The Seattle Seahawks are trending in all the wrong directions at this point in the season. The team is 3-7 and they are about to lose a primetime game. Per a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the week 13 Sunday Night Football game originally slated to be Seattle versus the San Francisco 49ers will likely change.
And why blame the NFL for doing this? Seattle may have Russell Wilson but their offense is terrible. 12s have to watch the Seahawks play because this is our favorite team but would we force others to watch them? No. We aren’t sadists.
Instead, viewers are likely to get the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs or the Los Angeles Chargers versus the Cincinnati Bengals. That’s right, 12s. The Cincinnati Bengals are now more of a draw at this point in the season than the Seattle Seahawks. Whoever had that bet before the year, go collect your money.
Seattle Seahawks and 49ers likely to be flexed in week 13
The NFL had until Monday to announce that the Seahawks and 49ers game would indeed stay on Sunday Night Football but that didn’t happen. Roger Goodell and friends probably watched film of the Seattle offense from most of the season and thought, “Well, surely the league can do better than this!”
There has been no official announcement as far as the game being flexed yet but your plans for week 13 will probably need to change some. At least to a different time. But look on the bright side, now you will have your Sunday evening free after watching Seattle lose again (most likely).
So, apologies to the 49ers. You deserve better. If Seattle were playing the way it has for a decade, this game would stay on SNF and be must-watch TV. But Seattle could be 3-8 by week 13 because there is nothing that recently shows we should believe otherwise.
