3 Things San Francisco 49ers Must Do to Protect NFC West Title

One of the larger hurdles the San Francisco 49ers must overcome this season is something they maintain no control over: their schedule.

After a 13-3 regular season that included a trip to the NFC Championship game, the 49ers must deal with having the target on their backs. Along with that, a difficult road schedule means the 49ers will be tested early and often.

Their fellow division members include the Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals, but it is the Seahawks who seem most likely to contend with the 49ers for the NFC West crown.

The following are things the 49ers must do to repeat as NFC West champions.
