Matchups for the NFC championship game Sunday between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks at the CenturyLink Field:
LaMichael James might only get a couple of chances to touch the ball when the San Francisco 49ers face the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC championship game Sunday.
Alfred Morris has been snubbed in the Pro Bowl selections so far but he has one more chance to make the trip to Hawaii.
It was the kind of a game deserving of the burgeoning rivalry, a chippy affair very much in doubt until Frank Gore ripped off a run that saved some self-respect if not the season for the San Francisco 49ers.
San Francisco averaged 34.8 points per game during a five-game winning streak that lasted into its Nov. 3 bye week. Since returning from the time off, however, the 49ers have encountered a glaring inability to get into the end zone, losing first to the Carolina Panthers, 10-9, on Nov. 10 before falling, 23-20, on the road to the New Orleans Saints this past Sunday.
During its last two games the Washington Redskins defense faced arguably the two best running backs in the NFL. Now comes another in Frank Gore.
San Francisco comes into Monday night's matchup with the Redskins struggling a bit offensively, but that doesn't mean the 49ers are without talent.
After a remarkable postseason run — with those speedy legs — by the tattooed play-caller, the Baltimore Ravens exposed plenty of flaws in handing Kaepernick and Co. a 34-31 loss Sunday despite San Francisco's second-half rally.
Colin Kaepernick is a mystery man under center, a strong-armed passer one moment and a 25-year-old kid who can run right out of the pocket for a huge gain the next.
One guy is a bruiser of a back, just as comfortable running through defenders as around them.
Ray Rice has known nothing but winning since he came into the NFL.
Don't let the Harbaugh brothers divert your attention from a coaching matchup that will have a greater effect on the final outcome of Super Bowl XLVII -- or, as we might eventually remember it, the first Super Bowl of the Quarterback Zone Read Era.
Make way Joe Montana and Steve Young. Colin Kaepernick is leading a brash new group of 49ers to the Super Bowl.
This is my 22nd season playing fantasy football, which means I've been emotionally invested in the outcomes of more games than I care to count at a level I would rather not admit. There have been plenty of highs and plenty of lows. But I have never experienced those extremes the way I did this past week — and the game didn't involve my team.
Jim Harbaugh's San Francisco 49ers sure have a knack for leaving tough losses behind.
"We want to win. We'll do whatever it takes," running back Frank Gore says. "We have that Super Bowl feel, we didn't finish like we wanted to, and we have a chance to get back."
"We're healthy, we're a great team and we're willing to do whatever it takes to get that ring," 49ers running back Frank Gore said. "We're playing great ball."
