Line: 49ers by 1.

The lowdown: Philip Rivers and San Diego are competing for their playoff lives with two games to go, slim as those chances might be. Surprisingly, San Francisco finds itself playing only to finish on a strong note - not for the kind of deep postseason run it had become so used to in the first three years under embattled coach Jim Harbaugh.

Rivers doesn't expect Harbaugh's team to back down one bit at this stage despite the uncomfortable circumstances and the constant questions swirling about Harbaugh.

"It's a late game in December with one week to go," Rivers said. "Two teams are in different circumstances, but both have a lot of prideful guys and guys who are going to give everything." - AP
