SF@Seattle (in Week 2) is an NBC Sunday night game, but Seattle@SF (in Week 14) is just a Sunday afternoon game. Granted, the latter is in the "flex" portion of the schedule, so there's always an outside chance that it'll get moved to Sunday night if the intrigue is high enough.
As much as people in general like San Francisco and Seattle (and fans of other teams may disagree), I don't think it's fair to award the SNF game twice in one season to the same match-up. There are 30 other teams that play home-and-away games, in fact every single team plays three of them each year. What makes SF vs SEA the most intriguing of them all?
The NFL is banking hard on Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson being highly marketable faces of the league after Peyton and Brady retire. Also, by Week 14, the playoff picture will be shaping up, and it's quite likely that the Seahawks and 49ers will be the only NFC West teams worth a shit next year.
