SEATTLE — You know the local team is tough when they get bumped to Sunday Night Football.

The week 16 NFL match-up between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers has been moved to NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” reported early Monday.

The game between the NFC West Division rivals replaces the originally scheduled Sunday night match-up between the New York Jets and the the San Diego Charges. That game will now be played at 10 a.m. on CBS, reported. The game between the New York Giants and the Baltimore Ravens will replace the 1:25 game on Q13 FOX.

This is the first time NBC and the NFL have used “flex scheduling ” which allows crucial games to be switched to the Sunday night time slot to grab a bigger national audience.

The game could potentially decide which takes the NFC West crown, home-field advantage and a possible first-round bye into the playoffs.

    It was a good move by the NFL to flex the 49ers and Seahawks game to Sunday night since it has more playoff ramifications than the other game. This is a key NFC West matchup, and I’ll be sure to set a timer for it through my DISH Hopper GameFinder app so I won’t miss it. Since a coworker at DISH told me about this feature, I’ve been able to set recordings with one push of a button, which helps me catch up with games when I have free time. This game definitely has a lot more importance than the Jets and Chargers game it’s replacing.

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you need to publish more on this subject matter,
    it might not be a taboo subject but typically people don’t discuss such subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
