3. San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers could have had a bye week, but since their division opponents have a better grade, they slide to the #5 seed. With some early struggles on offense, Colin Kaepernick has finally had his weapons come back and regained momentum as he did last year.

The 49ers have the look of a Super Bowl sleeper, as they can play and compete with anyone. The offense is the main issue, as it must stay consistent and not turn the ball over against, as some of the premiere offenses could certainly capitalize upon it.

The 49ers can go as far as Kaepernick leads them, and he may lead them to the big dance once again.
