NFL flexes 49ers vs. Cowboys game out of prime time window

NBC Sports

You think the 49ers have it bad?

Check out the Dallas Cowboys.

The 49ers (5-7) are on the fringe of the NFC playoff race. The Cowboys are in last place in the abysmal NFC East, though they are just two games out of first place with a 3-9 record.

Neither team is exactly worthy of being featured on prime time these days, as the NFL determined on Wednesday morning.
