Prepare to rally behind the Las Vegas Raiders or the New York Giants as the San Francisco 49ers look to secure a playoff spot in Week 14 with a helping hand from one of these two teams.

First, the 49ers must handle business at home against the Seattle Seahawks. The two teams met in Week 12 at Lumen Field, with San Francisco coming out on top 31-13 in the NFC West clash. The 49ers enter the Week 14 rematch as a 10.5-point favorite.

Even with a win, San Francisco still needs to see a victory from either the Raiders or the Giants to guarantee their postseason spot with four games remaining.

The Raiders play host to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. However, Minnesota is a three-point favorite. Both teams are riding two-game losing streaks, making a Raiders win plausible.

A second scenario has the Giants beating the Packers at home on Monday night. Green Bay, which has won three straight and four of its last five, is favored by 6.5 points in that matchup. New York has enjoyed two consecutive wins and hopes for an upset this weekend.

While less likely, another pathway to clinching a playoff spot for the 49ers involves a victory over the Seahawks and a tie in both of the other matchups listed above.

Should all the pieces fall into place in Week 14, the 49ers will be secure in the knowledge that they will be headed to the playoffs for the third consecutive season and the fourth time in the last five years.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan calls claim he can't win a big game 'extremely inaccurate'

By David Bonilla
Feb 14

Kyle Shanahan has faced disappointment in three Super Bowls—twice as the San Francisco 49ers' head coach and once as the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons. He lost all three appearances in dramatic fashion. The first two games saw the coach's teams suffer significant late-game collapses. Sunday's showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs was lost in overtime, despite Shanahan's 49ers seeming in control for much of the contest. It was the coach's second time losing a Super Bowl to the Chiefs. Obviously, three losses in the big game will raise questions about one's ability to get a team over the hump. This is the narrative Shanahan will confront this offseason and beyond, until he guides the 49ers to a championship victory. "I mean, you'd

49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa lobbies for 49ers to keep Chase Young; Kyle Juszczyk addresses his future; Has anyone on the team watched the Super Bowl yet?

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond. Therefore, it's no surprise that Warner felt deeply for his teammate and friend when Greenlaw suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter of Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him. This hurts to watch so much. Via

Klint Kubiak commends Kyle Shanahan after departing 49ers for Saints

By David Bonilla
Feb 15

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
