49ers Playing to Clinch in Potential Candlestick Park Finale

MNFThe San Francisco 49ers must wait another day, and that is just fine with them.

Although a wild-card berth could be theirs this week, the 49ers still have hope to win the NFC West and get a first-round bye. The 49ers need to beat Atlanta on Monday night, win the next week at Arizona and have Seattle lose its finale at home to St. Louis. However, if the 49ers are able to beat the Falcons tonight they will clinch a wild-card berth.

If the 49ers win the division, and Carolina loses its finale to Atlanta, San Francisco would be the No. 1 seed. If not, they’d be the No 2 seed. If the 49ers win out and the Seahawks beat the Rams, the 49ers would be the No. 5 seed.

The 49ers’ chance for a first-round bye became real on Sunday when the Seahawks lost at home to Arizona.

Farewell Candlestick ParkWhile San Francisco has big possibilities, there is also room for disaster. If the 49ers lose twice, they won’t make the playoffs.

Football fans everywhere know of the all time great moments in this stadium. So expect Candlestick Park to be raucous Monday night because of it’s the last regular-season game at Candlestick and the increased playoff hopes. Come on in with us for a historic night as what could be the last game to be played in Candlestick Park has some serious playoff implications as well.
