SF 49ers vs. Seahawks live game thread for Week 17, and how to watch on TV or stream online
Welcome to our SF 49ers live game-day thread for Week 17 of the 2020 NFL regular season. Today, our 6-9 San Francisco 49ers play their final game of the year –and their last game in their temporary “home stadium” — as the Niners host the 11-4 Seattle Seahawks.

Today’s NFC West showdown between the Niners and their rival Seahawks kicks off on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021, at 4:25 p.m. ET at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ. The 49ers will hope to improve upon their last performance against the Seahawks — a 10-point loss that proved to be the beginning of the end of the Niners’ 2020 season.
This afternoon’s matchup has serious playoff implications for Seattle — winners of the NFC West — who would secure a first-round bye with a combination of a victory over San Francisco and Week 17 losses by the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers. The SF 49ers will be playing for little more than pride, with a roster that barely resembles their 2020 Super Bowl squad, in a game that will lack the intensity of their Week 17 victory over their long-term rivals last season.
