The game’s “Sunday Football” afternoon will finalize the NFL playoff picture. In a game scheduled to start at 8:20 pm ET on NBC, the Seahawks will host the 49ers in what has become the NFC West Championship.
The scenario for Sunday night’s game is simple: The winner will get the division title and all three of the best playoff seeds (possibly No. 1 overall) coming with him and the loser will have to hit the road for the round. wild card of the playoffs.

San Francisco, which enters Sunday night as a three-point favorite, has the opportunity to continue an NFL trend. If the 49ers beat the Seahawks, their relinquishment of the NFC West would mark the 16th time in 17 seasons that at least two teams have won their games in the year since the playoffs were eliminated. (The Packers did it when they defeated the Vikings last week.)
In terms of seed play, San Francisco just needs a win to secure the seed and home advantage advantage of all NFC playoffs. Seattle needs much more to get the top seed – a win, plus losses from both Green Bay (in Detroit) and New Orleans (in Carolina) in Week 17.
Below is all the information you need to watch the 49ers vs. Seahawks on Sunday night, including TV channels and kickoff time for Week 17 play.

- Match: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks
- Clipping time: 8:20 pm ET
In both NFL Week 16 picks against the spread and our straightforward predictions, Sporting News is projecting a 49ers win over the Seahawks. Here are the explanations.
Pick from the spread: The 49ers and Seahawks have suffered several injuries in the second half of the season. The 49ers are getting healthier defenses, and there has been illegal damage. The Seahawks are depleted of reliable bodies in key positions, such as running backs, defensive end and cornerback. Jimmy Garoppolo found some clutch play in the fourth quarter, including Russell Wilson during the overtime loss to San Francisco. The momentum and rounding are with the visitors who will split the seasons, win the NFC West and grab the top seed to cover their time before embarking on a Super Bowl. Selection: 49 players win 27-20.
Straight-up prediction: The NFL made the easy call to flex this matchup in the “Sunday Night Football” window and match it as the last game of the regular season. The scenario is simple: this is the NFC West championship game and while the winner will get the top three seeds in the playoffs (possibly the total number of sports seeds and / or a first round), the loser will have to hit the road for the wild card round. Both teams are hitting, but the younger Seahawks (and Chris Carson and Duane Brown in particular) are particularly important. San Francisco will avenge the loss of Week 10 in Seattle and secure its home advantage in all NFC playoffs. Selection: 49ers 30, Seahawks 20.
