The NFL finalized the 49ers’ start times for their Week 15 and 16 games, moving a home game against the San Diego Chargers into prime time.
The 49ers will play the Chargers on Saturday, Dec. 20, at Levi’s Stadium. The game will start at 5:25 p.m. (PT) and be televised nationally on CBS, the NFL announced on Sunday.
A week earlier, the 49ers game at the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15 will remain as a 1:25 p.m. start and not be “flexed” into prime time.
The Week 16 game is a part of a Saturday doubleheader that kicks off with Philadelphia at Washington on the NFL Network. The 49ers will play under the lights for the third time at home this season.
The 49ers are 0-2 in prime time games at Levi’s Stadium.
The 49ers lost a Sunday night game in Week 2 to the Chicago Bears and were 19-3 losers against Seattle on Thanksgiving night.
