The NFC Championship game between San Francisco 49ers vs Seattle Seahawks are all set. Both teams are from the strongest division NFC West that will embark to a fierce rivalry, which also happen to be managed by two former college rival coach -- Jim Harbaugh (Stanford) and Pete Caroll (USC).

NFC Championship Game

Date and Time: Saturday January 19th, 2014. 6:30 PM ET

Where: CenturyLink Field Seattle, W.A.

TV: FOX

The San Francisco 49ers rolled to the NFC Conference championship for the third straight year after soundly beating Carolina Panthers in Charlotte over the weekend. The 23-10 victory was a collective effort by the 49ers by showcasing their superior defense and offense that compensate each other.

Colin Kaepernick completed 15 of 28 passes for 196 yards and ran for a touchdown then rip open his shirt with both hands mocking Cam Newton’s Superman end zone celebration.

Receiver Anquan Boldin and running back Frank Gore were the workhorse but it was it was Vernon Davis clutch play that set the tone for the 49ers. All cylinders were working for San Francisco with their 4th ranked defense on stopping a run showed up.

Linebacker Ahmad Brooks stopped Newton on a fourth-down quarterback sneak early in the second and Donte Whitner interception later on sealed the game for San Francisco.

However, the 49ers (12-4) will face an even tougher road challenge this week when they go into CenturyLink Field for a NFC Conference championship showdown with the Seattle Seahawks.

Obviously, Seattle (13-3) has home advantage which known as the NFL’s most difficult environment for visiting teams. But hey, 49ers should be immune to noise since they win big back to back on the road in Green Bay and Charlotte.

Seahawks and 49ers squared off with one victory each in their head-to-head matchup this regular season. Oddsmakers however have the Seahawks listed as 3.5- point favorites for this Sunday’s contest.

Seattle’s 23-15 victory against New Orleans Saints over the weekend has earned mixed reactions but in the end Seahawks defense hold on to their lead. Their offense is averaging just 20 points per game over the last five games.

49ers vs Seahawks head-to-head

Sept. 15, 2013 - Seattle beat San Francisco, 29-3 Marshawn Lynch (SEA) - 28 carries, 98 yards, 2 TD (minus Michael Crabtree)

Dec. 8, 2013 - San Francisco beat Seattle, 19-17 Frank Gore (SF) - 17 carries, 110 yards (Plus Crabtree)

49ers vs Seahawks Prediction: Incomplete pass might the best play. I mean when the two top defensive team in the league meet, patience will be the key. Both teams should stick what has been working and be patient about it.

San Francisco key to win: the team should score more points early on the board to set momentum. They are capable of doing so with the weapons they’ve got (Crabtree, Boldin, Vernon). Let Gore be gore. He’s the key to latest win against the Hawks, so there’s no reason of stopping it. And defense should show up like they did in Carolina to stop Marshawn Lynch.

Seattle Seahawks key to win: Noise is given in the 12th man army. Protect Russell Wilson more often. Give the ball to Beastmode Lynch.

With that said, my 49ers vs Seahawks prediction; 49ers will win 27-24 due to their snowballed momentum on the road.
