Shanahan Eyes No. 1 Seed as 49ers Look Forward

The San Francisco 49ers had an amazing Week 16 game against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. They were reeling from the loss and many observers declared them the best team in the NFL. While that 33-19 loss was heartbreaking for the players and their fans, head coach Kyle Shanahan knows there’s no point in looking back because the Niners can still accomplish all of their goals this season.

The Niners continue to cling to the top seed in the NFC despite having the same 11-4 record as the Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions. If the Niners can beat the Washington Commander in Week 17 and the Los Angeles Rams in the season finale, they will have the No. 1 seed no matter what the Eagles or Lions do.

“We have to win these two games in the next nine days – and I’m going to lose my math – whatever it is,” Shanahan said in an interview with radio station KNBR. “We need a first-round bye, and that’s what we expect. And to do that, we have to win those two games.
