The San Francisco 49ers and San Diego Chargers square off in Week 16 in a rare Saturday matchup. The league avoids Saturday contests during college football season, but with bowl season approaching they like to take advantage of the rare opening. This will be part of a double-header, kicking off at 5:25 p.m. PT on CBS, with Philadelphia and Washington preceding it at 1:30 p.m. PT on NFL Network.

The CBS primetime game means it will be available to anybody with network TV. CBS does not offer streaming outside of the Super Bowl, but hopefully everybody either has a TV, or can get to one. The broadcast crew for this game will feature Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts in the booth, with Jenny Dell on the sideline. It's not quite the last game of the year, but with the 49ers eliminated, I suppose they can't hold anything back now.

We will not need the broadcast maps of 506sports.com, given the national broadcast. However, if you are outside the US, we're back once again to help figure out how you can watch the game. There will be quite a few options for you, and I know I'm missing plenty of them. Let us know in the comments if you are from outside the US and the channel the game is airing. If the game is not showing in your country, you can always check out NFL Game Pass.

Canada: CBS (A Rouge Point).

United Kingdom: Sky Sports (per NFL UK).

Armed Forces Network-Europe: AFN Sports

Far East: Our friends at All Sports Network TV will broadcast the game live Sunday morning, 9:25 a.m. Hong Kong time. It will re-air that night at 8:30 p.m. Hong Kong time. The broadcast will appear throughout Southeast Asia. Check out their map if you live out there.

Given the national broadcast of this game, I'm sure there will be other international telecasts, so let us know in the comments, and I'll add them in.
