The final game of the 2019 NFL regular season pairs the 49ers and Seahawks in an NFC West duel with plenty of playoff implications.
Seattle (11-4) enters the day a game behind San Francisco (12-3) in the standings. Due to tiebreaker, though, Sunday’s matchup is a winner-take-all bout for the division title.

The Seahawks captured a massive victory in Week 10 over the 49ers in their first matchup of the year, knocking off then-undefeated San Francisco with a field goal as the buzzer sounded in overtime. Since then, the two Super Bowl contenders have been on a collision course for playoff seeding in the competitive NFC.
Because the Packers came back to beat the Lions to finish 13-3, the 49ers would get the No. 1 seed with a win; the Seahawks would get the No. 3 seed with a win. The loser will be a No. 5 seed and will play a road game on wild-card weekend.
