San Francisco 49ers: Grading the Week 17 Win

Well, we can at least say that the 49ers went out on the right note. It wasn't a pretty win by any means, but a win is a win, and it secured the NFC West for San Francisco.

Even better, the Minnesota Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers, assuring the Niners of a No. 2 seed in the postseason. That means no game this weekend, but home games until the NFC Championship, as long as the team sticks around.

Colin Kaepernick set a career high in passing yardage in this game, Michael Crabtree had a monster day and Frank Gore set a new franchise record for rushing touchdowns.

Aside from the slow start and handful of mistakes, it was a good win for the Niners, who will wait to see which team visits them at Candlestick Park in the divisional round of the playoffs. Here is my report card for the Week 17 win.
