This Thursday, NFL Network’s traveling road show heads out of its Los Angeles studios and goes up the California coast to the Bay Area where the live game will be a NFC West Division battle between the Seattle Seawhawks and San Francisco 49ers.
Seattle comes off an epic come-from-behind win against the NFL’s Evil Empire, the New England Patriots. The 49ers are reeling after a bad loss to the New York Giants in the NFC Championship rematch.
Brad Nessler and Mike Mayock will call the game with Alex Flanagan on the sidelines. Rich Eisen hosts the pregame with the usual suspects of analysts. And Stacey Dales will also be on the case on the pregame.
Here are the particulars on this week’s Thursday Night Football game.
