NFC West Standings Recap

San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers — even without QB Jimmy Garoppolo — defeated the Dolphins, 33-17. After Garoppolo left the game early with a leg injury, Brock Purdy took the reigns, throwing for 210 yards and two touchdowns. Christian McCaffrey was instrumental, picking up 66 yards on the ground and 80 yards in the air while adding a touchdown. At 8-4, the 49ers are in first place in the NFC West and control their destiny for the division title.

Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks defeated the Rams 27-23. QB Geno Smith threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf had quite a day, racking up 128 yards and 127 yards, respectively, while adding a touchdown each. The Seahawks are battling the 49ers for the driver’s seat in the NFC West. They’ll look to maintain their position in the race and do their part in Week 14 when they host the Carolina Panthers.

Los Angeles Rams
The Rams may not be mathematically eliminated from the playoff race, but their season is over. Matthew Stafford is on injured reserve, and the Rams are having trouble getting anything going consistently. They’ll host the Raiders in Week 14.
