4. San Francisco 49ers (10-1)
Recap: In what was supposed to be a real test for the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12, the Niners ended up dismantling the Green Bay Packers in every facet of the game and lit Green Bay up for 37 points, while holding its offense to just eight points in the winning effort.
Outlook: The Niners are now one of two teams in the NFL to have 10 wins, and a decisive victory over the Packers shows just how real this squad is. San Francisco will have an even tougher test in Week 13, as a road matchup with the Baltimore Ravens is waiting.
3. Seattle Seahawks (9-2)
Recap: The Seattle Seahawks weren’t able to get much going offensively in Week 12, but four Carson Wentz turnovers made things easier on them against the Philadelphia Eagles in the winning effort. Seattle’s defense was solid and didn’t allow its first touchdown of the game until the final minute of regulation.
Outlook: With the Seahawks firmly entrenched in a wild card spot in the NFC, they remain just one game in back of the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC West lead. Seattle will host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.
