49ers are on the Rise in this Week's NFL Power Rankings

The San Francisco 49ers spent a majority of this season in the cellar. After an 0-9 start, they sat firmly in either the 31st or 32nd spot on everyone's power rankings. But now the 49ers are finally rising up the charts after rattling off four-straight wins.
