    Less than you'd think. The 49ers hold all the tiebreaks over New Orleans & would have to lose at least 2 more games to give up the bye. Their final 3 games are all in-division, though away, & only the Seachickens in week 16 have any realistic hope of knocking them off unless half the team lands on IR.

    That was Houston's best chance to lose the rest of the way, with Carolina and Indy coming up the next two weeks. Nice job getting outscored 3-17 in the second half and giving up an 80-yard two-minute TD drive to a fifth-round rookie QB. You suck, Cincinnati. Pack up for the offseason. I'd better not see any life out of you on New Year's Day.

    Am I the only one here glad to see Cinci lose this game? I think we win out, but I don't want Cinci to be playing for a playoff spot that final game.

    Agreed.

    You always want divisional opponents to lose. Especially ones that are in a playoff hunt along side you.

    I guess, it'll just be a real shame if BAL would defeat either NE or HOU in a two-way tiebreaker but doesn't get the #1 seed through some stupid three-way-tiebreaker voodoo. And I'm not sure Houston loses again (Carolina, @Indy, Tennessee). I guess I need to... gulp... root for Mr. Tebow next week.

    re; Bengals; maybe Dalton and Green have hit a rookie wall; or maybe it's the improved level of competition. they've lost Bobbie Williams (G) for the year also. hopefully the fight will be out of them by week 17.
    I'm definitely rooting for Tebow, let alone rooting against the Patrots.

    Only way that can happen is if NE, BAL, HOU and PIT all lose one game in their next three with Houston's loss vs Panthers (thereby winning by AFC conference record).

    Aside that, Baltimore has clinched SoV tiebreakers over both HOU and NE.

    Disagree on both counts.

    The loss to the Cards puts SF in must win territory and if Jim has a chance to beat the Steelers but decides to rest say Patrick Willis and they lose it could have ramifications on the 9ers and the Ravens (can John deal with the pressure of losing yet another division title to the Steelers and having to play on the road in the playoffs only to lose).

    In fairness to you I see you responded before Sunday's game but even if SF beat the Cards, I am confident that Jim would go balls out for his team to beat a club that he could potentially play in the SB and until the top seed is no longer a possibility every game is a must win.

    Why would SF rest players at this point? They are at the least fighting for the #2 seed with the Saints, and with that a first round bye in the playoffs.
