What’s on Tap – 10/14: NLCS Game 1, NFC Championship Rematch, etc.


The title of this post basically says it all. It definitely looks like a fantastic sports Sunday by the bay, as the MLB playoffs and the NFL season are in full swing.

The San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals kick off the NLCS with Game 1 this evening at AT&T Park in a battle of the past two World Series Champions. It will be Madison Bumgarner against Lance Lynn in the series’ opener.

Now on to football. The Niners welcome in the New York Giants to Candlestick Park for a rematch of the 2012 NFC Championship game. I’m sure that any mention of Kyle Williams will make Niners’ fans sick at this point, so I will digress. Anyway…should be a great game at the ‘Stick.

The Raiders will travel to Atlanta to take on the undefeated Falcons at the Georgia Dome. This will be quite a test for Dennis Allen and his team, who have not looked particularly sharp this season at all, explaining their 1-3 record.
