Game Of The Week: Niners Seek Revenge

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS Sports) — It’s the 2011 NFC Championship Game all over again, only this time Kyle Williams won’t be playing Santa Claus. This is the 49ers’ chance to prove — at least in their minds — that they were the better team nine months ago when Williams’ botched punt returns led to an overtime victory for Big Blue.

Only this is more than that. It’s San Francisco’s chance to prove that it is the best team out there, period.

I know I haven’t seen anyone better. Granted, the 49ers lost at Minnesota. It happens. Sometimes you take one step back to go two steps forward, and all I know is that after that loss the 49ers outscored their next two opponents 79-3 and have the attention of Giants coach Tom Coughlin.
