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 aren't anywhere near where they want to be five games into the regular season, but they're also not exactly down on themselves either as their bye week gets underway.

The loss sent the 49ers to 2-3 on the year after defeats at the hands of the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks in previous weeks, and at the moment they face a sizable deficit in the NFC West behind the 5-0 Cardinals and 4-1 Los Angeles Rams.
