Fox. 10-1. 49ers -1.5. 4:25 p.m. ET. 42. Sunday, Dec. 3. 49ers-Eagles opening. 54. 8-3

If you live in the United States, there's a good chance you'll be able to see the 49ers game against the Eagles on Sunday.

It's a good question why the NFL schedule makers didn't list the Week 13 bout between the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles as a primetime game on Sunday or Monday night.

This would classify as must-watch television, especially knowing what went down between these two teams during the NFC Championship game last January and all the fallout (and smack talk) that took place thereafter.

It also helps to know that the 10-1 Eagles and 8-3 Niners hold the first two seeds in the NFC playoff picture, and the right for the No. 1 seed is still very much up for grabs.

Meaning Sunday's contest between these two newfound rivals is of extreme importance.

49ers vs. Eagles broadcast map, Week 13

Chances are, if you're living in the United States, you'll be able to watch Sunday's contest between Philly and San Francisco.

Fox will broadcast the game with Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen on the call, while Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi will be on the sidelines.

As for the broadcast map, unless fans are living in Southern California or in Ohio (and some expanses just beyond the state's borders), it'll be all 49ers and Eagles for the late game in Week 13, as shown by 506 Sports:

The Los Angeles Rams host the Cleveland Browns at the same time, but it's likely only fans of those two teams would want to tune into that game.

Meanwhile, the rest of the NFL will certainly enjoy what figures to be an intense matchup and grudge match from what took place last season when the Eagles advanced beyond the 49ers to the Super Bowl.

The two teams kick off on Sunday, Dec. 3 at 4:25 p.m. ET from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
