who has SF played?
I can take your question several different ways, not sure how you actually meant it.
The trivial answer is Packers, Lions, Vikings, Jets and Bills.
If I infer that your unsaid point is that SF has played lesser opponents and thus the relative rankings are incorrect, I won't disagree with you. Obviously (and as many here have already pointed out), the stats referred to are not the whole story. However, I do think that it's the best indicator presently available until the updated DVOA is released later today.
When that happens I fully expect to see the NFC West fully represented in the top ten, and perhaps three of the four in the top five (last week SF, SEA, and AZ were ranked 4, 5, and 6 respectively, and ironically STL was ranked 9th).
The point is that NFC West defenses have been dominant.
