weeks as the 49ers proceed through training camp and the preseason



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
