When the 49ers and Seahawks square off Thursday it could mean the end of one of the two’s playoff chances. While neither will be technically eliminated, the loser will essentially need to win out, which is a tough task when considering the two teams remaining schedules.
It was again ugly, but another win nevertheless for the 49ers. The defense gets the game ball again as they are the reason San Francisco won their 3rd straight game.

The 49ers played one of the AFC’s best and lost big. They played an elite team and didn’t play well, so San Francisco was blown out. However, it’s just one loss and one that is no surprise at the end of the day.
