The 1947 AAFC season was the 49ers' second season. They began the season hoping to improve upon the previous season's output of 9-5, and they had a similar output this season, 8-4-2.[1] The team did have its first tie[2] in franchise history, a 28-28 standoff in Week 6 against the Baltimore Colts. For the second time in as many seasons, the 49ers placed 2nd[3] in the West division, coming one spot short of playing in the league championship game.
