Bucs-49ers no longer in prime time



The NFL will officially announce later today that the Bucs' Sunday night game at San Francisco will be moved to 4:05 p.m. and aired on FOX.

The game was originally slated to be played at 8 p.m. on Sunday Dec. 23 but was eligible to be moved in exchange for a more attractive matchup under the NFL's flex scheduling policy. It was to be the Bucs' only prime time appearance of the season, scheduled to be part of NBC's Sunday night package. It now will be replaced by the Redskins-Vikings.

In an unrelated move, the Dolphins-Patriots game scheduled for the same day will be moved to 4:15 p.m. on CBS.
