Seahawks-Packers NFC Divisional open thread: Who will the 49ers host in the NFC Championship?

New, comments

Let’s see who the 49ers play next week.

Well, it’s time to see who the 49ers play in the NFC Championship. The NFC Divisional gets going with the Seattle Seahawks traveling to Lambeau Field to take on the two-seeded Green Bay Packers.

Logic may dictate the Packers win this, but with the Seahawks rolling in here any prediction is just nuts. The Seahawks are injured, which might help the 49ers, but they are also a divisional opponent which makes an NFC Championship game against them a tossup. The Packers got embarrassed last time they were in Levi’s, but you’d have to think they’d have more than 8 points in a rematch.

In any case, let’s see how this one plays out. Here’s an open thread for the final game of the night. I know a lot of you aren’t fans of either team and some may dislike the Packers more (the 49ers had a huge rivalry with the Packers in the 90s), but maybe we can at least get a good game.

Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay Wisconsin
Game time: Sunday, January 12, 03:00 P.M., PT
TV channel: FOX
Announcers: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
