Around the NFC West: Week 13

The San Francisco 49ers are now just a game behind the Philadelphia Eagles for the number one seed in the NFC. They beat the Eagles 42-19 in Philadelphia. Brock Purdy was fantastic in the win throwing for 314 yards and four touchdowns. Deebo Samuel caught two of those touchdowns and had 116 yards on the afternoon. The 49ers defense sacked Jalen Hurts three times and held the Eagles to just 46 yards rushing on 18 carries. The 49ers host the Seattle Seahawks in week 13.

It was a third straight win for the Los Angeles Rams this week when they knocked off the Cleveland Browns 38-19. Matthew Stafford had a nice day throwing for 279 yards and three touchdowns. His favorite target on the day was rookie Puke Nacua who had four catches for 105 yards and a touchdown. Kyren Williams added 88 yards and a touchdown on 21 caries. Los Angeles now finds themselves squarely in the hunt for an NFC Wild Card berth. They head to Baltimore to take on the Ravens in week 14.

Seattle dropped their third straight game when they lost 41-35 to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday Night Football. DK Metcalf had a huge night with six catches for 134 yards and 3 touchdowns in the loss. Geno Smith threw for 334 yards on the night, but it was not enough as the Seahawks’ defense just could not stop the Cowboys’ offense in the second half. Dallas got points on four of their five second half possessions.

The Arizona Cardinals got their third win of the season 24-10 over the Pittsburgh Steelers. In a game that featured a lengthy weather delay, James Conner rushed for 105 yards and two touchdowns against this old team. That would be enough as the Arizona defense held the Steelers to just 187 yards passing on the afternoon. The Cardinals have their bye in week 14.
