When the 49ers and Seahawks meet for the third time this season the stakes could not be higher. The winner will move on to the Super Bowl, while the loser will have to deal with falling just short of the big stage and to make matters worse at the hands of their hated division rival.
The underdog Atlanta Falcons gave San Francisco all they wanted Monday Night, but could not pull off the upset. In the final game played at Candlestick Park the 49ers sent off the stadium in style with a dramatic, playoff clinching win.
San Francisco has hit the midway point in their season and with a 6-2 record, they have to be happy with the overall play of the team. They have gotten a positive contribution from just about every member of the roster, and the only real gripes have to be a questionable offensive game plan to start the season and a free agent pick up that has not lived up to expectations.
The 49ers will go on the road this week to take on a Tennessee Titan team that is looking to save their season. The Titans are on a losing streak, but a very talented and dangerous team with their playoff chances still alive. Despite winning their past 3 the 49ers need a win just as badly as the Titans, and the winner of this game will have to earn it.
Considering its week 6, both the 49ers and Cardinals have to be content with their injury situations. With an unimpressive injury report on each side, neither team could ask for more. With their bye still a few weeks off, San Francisco hopes to remain healthy after this important division game.
When the San Francisco 49ers lost two games in a row this season, falling to 1-2, some called them the most disappointing team in the NFL. After winning a couple of games and having injured players return to the roster, the 49ers are now primed to remind the rest of the NFL why they were so many people’s preseason Super Bowl pick.
While it’s hard to tell, the 49ers are slowly getting healthier. The long list of names on their injured report remains, but nothing to be alarmed about for the time being. St. Louis on the other hand is as healthy as can be heading into this pivotal game to stay out of the NFC West cellar.
With the 49ers sputtering out to a 1-2 start in 2013, everyone is trying to figure out what is wrong with the team many had picked to be the NFC representative in the Super bowl. While most theories are around the offense that has failed to put up points, the real concern is a 49ers defense that is running out of bodies.
At first glance it seems that the Packers and 49ers will both be at full strength for the match up Sunday. However, San Francisco will be without several players and will need to hold the fort until they get back their full roster.
