The 1-4 San Francisco 49ers have been knocked off the Sunday Night Football marquee, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

As a result, the Chiefs currently 5-0, will enjoy the premier Sunday Night slot in back-to-back weeks. They face the Patriots on the road in Week 6.

The Niners still have the following primetime matchups remaining, at least for now:

*Week 6: Monday Night Football @ Green Bay

*Week 9: Thursday Night Football vs. Oakland

*Week 10: Monday Night Football vs. New York Giants

*Week 13: Sunday Night Football @ Seattle
