The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to face off with the Carolina Panthers for the second time this season, but there is a lot more on the line this time.
Seattle has already faced, and beaten, both the Saints and 49ers this season but not the Packers. Does the unknown help or hurt a team in the Playoffs?
Two of the NFL’s most decorated franchises will meet this Sunday when the Packers and 49ers meet in a NFC Wild Card matchup. The winner will move on in the playoffs, while the loser will face a disappointing end to a season that started with much higher aspirations.
Phil Dawson kicked a 22-yard field goal with 26 seconds remaining and the San Francisco 49ers held off the Seattle Seahawks 19-17 on Sunday.
Russell Wilson has shown he has top-tier quarterback skills, well beyond his ability to run.
It looks as though EA Sports manufactured the “eyebrow-shaving” bet that was supposedly setup between quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick.
Russell WIlson gets to keep both of his eyebrows. After Seattle’s 29-3 beat down of the San Francisco 49ers, the big question is which eyebrow will 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick shave off.
Everybody involved knows the NFC West will likely come down to these two nemeses when this season’s all said and done, with a pair of dynamic young quarterbacks leading the way. The 49ers have captured the last two division titles, after Seattle won in 2010 with a losing record.
Unlike most teams who like to watch their next opponent’s most recent game film, Seattle isn’t going to rely on the 49ers/Packers game. Rather, the Hawks are looking back to the 2012 season for the right footage.
One of the most anticipated NFL games of the year just got a little stranger.
