NINERS PUNCH TICKET, WAY TOUGHER FOR EAGLES THAN VIKES!

By Sally Fahey

The Niners win over the Seahawks last night made them NFC West champions.

They’re very unlikely to catch the Eagles for the No. 1 seed, or to fall behind the Buccaneers for the No. 4 seed, so the only real question is whether they’ll finish ahead of the Vikings for the No. 2 seed.

Here’s how the NFC playoff picture looks after Thursday night:

CURRENTLY IN

1. Eagles (12-1) Hard to envision a scenario where the road to the Super Bowl doesn’t go through Philadelphia.

2. Vikings (10-3) Likely to win the NFC North, but not looking like a Super Bowl team.

3. 49ers (10-4) Even down to third-string quarterback Brock Purdy, the 49ers look like contenders.

4. Buccaneers (6-7) They don’t look good, but someone has to win the NFC South.

5. Cowboys (10-3) Unlikely to catch the Eagles in the division, which means they’ll probably have to win three road games to reach the Super Bowl.

6. Commanders (7-5-1) Currently have the tiebreaker over the Giants based on a better record within the NFC East.

7. Giants (7-5-1) A big game on Sunday night against the Commanders.
