Division/Conference Forecast
The San Francisco 49ers are strong early favorites to win their division, the NFC West. The NFC West includes the Arizona Cardinals, the St. Louis Rams, and the Seattle Seahawks. Additionally, many analysts believe the 49ers are strong favorites to win the entire NFC conference as well. After going 13-3 last year in Jim Harbaugh’s first season as Head Coach, the 49ers seemed poised to make a serious run at the Super Bowl.
