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.

Things got a little heated during the first half of Sunday's matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars. Jaguars safety Rayshawn Jenkins threw a punch that connected with 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings, resulting in a penalty, the defender getting ejected from the game, and keeping San Francisco's drive alive. What was head coach Kyle Shanahan's message to his young receiver after the scuffle? "I just told him, 'Great job. Now put your helmet on,'" Shanahan told reporters via a conference call on Monday. "It took him too long to hear 'put your helmet on,' but I thought, from what I saw, I saw him competing as hard as you can compete on a run play and just playing until the whistle. "Obviously, the other guy got upset with

The FOX broadcast caught San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan heading over to a seated Jimmy Garoppolo after the quarterback threw an early interception against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The Niners ended up winning the game 34-26, but mistakes like the pick have led to criticisms from fans, especially considering the Vikings scored off the turnover. Garoppolo was asked about the sideline conversation with Shanahan and if his coach was "pissed off" about the costly mistake. "Naturally. It wasn't a good decision," Garoppolo responded. "I've got to be better than that with it. Just take the check-down. They were giving those to us early, and I just need to be more efficient with those." Shanahan was also asked about the sideline
