Who knew a few weeks ago we would still be in the running for the #1 seed? Sure, it's not super likely but it's not entirely unlikely either. The Bears have been trending upwards for weeks and need this win to have a shot to make the playoffs. Hardly an easy recipe for the Packers. The Panthers, while not to be mistaken with a top tier NFC team, has just the right amount of upset in them to ruin the Saints day in Carolina.
That leaves the Seahawks taking care of business against the 49ers team that has had more of their share of injury bug than any other team I can think of. Yet, they keep on fighting. Good coaching keeps the healthy players available fighting hard. Just ask the Cardinals.
I expect a valiant effort from them. Hell, it might even be a lot closer than we would think or like but as much as the 49ers would love to keep us from the #1 seed, it just won't be enough. Pete has the players ready and #1, #2 or #3 seed, he wants a winning streak headed into the playoffs.
Aros' Fearless Prediction: Seahawks 31 - 49ers 16
Aros' Fearless Record: 12-3
