The San Francisco 49ers control their own destiny to win the NFC West and will try not to look past the visiting Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. San Francisco, which also owns the best record in the NFC, is coming off a 48-46 victory at New Orleans and finishes the season with a pair of division games against the Los Angeles Rams and at Seattle in a contest that could decide the West.

The maturation process is going well for Jimmy Garoppolo as the young 49ers quarterback has thrown 18 touchdown passes against five interceptions in his last seven games after recording seven TDs and six picks in his first six contests. “He’s continued to make big throws and stuff, but he’s obviously eliminated some of the turnovers, which I think is huge,” San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters. “Sometimes when guys make a bunch of big plays and turnovers, the only way to get them to eliminate the turnovers is to stop trying to make those big plays. I don’t think Jimmy has done that. He’s continued to make big plays, maybe even made more of them, and the turnovers have gone way down, which has been a huge step in the right direction.” Atlanta started the season 1-7 but has won three of its last five games after a 40-20 victory over Carolina last week but the win came with a cost. Wide receiver Calvin Ridley (abdomen) and cornerback Desmond Trufant (broken forearm) are out for the season after sustaining injuries against the Panthers.
