Sunday NFL Playoff Odds: San Francisco vs Carolina
San Francisco 49ers: Planning return trip to NFC title game
San Francisco is planning its return trip to the NFC title game this weekend. They need a win on Sunday on the road over the upstart Panthers to make it happen. San Francisco finished with a 12-4 record and a 6-2 mark on the road. A win would give the 49ers their third straight appearance in the NFC title game. San Francisco will look to return the favor to Carolina for a regular-season loss on November 10 at home by a score of 10-9. Michael Crabtree did not play in the loss to the Panthers earlier this season due to an Achilles injury. He has been almost unstoppable during his playoff career though.
Carolina Panthers: Magical season comes to an end
Carolina has enjoyed a magical ride this season, but is not good enough to win a playoff game yet. Cam Newton will be making his playoff debut on Sunday at home, which is a major confidence booster. Carolina started the season 1-3 before reeling off eight straight wins. They dropped a decision to New Orleans and then won three straight games to finish the regular-season, securing the NFC South title and a first-round bye. The Panthers will need to stop Colin Kaepernick for a second straight time this season if they want to advance to the NFC title game next week.
