The San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals head into the final week of the season, and both teams have a big reason to win. The 49ers have a chance to win the NFC West and home field advantage if they win and both Seattle and Carolina loses. The Cardinals have a chance to make the playoffs if they win and New Orleans loses. The 49ers do come into this game healthy, only really missing receiver Mario Manningham, who ESPN reported on Dec. 27 was placed on the IR.

At the end of the season, the Arizona Cardinals might be the best team to miss the NFL playoffs. The problem is the parity in the NFC, with so many bad teams. The Cardinals head into this week in a battle at the top of the conference with the New Orleans Saints for the final spot. If the Saints beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they will make the playoffs ahead of the Cardinals, even if Arizona beats San Francisco and ends up with 11 wins on the season. However, if the Saints lose and Cardinals win, Arizona makes it to the playoffs.
Meanwhile, the 49ers have already clinched a playoff spot and still hold out hope that they can pass the Seattle Seahawks in the race for the NFC West crown. If the 49ers win this week and Seattle loses, the 49ers win the NFC West and the Seahawks fall to the wild card. Plus, if the 49ers win and the Carolina Panthers lose, the 49ers can get home field advantage as well.
The San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals live stream kicks off at 4:25 p.m. EST.
