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.
In their final game of the regular season, the 49ers beat a Cardinal team that was playing for their playoff lives. In a game that they had to win, Arizona put up a valiant effort, but could not beat a San Francisco team that enter the playoffs on a 6 game winning streak.
The NFL revealed Friday that the Chiefs and 49ers each had eight players voted into the Pro Bowl, including running backs Jamaal Charles of Kansas City and Frank Gore of San Francisco.
While the rematch from last year’s NFC Championship Game will not quite live up to the hype that was expected when the season started, it’s still a very interesting match-up. Both teams have plenty to play for and will do everything they can to leave the field Monday with win.
It was obvious after each team’s opening drives that the best team on the field in Tampa Bay was the visitor. While it was a one possession game late, San Francisco dominated their opponent from start to finish, getting a little something from everyone on the way to their 10th win of the season.
There is nothing the couch coach does better than the coach himself, except for clock management.
In a game that they had to win, San Francisco responded. They beat the best team in the NFC, (record-wise) and remain in control of their playoff destiny.
SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his rejuvenated receiving corps led the 49ers to a 23-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams at Candlestick Sunday. “Everyone was down on Kaepernick,” John Madden told […]
The 49ers swept their season series against the Rams due to the play of the defense. While all phases of the team chipped in, it was the San Francisco defense that ensured that they maintain control of their playoff destiny as the 49ers won their second straight game.
Despite the long list of names on the 49ers injury report, the fact remains that they are getting healthier. The Rams, on the other hand have a few players getting over concussions that may not be available Sunday.
