Playoff Picture: 49ers jump in playoff standings ahead of Week 12

Nov 22, 2022 at 10:20 AM--



Entering Week 11, the San Francisco 49ers held the seventh and final spot in the NFC playoff standings. However, heading into Week 12, after the team's 38-10 rout of the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City, San Francisco's playoff picture looks brighter.

While the 49ers and Seattle Seahawks both own identical 6-4 records, San Francisco has beaten Seattle once this season, so it owns the tiebreaker between the two teams. That has lifted the 49ers into first place in the NFC West.

If the season ended today, the 49ers would be the No. 3 seed in the NFC and would be preparing to host the New York Giants at Levi's Stadium. San Francisco has won two of its last three matchups against the Giants, including the last meeting between the two teams, a 36-9 victory in 2020.

Next up for the 49ers are home games against the New Orleans Saints, Miami Dolphins, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Below are the current NFC playoff standings.

  1. Philadelphia Eagles (9-1)
  2. Minnesota Vikings (8-2)
  3. San Francisco 49ers (6-4)
  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-5)
  5. Dallas Cowboys (7-3)
  6. New York Giants (7-3)
  7. Seattle Seahawks (6-4)

Below are the teams that would be on the outside looking in if the season ended today.

  • Washington Commanders (6-5)
  • Atlanta Falcons (5-6)
  • Detroit Lions (4-6)

Below are the Wildcard matchups if the season ended today. The Eagles would await the weakest-seeded winner to emerge from the first round of games.

  1. Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings
  2. New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers
  3. Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Playoff Picture: Where the 49ers stand ahead of Week 13 clash with Dolphins

By David Bonilla
Dec 1

Not much has changed with the NFC playoff picture compared to last week. The only difference is that the Washington Commanders have ousted the Seattle Seahawks from the top seven and would now be the final Wildcard team if the season ended today. The 49ers' Week 12 win over the New Orleans Saints and the Seahawks' loss to the Las Vegas Raiders has given San Francisco a full game lead over its division rival in the NFC West. The Niners have a tough test this weekend, though. They will host the 8-3 Miami Dolphins, coached by former 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel. San Francisco hopes to add to its four-game win streak, inch closer to the No. 2 seed, and hand Miami its first defeat since Week 6. If the season ended today, the 49ers would be

New Orleans Saints fans were fuming after the game. Many felt that San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa was early off the line of scrimmage on the fourth-down play that led to sack number 11.5 for the defender this season. Even Bosa wasn't sure the play would stand. "It was great. I didn't think it counted, but once I realized it did, I was pretty happy," Bosa told reporters after the 49ers' 13-0 win at Levi's Stadium.

That, of course, led to some laughs from the 49ers media. The talented defensive end went on to discuss the play further. "I think the tackle got off at
