You know it’s been a weird NFL season when a game between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys gets flexed out of prime time.

Those are two of the NFL’s marquee franchises, and they were slated to play on Sunday Night Football in Week 15. But they were flexed out of that slot and instead placed at 1 p.m. ET Sunday in favor of Browns vs. Giants on Sunday night. It makes sense from a football standpoint, as the Cowboys (4-9) and 49ers (5-8) are both essentially out of the playoff race. Most fans won’t be deprived of watching that meaningless matchup if they want to, though, because CBS will be carrying it in the whole western half of the United States.

For more info on if 49ers-Cowboys will be available to you on your local CBS affiliate at 1 p.m. ET on Dec. 13, check out the map and information below, along with a full Week 14 NFL schedule.
