Seahawks vs. 49ers moved to prime-time on Dec. 23

The Seattle Seahawks' game against the San Francisco 49ers on Dec. 23 has been moved to prime time, the NFL announced.

The game was originally scheduled to be played at 1:25 p.m. at CenturyLink Field and televised by FOX. That schedule has been changed, and the game will now start at 5:20 p.m. and be televised by NBC as its Sunday Night Football broadcast.

The game between the 49ers and Seahawks could be for the division lead. San Francisco is 9-3-1, currently a game and a half ahead of Seattle. The 49ers play at New England next week while the Seahawks face Buffalo.

San Francisco has won the last four games against Seattle, including three in a row since Jim Harbaugh became the 49ers' head coach.

It is the third prime-time game for the Seahawks this season after they hosted Green Bay on Monday night in Week 3 and played at San Francisco on Thursday night in Week 7.

Here's how the NFC West stacks up with three games remaining and a chance that three different teams could finish with a winning record this season:
