Brock Purdy and the 49ers advanced to the divisional round of the NFC playoffs on Saturday with an intense 41-23 victory over the Seattle Seahawks to kick off Super Wild Card Weekend.

San Francisco, the No. 2 seed in the NFC bracket, will welcome its next opponent to Levi’s Stadium next weekend, but who will play the 49ers depends on the results of the remaining wild-card games.

If the No. 6 New York Giants beat the No. 3 Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Daniel Jones and Co. Meanwhile, the 49ers will face the winner of Monday night’s Dallas Cowboys-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game in that scenario.

But if the Vikings win on Sunday, Minnesota will travel to face San Francisco and Philadelphia will play the winner of Dallas-Tampa Bay.

Scenario #1 presents some familiar situations for the 49ers. They already beat the Buccaneers in Week 14 of the regular season, and a rematch between the GOAT (Tom Brady) and Mr. Irrelevant (Purdy) is sure to be must-see TV. And after knocking the Cowboys out of the playoffs last year, San Francisco would probably be more than happy to do it again.

After the 49ers passed the Vikings for the No. 2 pick late in the season, it would also be icing on the cake if Purdy sent Kirk Cousins ​​and Co. packing.
