That’s a bummer

Twice last week it was reported that the San Francisco 49ers Week 6 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams kickoff would be moved from a 1:05 p.m. kickoff to the Sunday Night Football matchup. The current slate is the Chargers and the Steelers. The Athletic’s Matt Barrows reported Tuesday morning that the game would not be flexed. The NFL had until Tuesday to make a decision to flex the game, and that decision has come. That’s a bummer.

The Rams lost to Tampa Bay, and both the Chargers and Steelers won their games Week 4, so that may have had something to do with the decision to leave the game in the primetime slot. The NFL does love the Steelers, that’s no secret. Still, they have a backup quarterback, and the half of the Chargers roster is injured.

So, if you were planning on making the trip to Los Angeles, you won’t have all day Sunday anymore. Get into town the night before, at least, to avoid any headaches. Also, blame Jared Goff for losing to Tampa Bay. I’m pretty sure that’s how this works.

This made me laugh.
