Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Tom Brady

14. San Francisco 49ers (LW: 16)

They made it interesting late, but the San Francisco 49ers escaped New Jersey with a critical road victory against the struggling Giants. Now at 6-4 and tied with the Seattle Seahawks for second place in the NFC West, the 49ers appear to slowly be reviving a season that was once on life support. Their offense still has yet to break the 30-point mark – San Francisco’s only game with more than 31 points came via an interception return for a touchdown – and only two of their six wins have been by double digits, but the 49ers will now host four of their final six games after winning two straight on the road.
