The 8-6 San Francisco 49ers travel to the Music City for a Thursday night showdown with the 9-5 Titans who currently hold the #3 seed in the AFC. The 49ers are red hot as of late, piling up 5 wins in their last six but, putting them smack in the middle of the NFC playoff conversation. With both teams currently holding a playoff spot and crucial seeding implications on the line, we can project both teams’ motivation to be at an all-time high in this one.
