The 49ers will play the Commanders on Sunday, but which parts of the country will receive the TV broadcast?
The San Francisco 49ers are coming off an embarrassment in front of the entire country, one that took place on Christmas Day during the 33-19 loss to the visiting Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.
Getting angry about that and taking it out on their next opponent would be a wise move for the Niners, and facing off against a relatively hapless four-win Washington Commanders team is not a bad way to experience a "get right" game.
Except for the fact it's on a short week after having played last Monday, and it's also an East Coast game with the equivalent of a 10 a.m. PT start.
Never easy for a West Coast team.
Still, head coach Kyle Shanahan and Co. will be itching for a bounce-back performance and would much rather show the rest of the NFL world anything else but what happened in prime time to close out Week 16.
Too bad the entire country won't be able to watch this go-around, however.
