Niners Take On Winner of Seahawks vs. Falcons in NFC Championship

Which bird will the San Francisco 49ers be seeing next Sunday on Jan. 20?

They will either be traveling to Atlanta to face the Falcons, or stay home and play the Seattle Seahawks for the right to play in the Superbowl.

Marshawn Lynch is unstoppable once he gets into “Beast Mode.”

The gamblers give the Falcons a three-point edge in this game, but this could really go either way. Expect for a hard-fought, exciting game  that will determine who the 49ers face in the NFC Championship game.
