When the 2013 NFL schedule came out in April, most thought Sunday's matchup between the Seahawks and 49ers at Candlestick Park would decide the NFC West championship. It still can -- the Seahawks will wrap up the division if they win -- but not in the manner originally anticipated. The Seahawks are 11-1, San Francisco 8-4, and the 49ers need a win more than Seattle because they are clinging to the conference's sixth and final playoff spot by a game.
