49ers’ schedule change: Dec. 5 visit to Seattle flexed out of prime time for AFC matchup

SANTA CLARA — Neither the 49ers’ resurgence nor their history of feisty visits to the Seattle Seahawks proved enough for the NFL to keep that Dec. 5 matchup in prime time.

Instead, they’ll kick off at 1:25 p.m. on CBS instead of NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” stage.

What the Seahawks might be thinking: “It’s not you. It’s us.”

The Seahawks (3-7) are mired in last place, and Sunday marked their fourth loss in five home games this season.

The 49ers (5-5) have won three of their past four to fuel playoff implications for Sunday’s upcoming visit by the Minnesota Vikings (5-5) at 1:25 p.m.

Replacing the 49ers-Seahawks game in Week 13 prime time is an AFC meeting of the Denver Broncos (5-5) at the Kansas City Chiefs (7-4).

When the NFL schedule came out, the 49ers drew the then-maximum five prime-time games. Of those, the 49ers lost at home to the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts before beating the Los Angeles Rams on Nov. 15. The 49ers’ remaining prime-time game is a Thursday night, Dec. 23 visit to the Tennessee Titans.
