The San Francisco 49ers are back in San Francisco, as they host the Carolina Panthers in a contest featuring two of the hottest teams in the NFL. The 49ers have won five straight games, while the Panthers have won four straight. Both teams are a game back in their respective divisions. The 49ers have one more game with Seattle, while the Panthers have both games remaining against the Saints. They will have opportunities later in the season, but this game is huge for both teams.
This will be your first quarter game thread, and we'll be back with a new thread each quarter. We'll wrap things up with a recap thread.
