first_imgMORE: Watch “Sunday Night Football” live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)San Francisco, which enters Sunday night’s game as a three-point road favorite, has a chance to continue an NFL trend. If the 49ers beat the Seahawks, their clinching of the NFC West would mark the 16th time in 17 seasons that at least two teams have won their divisions the year after missing the playoffs. (The Packers did so when they beat the Vikings last week.)As for playoff seeding, San Francisco simply needs a win to clinch the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Seattle needs much more to take the top seed — a win, plus losses by both Green Bay (at Detroit) and New Orleans (at Carolina) in Week 17.Below is all the info you need to watch 49ers vs. Seahawks on Sunday night, including the TV channels and kickoff time for the Week 17 game.MORE: Full betting preview for 49ers vs. SeahawksWho plays on Sunday Night Football tonight?Matchup: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle SeahawksKickoff time: 8:20 p.m. ETIn both our Week 16 NFL picks against the spread and our straight-up predictions, Sporting News is projecting a 49ers victory over the Seahawks. Below are the explanations.Pick against the spread: The 49ers and Seahawks have been hit with several injuries in the second half of the season. The 49ers are getting healthier defensively, and there’s been limited damage offensively. The Seahawks are running out of trusted bodies at key positions, including running back, defensive end and cornerback. Jimmy Garoppolo has been finding some clutch play in the fourth quarter, including opposite Russell Wilson during the overtime loss in San Francisco. The momentum and well-roundedness are with the visitors, who will split the season series, win the NFC West and grab the top seed to cap their breakout year before a Super Bowl run. Pick: 49ers win 27-20.Straight-up prediction: The NFL made the easy call to flex this matchup into the “Sunday Night Football” window and tee it up as the last regular-season game of the year. The scenario is simple: This is the NFC West championship game, and while the winner will get a top three seed in the playoffs (potentially the No. 1 overall seed and/or a first-round bye), the loser will be forced to hit the road for the wild-card round. Both teams are banged up, but the Seahawks’ newest injuries (namely those to Chris Carson and Duane Brown) are particularly impactful. San Francisco will avenge its Week 10 loss to Seattle and clinch home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Pick: 49ers 30, Seahawks 20.MORE: NFL TV coverage map for Week 17What channel is Sunday Night Football on?TV channel (national): NBCTV channel (San Francisco): KNTVTV channel (Seattle): KINGLive stream: fuboTVAs has been the case for all “Sunday Night Football” games on NBC this season, Al Michaels will call the 49ers vs. Seahawks play-by-play action, and Cris Collinsworth will provide analysis.
