The 49ers control their own destiny, and it all starts Saturday night against the Los Angeles Rams.
The 49ers (11-3) currently hold the No. 5 seed in the NFC, but if they beat Los Angeles (8-6) at Levi's Stadium and then go up to Seattle and beat the Seahawks in Week 17, San Francisco will be the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs.
The 49ers enter Saturday's game against the Rams as huge favorites, so anything short of a comfortable win will be a disappointment.
If San Francisco slips up and loses to Los Angeles, the 49ers can start packing for a long journey on the road through the playoffs.
