49ers-Seahawks Game Moves To Sunday Night Football
Starting in Week 11, the league's flexible scheduling policy allows it to move a more appealing game to Sunday night. This is the first time this season a switch has been made.
The 49ers are 9-3-1 heading into their trip to New England for the first of what will be two straight Sunday night appearances. The Seahawks are 8-5 and play Buffalo in Toronto this weekend.
Another matchup with major playoff implications, Giants-Ravens, shifts to 4:25 p.m. EST on Fox in Week 16.
The Chargers-Jets game moves to 1 p.m. on CBS.
Carroll Says Seahawks Handled Blowout Properly
Pete Carroll says he felt the Seattle Seahawks handled their blowout win over Arizona in proper fashion.
Carroll said Monday that the goal in the second half of Seattle's 58-0 victory over the Cardinals was to continue to play well and make progress while also getting some younger players some work.
Now the challenge for Seattle (8-5) is not letting the victory become a lingering hangover going to Toronto on Sunday to face the Buffalo Bills.
It's a possible trap game for the Seahawks coming off such a huge home victory and with a showdown waiting at home the following Sunday against San Francisco.
With a little help from New England, that game could be for the lead in the NFC West.
No Action On Cardinals Coach Until Season Ends
Arizona Cardinals President Michael Bidwill says a decision on whether Ken Whisenhunt remains as coach will be made after the season.
Bidwill calls the team's 58-0 loss at Seattle on Sunday "unacceptable" and says he has been evaluating the situation on a week to week basis. He says there is a lot of emotion in the aftermath of the most one-sided loss in franchise history and he doesn't want to make any decisions based on emotion.
Bidwill says "there is plenty of blame to go around" in Arizona's nine-game losing streak.
Bidwill, whose father Bill Bidwill owns the team, runs the franchise. He says winning and losing, not finances, will figure in the eventual decision.
Whisenhunt is due about $5.5 million in the final year of his contract next year.
