it with mike shumann. the 9ers were peaking at the right time. they won four straight and looking like super bowl contenders once again. to tampa and colin kaepernick to michael crabtree. great body control and it is 7-049ers. a 10-0 lead and kaep going to air it out and can't see this play enough. in stride and on a collision course with the wall. 52 yards and 12 touchdown receptions on the season. going deep again and crabtree overthrows him. no need for crabtree to do this. he puts the ball back to the line of scrimmage. unnecessary, but you have to like the competitiveness for sure. a loose ball and kendal hunter thank you. the 9ers are 10 and 4 and here is coach harbaugh talking about the crabtree incident. >> they didn't really say it was his fault.
he knows he shouldn't have done it. i think he ran a good route and he was open on the post and he picked up the ball and got hijacked and threw it back in there. he has a heck of an arm. >> he does have a good arm. ever the optimist and not much has changed. the former niners owner in tampa for the game. he for one thinks this year's team is everybody bit as good as last year's. >> they are by far the best team in football. seattle is great. they have had trouble in seattle but they have their players back and their offensive lines back and kaepernick and reminds me of our teams, reminds me of 1988, 1989 and i don't see any reason they can't win the super bowl. >> strong statement. losses by philly and dallas and if they lost in tennessee the niners would be assured a
playoff. 10 seconds left and the game winning field goal and cardinals win it 37-34 and they are 9 and 5 and the 9er does not clinch a playoff spot. the cards will be in seattle next sunday. the seahawks, no setback from their loss to the niners last week. they made life miserable for eli manning. seattle dominated and mar -- marchand lynch going beast mode. new york shut out at home for the first time in 18 years. staying in the nfc west. drew brees and 56 pass attempts and intercepted twice. johnson doing the honors in the end zone. really good looking rookie here and takes the handoff and gone 40 yards. that made it 24-3 and rams stun the saints 27-16. a seven-turnover performance against division rival kansas city and arguably the low point of the season for the
raiders. alex smith is back and dissecting the raiders' secondary today. smith backpedaling on the first play and sets up jamal charles and charles is a fantasy football dream if you had him today. mcgloin picked four times and a pair of fired quarter -- third quarter touchdown passes. career high five touchdown passes. 71 yards here and the game that saw 12 touchdowns and kansas city wins it 56-31. let's hear from alex. >> it was strange being back. we flew to san jose and stayed down there. that was a little different. i didn't think it was all week. i would be lying if i said it wasn't. especially being back in the bay area. it has been awhile since i have been back. >> redskins-falcons and rg iii not going to play the rest of the season and that means it is kurt cousin's time to earn some money. santana moss with 19 seconds
