The NFL is the greatest show on earth for a reason. With touchdowns, big hits and heated rivalries, there is a full-scale drama occurring week-to-week from August to February.
The San Francisco 49ers (10-4-1) have had some major ups and real downs in the 2012-13 season. But overall, with a winning record and a playoff berth, it’s hard to frown on this year's campaign if you're a Faithful.
This 49ers team has gone through some serious change this year, in its second under head coach Jim Harbaugh. But a lot of the time, change comes for the better. The Niners have been looking to build upon the foundation they laid in 2011.
For a second consecutive year under the Harbaugh regime, the 49ers have put together double-digit wins in a season.
The team will cap off this season with a match against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17. The Niners have already locked up a postseason spot but can still claim a first-round bye. The season is not over, but it has already been defined.
In this piece, we'll take a look at San Francisco's season, reflecting on the moments that made it unique.
