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.
Their destination next week will be decided by Sunday afternoon, as the Falcons face the Seahawks in a Divisional Round matchup.
The Falcons should be the favorite in this game, coming in as the No. 1 seed in the NFC and a 13-win regular season. Matt Ryan had an unbelievable season at quarterback,
However, the streaking Seahawks should not be counted out at all. Winners of five straight, they defeated RG3 and the Washington Redskins on the road last week in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. One of those wins was a 42-13 thrashing of the 49ers in the second-to-last game of the season.
Russell Wilson has developed into one the best young quarterbacks in the league, and
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.
