This has been one really odd NFL season. Who would have thought the 49ers would be 6-4 and in third place in their division behind Arizona, a team that is 7-4 after obliterating the Colts yesterday? The Seahawks are still in first place in that NFC West with a 10-1 record. The Harbaugh brothers met last year in the Super Bowl, but now both of their teams are struggling to even make it back to the playoffs. Look for the 49ers to come out swinging tonight as they attempt a late season run and to break a two game losing streak.

On the other side of tonight's match-up, you have the Redksins sitting at 3-7. As bad as that sounds, they are still not completely eliminated from playoff consideration since their division has the Cowboys and Eagles tied with 6-5 records, with the Giants are just one game up on Washington with a 4-7 record. Can the Shanahan Father and Son duo make a run?

Is there a player or coach in tonight's game you might want working for the Texans next year?
