The Niners come out of the bye week with some good news. Quite a few of their players are coming back from injury and news came today that NaVorro Bowman ran a 40 yard dash faster than his combine earlier in his career. Getting one of their defensive leaders back would be a huge boost to this unit that has played well this year.
The Niners come out of the bye with a division game against the St. Louis Rams. The Rams always pose a threat as was witnessed on their Monday Night game earlier this season. After that game, the team flies to New Orleans and faces a Saints team that is virtually unbeatable at home. But, the Niners almost beat them last year if not for a controversial call on Ahmad Brooks. Following that game, the Niners fly to New York and face a Giants team that could be very good or very bad depending on the week. No way to ever tell with that team. The team finishes their season series vs. the NFC East at home against the Washington Redskins.
For the last part of the season, the Niners have their season series with the Seahawks with a game in between in Oakland against the Raiders. The Seahawks haven't played well in a couple weeks and seem vulnerable at the moment. With Arizona in control of the division, the Niners and Seahawks may be battling for a wild card spot. These games will be crucial. The Niners finish the season with home games versus the Chargers and Cardinals. If the Niners can get a good win streak going, they could catch the Cardinals for the division. This should be an exciting 2nd half of the season with all the key players expected to come back!
