After a disappointing game last week, San Francisco bounced back against Arizona, and just in time for the playoffs. After a slow start, both sides of the ball woke up in the second half and the team cruised to a relatively easy victory. The 49ers can feel very good as it enters the playoffs with a lot in their favor, as the final week went exactly as they could have hoped.
After 16 weeks of football, the 49ers and Cardinals enter the final game banged up. This is not a surprise, due to the nature of the sport, and injuries are something that all teams deal with. In this match-up it’s the 49ers that have more impact players listed as injured, and will be without the services of at least one key player. San Francisco will hope to avoid any more injuries in the season finale, as another injury could be disastrous for their playoff hopes.
The NFC West showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals, at least on paper, is a complete mismatch. The 49ers are the division leader, preparing for the playoffs, while the Cardinals sit in last place and are getting ready for next year.
After losing last week to the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers failed to lock up the NFC West. The first team goal of 2013 was to win the division, and they can still do so with a win in the season finale against the Arizona Cardinals. Both the offense and defense have struggled for the last game and a half, however it’s the defense that not only needs to play much better, but should also have no problem carrying San Francisco into the playoffs, with momentum at their back.
Despite early season improvements shown by all the teams in the division, and the possibility of a bright future for all of them, the best team by far is San Francisco. The 49ers have all the tools to dominate the division for the time being. If the other teams though can make minor adjustments and stick together, then the division will not be a walkover for long.
The heavyweight match-up between the Cardinals and 49ers might have been scheduled for 12 rounds, but it was over quickly. San Francisco raced out to the early lead and Arizona could never recover. The end result was an easy win for the 49ers, who have a bye up next and can get healthy in preparation for the stretch run.

The Monday Night Game between the Cardinals and 49ers will go far in determining the eventual NFC West winner. Both teams are healthy for the most part, but the Cardinals have so many players banged up, that they will be in trouble if any injuries pop up in the course of the game. The biggest concern for Arizona will be the health of their quarterback who comes into the game already nicked up, and with an offensive line that has allowed the most in the NFL in sacks.
