SAN FRANCISCO (Bleacher Report) — We’ve got a well-rested ‘Niners squad, no doubt properly prepared for battle by one of the league’s finest coaches. They’ll be playing in their building, the legendary Candlestick Park, where several Super Bowl runs went through.

The last three games of San Francisco’s season made it tough to get a good read on them, leading into the playoffs. They scored 41 points on the Patriots in New England in a game they led 31-3 before allowing the Pats to come storming back, threatening to complete a sensational comeback. The ‘Niners held on for the win, but were absolutely dismantled the next week in a 42-13 loss at Seattle.

For a defense considered by many to be the league’s best, they allowed a combined 76 points to two of the teams still playing for the Lombardi trophy. Still, despite the return of the Pack’s two most important defensive pieces, Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson, the better defense belongs to the team by the Bay.
