49ers’ Defense Will Need To Improve Play In Season Finale

After losing last week to the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers failed to lock up the NFC West. The first team goal of 2013 was to win the division, and they can still do so with a win in the season finale against the Arizona Cardinals. Both the offense and defense have struggled for the last game and a half, however it’s the defense that not only needs to play much better, but should also have no problem carrying San Francisco into the playoffs, with momentum at their back.

NFC West Will Be 49ers To Lose In Years to Come

Despite early season improvements shown by all the teams in the division, and the possibility of a bright future for all of them, the best team by far is San Francisco. The 49ers have all the tools to dominate the division for the time being. If the other teams though can make minor adjustments and stick together, then the division will not be a walkover for long.

Depth Could Be Problem For Arizona Cardinals Against San Francisco 49ers

The Monday Night Game between the Cardinals and 49ers will go far in determining the eventual NFC West winner. Both teams are healthy for the most part, but the Cardinals have so many players banged up, that they will be in trouble if any injuries pop up in the course of the game. The biggest concern for Arizona will be the health of their quarterback who comes into the game already nicked up, and with an offensive line that has allowed the most in the NFL in sacks.
