A victory over the Rams this Sunday would give San Francisco a first-round bye in the NFC Playoffs.
It has been a long time since the San Francisco 49ers played some meaningful football in the regular season's final week. Thanks to a great year under new head coach Jim Harbaugh, they'll be doing so later in January as well.
Having already captured their first division title and postseason trip in nine years, one would think the Niners would be antsy at getting postseason play underway. However, a victory over the St. Louis Rams this Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome would give San Francisco a first-round bye in the NFC Playoffs.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, January 1; 1:00pm ET
Location: Edward Jones Dome, St. Louis, Missouri
Announcers:, Tim Ryan and Jennifer Hale
