The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks have both looked like two of the more unstoppable teams when they play at their best. Both teams feature hard hitting aggressive defenses, strong running games, and passing games capable of making big plays behind two young quarterbacks.
Two years ago, the NFC West gave us a 7-9 playoff team. Now, the winner of tonight’s game has to be considered one of the favorites to reach the Super Bowl. The first matchup was an ugly, hard hitting 13-6 win for San Francisco. Seattle cannot win the NFC West tonight with a home victory, but they can clinch a playoff spot and push San Francisco to have to win next week. Green Bay also waits and watches, as a San Francisco loss puts them in the driver seat for the bye.
