After over four months of football, we’ve finally reached the end of the NFL regular season!

The San Francisco 49ers are riding high on a nine-game win streak, the longest for the Red & Gold since the 1992-93 season. The Niners will close out the regular season at home against the Arizona Cardinals, a team they beat in Mexico City back in Week 11.

San Francisco currently has the lead in the all-time series with Arizona at 33-29. The Red & Gold are coming off a thrilling overtime win in Week 17 against the Las Vegas Raiders, while the Cardinals are currently on a six-game losing streak.

Despite the two sides vastly different ambitions this year, the 49ers will not take the visitors likely, especially with the No. 1 seed in the NFC still in play.

“For me, you never underestimate anyone. There’s no room to underestimate anyone. There’s just room to go out and just play your best,” defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans said Thursday. “It doesn’t matter who you line up against, if you’re doing your best, it really doesn’t matter who you’re going against. There is no letdown in this league. There is no week off, when you suit up, it’s time to go out and play and be your absolute best and it does not matter who’s across from you. If you’re not your best, then you can get embarrassed each and every week, no matter what’s the team’s record, no matter who’s on the other side that’s what this league is about. You’re going to each and every Sunday, each and every time you go out, you have to be at your absolute best.”

What time does the Week 18 game start?

Kickoff is set for 1:25 p.m. PST on Sunday, Jan. 8th at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Where can I watch the game?

The game will air live on FOX. Chris Myers (play-by-play) and Robert Smith (color analyst) will be on the call. Jen Hale (sideline reporter) will join them.
