    49ers: The 49ers were heavy favorites to take the division and make a deep run into the playoffs. They did not disappoint taking the division with 10-6 record. A 4-2 division record was the difference. The niners D was story once again by putting up big time takeaway numbers picking off opposing QB's 35 times. The niners offense could use some help averaging 24th in PPG and 22nd in total yards. 39 turnovers and a 41% 3rd conversion rate shows slowed down the offense. Once the niners got down into the red zone they were tough to stop with 80% red zone efficiency.

    Rams: The Rams finished the year at .500, good enough for 2nd in the division. The rams have to focus on getting QB Sam Bradford some help. St Louis ranked 27th in PPG and a horrendous 30th in Passing Yards. The Rams Defense showed they could rush the passer racking up 52 sacks against opposing QB's. They'll be in business if they turn some of those sacks into more takeaways. The Rams also had a lot of drives stall out early converting on only 41% of 3rd downs.

    Cardinals: Arizona finished 3rd at 1 game under .500. They could not get the job done at home boasting a dismal 3-5 record in Glendale. The Cardinals finished 18th in PPG and 16th, numbers that aren't going to cut it if your searching for a playoff birth. The Cardinals lead the division in total yards but also gave up the most yards on defense. The Cardinals still have yet to find an answer at the QB position, something that has been plaguing them since the departure of Kurt Warner. Staying on the field after 3rd down gave the Cardinals fits as well boasting a 41% conversion rate. They'll look to find an answer at the QB position and shore up the horrendous defense this off season.

    Seahawks: The Seahawks found themselves in the cellar and year's end with a 6-10 record. Seattle ranked 23rd in points PPG and dead last in both total offense and passing yards. Seattle needs to make a decision on whether or not Russell Wilson is their guy and if so get the man some help! The Seattle defense could use some help as well giving up nearly 5,300 yards and a division low 30 sacks. Seattle was able to hawk 31 picks on opposing offenses. Seattle's run game struggled mustering only 9 touchdowns.


    Stat of the year: The Arizona Cardinals had the only positive points differential in the division and placed 3rd.​

    I fixed the first one for you (49ers) with the correct table parameters. Hope this helps.
