By now, everyone is aware of the importance of Sunday's matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings. This game is for Wild Card position, as the 49ers look to build on their newfound momentum for the rest of the season. However, there are a few other games this week to keep an eye on that will affect positioning as teams look to make a playoff push.

Here are a few of the big ones.

On Thanksgiving Day, the Buffalo Bills (6-4) take on the Saints (5-5) in New Orleans. The Bills seek to get things right as they are coming off back-to-back weeks with embarrassing losses to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts. The Saints look to hold onto their 7th-seed Wild-card spot at home and take advantage of a struggling Bills team. Let's go, Bills!

The 4-7 Miami Dolphins take on the 5-6 Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The Panthers are currently in 10th place in the NFC and are only one game back of the 49ers. The Panthers have an all-new, yet familiar, identity on offense after former MVP quarterback Cam Newton returned to the team that drafted him. Let's hope the Dolphins can take care of business to keep the Panthers out of Wild Card position. Go Dolphins!

The 7-3 Los Angeles Rams take on the 8-3 Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The Rams are coming off of a bye week after getting destroyed by the 49ers in Week 10 by a score of 31-10. The Packers are coming off a loss to the Vikings and look to rebound this week. The Packers are currently the No. 2 seed in the NFC, while the Rams sit at No. 5 and are two games ahead of the 49ers. As 49er fans, let's just hope the Rams lose for the rest of the season. Go, Pack, go!

Other teams to root against are the Philadelphia Eagles, the Washington Football Team, and the Atlanta Falcons.

    Coming from Elk Grove, California I grew up a Bay Area sports fan. I've been cheering for the 49ers for as long as I can remember. In 2005 I joined the Army when I was 18 and got stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. I just kind of hung around here. I've always enjoyed writing and have typically focus on writing music. I am truly blessed to get to cover the 49ers, and have my articles published on the 49ers Webzone. I appreciate all of the Faithful that take the time to read the articles that myself and other contributors put out there. The 49ers have without a doubt the best fanbase, and best content creators around.

Latest NFL.com mock draft suggests 49ers upgrade right tackle spot

By David Bonilla
Apr 8

NFL Media's Adam Rank has thrown his hat into the mock draft ring. However, there's a slight twist. Rather than projecting what NFL teams will do in Round 1, he's sharing what he believes they should do in Round 1. For the San Francisco 49ers at No. 31 overall, Rank suggests general manager John Lynch should focus on upgrading the offensive line. Specifically, he recommends finding a replacement for Colton McKivitz at right tackle. Rank proposes that the 49ers use their first-round pick on former Oklahoma tackle Tyler Guyton. "Last season, Colton McKivitz gave up nine sacks -- tied for fourth-most in the NFL, per PFF," Rank

Watch: 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk undercover as an Applebee's employee

Brandon Aiyuk must really need that new contract. The San Francisco 49ers wide receiver took on an offseason job as an Applebee's employee while awaiting news about his NFL future. Well, not exactly. It was actually part of the series "Undercover Athlete" from Whistle, promoting the new "Whole Lotta Bacon Burger." Still, it was amusing to see Aiyuk serving customers who couldn't quite place his familiar face at first glance. You can watch the video below. H/t Andy Lindquist of NBC Sports Bay
