While the New York Giants are still alive in the postseason and head to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers in the NFC wild-card round, their 2017 opponents became official on Sunday.

The Giants will have four road games on the West Coast next season, traveling to face the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. 

In addition to home and road games against their division rivals, New York will travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next year.

Bowles and Petty on OT win 00:01:58
Jets head coach Todd Bowles and quarterback Bryce Petty discuss the Jets' 23-17 OT win against San Francisco.

Bilal Powell ran for 145 yards, including the game-ending 19-yard touchdown in overtime, to help Bryce Petty and the New York Jets rally from 14 points down to beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 in overtime on Sunday.

Petty threw an interception on his first pass of the game and the Jets (4-9) trailed 14-0 less than 5 minutes into the game. San Francisco (1-12) led 17-3 at halftime, but fell flat after that and lost a franchise-worst 12th straight game.

Powell took over from there and scored his second TD of the game on New York's first possession of overtime after Petty's scramble and 26-yard pass to Robby Anderson put the Jets in field goal range.

Bent, SNY.TV: 

During the season, Bent's Game Analysis charts games for some of the Jets' upcoming opponents, enabling a breakdown of what to watch out for on gameday…

The 49ers season got off to a great start when they shut out the Rams 28-0 in their opener. Unfortunately, they've failed to win since then, with all but three of their losses being by double digits. While, on paper, this looks like the Jets' best remaining chance to get another win this year, the 49ers will be viewing the game in similar fashion. History is against the Jets, as they've only beaten the 49ers twice in their history and just once since 1983. It's also been six years since the Jets won a game in the Pacific Time Zone. 

Let's break down the positional groupings (BGA-style!) for the 49ers to try and highlight what to watch out for.

Offensive tackle Anthony Davis, whom the San Francisco 49ers drafted with the 11th pick in 2010, is looking to get back into the game after a short semi-retirement. Davis last played in 2014, when he missed the last four games due to a concussion. He then sat out last season after questioning the Niners' desire to field a winning team while his brain and body healed.

Davis is still the property of the Niners by virtue of the long-term deal he inked back in 2013 that expires after the 2019 season, so any other team that wishes to vie for his services must acquire them via a trade.

The Giants, who were hoping to bring in veteran free agent Eugene Monroe to bolster their offensive line this summer, are likely interested, but how much would they be willing to pay to land a player that has not played in nearly two seasons in unknown.

Colin Kaepernick will not play again this season, after landing on injured reserve for a torn labrum in his shoulder. But, his 49ers career may be over, too, as he was benched in favor of their backup.

So, should the New York Jets look into trading for the quarterback?

Peter King floats the Jets as one of the options for the 49ers if they want to deal the QB.
