The 49ers are back at it today facing a surprising 6-3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad that's in the thick of the NFC South race. I wouldn't say this is a must win for the 49ers but it would certainly be a big win. And really in looking at it, one could make the argument it's a must-win. If the 49ers win their remaining divisional games and nothing else they'd finish 7-9. Now that might be enough to win the NFC West, but it might very well take 8-8. To finish 8-8 the 49ers have to win a non-divisional game. Considering they face the Bucs at home and then the Packers and Chargers on the road, I'm thinking today's game is the win they need to win. So, let's consider it another must win.
