Can you feel that, San Francisco 49ers fans? The NFL Playoffs are almost here.

San Francisco will play its final game of the regular season on Sunday afternoon when they face the Los Angeles Rams at Levi’s Stadium.

The 49ers (12-4) aren’t expected to play all of their regulars in light of clinching the top spot in the NFC, while the Rams (9-7) will sit quarterback Matt Stafford after clinching a playoff spot last week.

During Friday’s edition of The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross, the guys were joined by Greg Papa, the radio voice of the 49ers, to preview Sunday’s final tune-up game before the first-round bye week, reflect on Brock Purdy’s incredible year, and much more.
