A day after the Niners lost a tough, hard-fought bout with the Baltimore Ravens, eventually losing 20-17, the Seattle Seahawks pulled off a 34-30 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football.
And as a result, San Francisco moves from the No. 1 seed in the NFC standings all the way down to No. 5:
- New Orleans Saints (10-2)
- Seattle Seahawks (10-2)
- Green Bay Packers (9-3)
- Dallas Cowboys (6-6)
- San Francisco 49ers (10-2)
- Minnesota Vikings (8-4)
The 49ers needed help from the Vikings on Monday night, but ultimately didn’t get it.
