Although they made a deeper playoff push a year ago, the 2013 season for the 49ers was far from a letdown. The team continued to improve each week, and heading into the off season know that they have a quarterback and defense that is going to make them contenders for years to come.
With the 49ers looking red-hot and the Panthers well-rested, this game figures to be another close one. Vegas oddsmakers concur, assigning this game the tightest line of the weekend of San Francisco by 1.5 points.
Up next for the 49ers are the Carolina Panthers. Although the Panthers came to Candlestick earlier this season and beat San Francisco, the 49ers are the better team and have a very good shot at winning their second straight road playoff game.
The Carolina Panthers had to win the last game of the season to get the NFC South title and a first-round bye so it’s not like it was a time they could rest their players. Steve Smith had to sit out with an injury, and there were not a lot of other options for Cam Newton to rely on, but there need to be.
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?
Each team has just 16 chances to distinguish itself from the pack in order to secure a playoff spot and hopefully a bid in the Super Bowl. The question is, quite simply, will the Super Bowl champion emerge from the AFC or NFC?
