Don’t count out San Francisco just yet on “Monday Night Football” with the 49ers still in the playoff mix and Buffalo coming to town.
The 49ers (5-6) are just a game behind Arizona for the final NFC Wild Card spot, although the Cardinals already have a head-to-head victory over San Francisco. While the 49ers are technically the home team, their game against the Bills and next week against Washington will be held in State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Az., as Santa Clara County, home to San Francisco’s Levi’s Stadium, temporarily banned all sports for three weeks.
Buffalo (8-3) appears well on its way to winning a division title for the first time since 1995. It hang on for a win against the Chargers in Week 12, despite Justin Herbert’s best efforts completing a Hail Mary at the end of the game. The offseason acquisition of receiver Stefon Diggs has yielded dividends, as the former Viking ranks sixth among receivers with 945 yards and the Josh Allen-led passing attack ranks seventh in the NFL.
This is technically each team’s only appearance on “Monday Night Football” this year, but the Bills played a game on Monday afternoon in Week 6 against the Chiefs due to a COVID-related postponement.
