The Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers will be tussling for eyeballs in a couple of weeks.

In a move that hasn't happened in recent memory, the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders will go head-to-head this Sunday.

No the two Bay Area teams are not scheduled to play eachother but instead the NFL will allow the two teams to play games at the same time.

Bay Area football fans have grown accustomed to having one local team play in the morning on Sunday and the second play the afternoon game.

But last week the NFL moved the Raiders game in Green Bay from a 10 a.m. local start to 1 p.m.

The San Francisco 49ers are scheduled to play the Arizona Cardinals at the same time.

CBS will carry the Raiders game as its game of the week across the country, while the 49ers will play over on Fox.
