When the Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17, the NFC West title, and perhaps the NFC's No. 1 seed, will be on the line.

As a result, the NFL has announced that Seattle's final regular season game will be flexed from its afternoon time slot to Sunday Night Football. The game will kick off at 5:20 p.m., and regardless of Seattle's Week 16 result against Arizona, will determine the division champ.

San Francisco, which beat the L.A. Rams Saturday, improved to 12-3, while the Seahawks are 11-3 heading into Sunday's game against Arizona. Even with a loss Sunday, the Seahawks would win the division with a win over San Francisco, because in that scenario both teams would be 12-4 and the Seahawks would hold the head-to-head tiebreaker having beaten the 49ers twice.

Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner hosted 100 children from local youth organizations for a holiday shopping spree, giving each child in attendance gift cards so they could complete all of their holiday shopping needs. Wagner was joined by Blitz and several of Wagner's teammates, including K.J. Wright, Shaquem Griffin, Shaquill Griffin, Ugo Amadi, and Emmanuel Ellerbee, came out to get in on the holiday shopping fun.

Bobby Wagner is also the Seahawks nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, for his outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on the field. Fans can vote for Bobby Wagner by heading to Twitter and using #WPMOYChallenge followed by Wagner. The player whose unique hashtag is used the most between Dec. 12 and Jan. 12 will receive a $25,000 contribution to their charity of choice.
