*Bonus Pick*

I've been missing on these picks recently, so here goes...

Sunday Night Football (8:20, NBC): An NFC West showdown for the season finale of SNF, with the 49ers ruining the Seahawks perfect home record, and clinching the NFC West title on the road.
  • The first meeting between these two divisional rivals, was a low-scoring affair with the Niners winning 13-6 back in Week 7. Expect the same in this one, as both teams have outstanding defenses (I should know, I had both units on my fantasy football team), as the 49ers will come up with a big play or two to be the difference.
