Unfortunately the Kansas City Chiefs couldn’t pull out the win against the Cardinals on Sunday as Arizona maintained their slim one game lead in the division.
Luckily we got to witness the San Francisco 49ers (7-6) get embarrassed by the Oakland Raiders (2-11). Their season continues to fall apart after losing to the Seahawks at home last week. If Jim Harbaugh wasn’t on the hot seat two weeks ago, he sure is now.
We all knew the NFC West was the toughest division in the NFL heading into the season. Three teams had double-digit wins at the end of the regular season in 2013. It doesn’t appear to be the case this year with the 49ers needing to win out to get to 10 wins. The St. Louis Rams have defeated their last two opponents by a combined score of 76-0 and have a respectable 6-7 record after starting 1-4. The Rams have wins against the Broncos, as well as wins against their division rivals the Seahawks and 49ers.
Seattle ends the season with three games against each of the teams in the West, facing the 49ers at home this Sunday, traveling to Arizona, then looking to extract revenge for their loss in week 7 to the Rams at CenturyLink Field to end the regular season.
