Join Matt Andruscavage and former 49ers running back Dexter Carter as they break down the 49ers’ loss to the Falcons, the playoff possibilities and Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Despite this being the third loss of the season (all of them at the buzzer), the 49ers are unshaken. They will be ready to right the ship against the Rams and will see the return of cornerbacks Richard Sherman and K’Waun Williams, who were out against the Falcons.
If the 49ers win out, they will have home field advantage throughout the playoffs. If they lose Saturday, they can still win the division and either a first round by or even home field advantage, with a win over Seattle. The season is far from over and these last two games will tell us a lot about where things are.
In other notes, George Kittle will become the first 49er since Anquan Boldin to have back to back 1,000 yard seasons if he gets 112 yards the rest of the way.
Kittle, Kyle Juszczyk, Nick Bosa, and Richard Sherman were voted to the Pro Bowl. There were also 8 alternates.
