The San Francisco 49ers handled their business Sunday morning, defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 33-14. The 49ers can clinch a playoff spot in Week 15, and they got some early help. The Philadelphia Eagles arelosing to the Minnesota Vikings with two minutes left. If that score holds, the 49ers clinch a playoff berth if the Tennessee Titans can knock off the Arizona Cardinals this afternoon.
We've got this open thread for that game, as well as the Jets-Panthers contest. If the Panthers lose, the 49ers would climb into the No. 5 seed position. The Seahawks had little trouble with the New York Giants, so the division becomes that much more difficult to secure. The Seahawks finish the season with home games against the Cardinals and Rams, so a pair of losses seems highly unlikely.
