Where the 49ers sit in the NFC West standings after Week 6 action

Oct 18, 2021 at 7:32 AM--


The good news is that the Seattle Seahawks lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The outcome may have been different with a healthy Russell Wilson at the helm, but the 23-20 defeat drops Seattle to 2-4 and last place in the NFC West.

The San Francisco 49ers are 2-3 and were on their bye during Week 6's action. They are now in third place and will begin preparing to host the Indianapolis Colts. We still don't know who will be the quarterback in that game. Both Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) and rookie Trey Lance (knee) are dealing with injuries. We'll learn more about their statuses during this week's practices.

The bye week allowed head coach Kyle Shanahan to attend the induction ceremony for his father, Mike Shanahan, into the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame. The elder Shanahan requested the event to take place this weekend so his son could attend.


The Niners lost ground to the leaders in the division. On Sunday, the undefeated Arizona Cardinals knocked off the Cleveland Browns 37-14, remaining in the top spot within the NFC West.

The second-place Los Angeles Rams cruised to a 38-11 victory over the New York Giants and are now 5-1.

San Francisco doesn't face another NFC West opponent until Weeks 9 and 10, when it hosts the Cardinals and Rams in back-to-back games.

Back in the hunt: Where the 49ers stand in the NFC playoff picture after rout of Rams

By David Bonilla
Nov 16

Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. The San Francisco 49ers still have eight games remaining on their 2021 schedule. However, their season isn't as dead as it appeared a week ago. After a decisive 31-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams, a division rival with Super Bowl aspirations, their playoff hopes are alive. Next up are the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team Kyle Shanahan's Niners should be able to beat. Of course, that was the thinking in Week 9 against an injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals team. That didn't go as hoped. However, if the 49ers can ride the momentum of Monday night's impressive and somewhat shocking win throughout the rest of the season, they could be a dangerous team down the

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his performance in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers beat the Rams 31-10 at Levi's Stadium. Samuel totaled five receptions and 133 scrimmage yards (97 receiving, career-high 36 rushing) with two touchdowns (one receiving, one rushing) against the Rams. It was his first career game with both a receiving and rushing touchdown. This is the second Offensive Player of the Week award for Samuel, with the first coming in Week 8 of this season. He joins Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (1990, 1992 and 1994) as the only 49ers wide receivers to earn



Kyle Shanahan explains why he didn't hand out game balls after 49ers trounce Rams

Head coach Kyle Shanahan usually hands out game balls after a victory. However, he didn't do so after his San Francisco 49ers trounced the NFC West-rival Los Angeles Rams 31-10. The coach explained why after the game. "We didn't give any game balls out," Shanahan told reporters. "I would have given one to everybody, if we did, but we need to start to expect some more games like that. We've got to be sure that -- we can be better or worse next week, and we've got to make sure we're better." San Francisco improves to 4-5 and prevents falling back into last place in the NFC West. That dishonor belongs to the Seattle Seahawks, who are 3-6. Shanahan and the Niners have won five straight against the Rams, and earned their first home victory in 393 days. That last home
