The Tampa Bay Buccaneers march into Candlestick this weekend at 6-3. Oh, how the 49ers would like to be 6-3 right now.
The reality is that the 3-6 49ers have dropped every game they've played against the NFC South this season. Moreover, they lost the three games by a combined eight points.
San Francisco will play out the season with their backs against the wall in the NFL's scrappiest division, while the Buccaneers are going toe-to-toe with the heavyweights of the NFC.
