Week 10 schedule

The 49ers will be on their bye this week, which means all the 3-5 teams will either move into a tie with them, or slip further behind. Given how the strength of schedule looks, losses by the Bucs, Chiefs, Washington and/or Texans would move them ahead of the 49ers. It is a busy week for bad teams. The Cowboys-Bucs and Jaguars-Ravens will each move one team into a tie with the 49ers.
