The Seahawks will host the Niners in the NFC Championship Game next Sunday for the right to go to the Super Bowl. San Francisco took care of business in Charlotte today, winning their seventh straight game, 23-10.
This matchup for NFC supremacy seemed inevitable the whole season.
The Seahawks lost to the Niners Week 14 in San Francisco, 19-17, but have won the last two meetings in Seattle: 27-3 in Week 2 and 42-13 in Week 16 last year. The two teams have similar ball control, run-centric offenses and tough, physical defenses, and it could be argued that this is the best rivalry in the NFL at the moment. Fitting.
