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

Dec 1, 2022 at 10:39 AM--


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 have 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 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.

After the matchup with Miami, the 49ers will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and then travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks.

Below are the current NFC playoff standings.

  1. Philadelphia Eagles (10-1)
  2. Minnesota Vikings (9-2)
  3. San Francisco 49ers (7-4)
  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-6)
  5. Dallas Cowboys (8-3)
  6. New York Giants (7-4)
  7. Washington Commanders (7-5)

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

  • Seattle Seahawks (6-5)
  • Atlanta Falcons (5-7)
  • Detroit Lions (4-7)

There probably wasn't much concern inside the San Francisco 49ers building surrounding running back Christian McCaffrey's availability for Sunday's NFC Championship Game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. When asked about the chances of not playing this weekend, McCaffrey responded, "Zero."
