This one is a high stakes game for both teams. Both teams have already clinched a playoff spot, but the outcome of this game will determine the NFC West champion and could have drastic seeding consequences for both teams. Whichever team wins this game wins the NFC West. Whichever team loses this game drops to the No. 5 seed and a first round playoff game on the road. In the unlikely event of a tie, the 49ers will win the West and they will be the No. 3 seed, and the Seahawks will be the No. 5 seed. If the 49ers win they will clinch the NFC West, and they will be the No. 1 seed. That would mean a first round bye and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. If the 49ers lose they will fall all the way to the No. 5 seed, which means a first round road game. If the Seahawks win they win the NFC West and secure the No. 3 seed and a first round home game. A Seahawks loss drops them to the No. 5 seed and a first round playoff game on the road.
It’s the Seahawks and the 49ers in a high stakes game between two of the best teams in the NFL. What a great way to end the regular season. Enjoy the game everybody.
