Going into the 2012 NFL season, the NFC West was one Super Bowl contender, two contenders for second place and the rebuilding St. Louis Rams.
On a wild opening Sunday of NFL action, fans learned why the San Francisco 49ers will most likely be in the playoffs with a shot at the Super Bowl. But they also saw two pretty good defenses in the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks, and a St. Louis Rams team that might not win much, but will make some games closer than expected.
The 49ers took down the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday in a game not many thought they would win. Frank Gore ran strong, Randy Moss (remember him?) caught a touchdown pass and the Niners defense contained the dangerous Packers offense. And according to TMZ – someone explain to me why that site is digging up dirt in sports? – Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers lost a bet to one of the singers from the R&B group Boyz II Men and has to wear 49ers quarterback Alex Smith’s jersey!
