Let's face it. The San Francisco 49ers, sitting at 4-8, are all but eliminated from playoff contention. No matter how strong they finish, they won't make it. However, statistically, they have not yet been eliminated. According to MakeNFLPlayoffs.com, the 49ers still have a 0.00096 percent chance to make the postseason.

What exactly would it take? Well, the 49ers would have to win all of their final four games, finishing at 8-8, have the Seattle Seahawks lose all of their final four games, and then get some help in the form of losses from another playoff contender. Then they might sneak in as a sixth seed. The odds of a mass extinction event likely seem better, but there you go.
