Watch San Francisco 49ers vs Carolina Panthers Online

The San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers will battle in a rematch of an earlier game today in the second NFC Divisional Playoff game on NFL Sunday football. Quarterbacks on both sides will be on the run when we watch 49ers vs Panthers online free live streaming on Fox.

The 49ers entered the 2014 NFL Playoffs as a Wild Card team after Seattle won the NFC West. They played in one of the coldest NFL Playoffs game on record last week in Green Bay and narrowly won 23-20, thanks in part due to quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s ability to run outside the pocket. Kaepernick almost single-handedly won the 49ers the game late by converting key third-downs, including the one that led to the game-winning field goal as time expired.

San Francisco faced the Panthers on November 10 at home and lost in a defensive battle by a final score of 10-9. It was a rough game for Colin Kaepernick who only threw for 91 yards and was sacked a total of six times. The 49ers offense was only able to tally 151 total yards of offense, their lowest output the season, and they had won five in a row scoring an average of nearly 35 points per game until Carolina came to town.

The 49ers feel like this is a payback game and they’re more ready this time, especially having won five in a row. Kaepernick is 3-1 in postseason starts after last week’s Green Bay win and has Michael Crabtree back to complete his core receiving group that also includes Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin. Watch Panthers vs 49ers free live online streaming on Fox early on Sunday to see if the 49ers can become the first Wild Card team to advance in round two.

Carolina’s defense will be tasked with containing Kaepernick for a second time knowing that he ran wild against the Packers the week prior. As a group they led the NFL with 60 total sacks and limited opposing offensive units to a mere 15.1 points per game and 301.2 total yards, both good for second in the league to Seattle. The last time the Panthers lost at home was in the season opener to Seattle by a score of 12-7.

While Carolina’s defense has been potent, quarterback Cam Newton needs to find a way to put more points on the board with his offense. They have scored fewer than 17 points in two of their last four games and during that stretch, Newton’s completion percentage has only been 57.1. He’s also thrown two interceptions versus three touchdown passes, so there’s clearly room for improvement, especially considering he threw for only 169 yards against the 49ers previously.

Sunday’s final NFC Divisional Playoff football game featuring the San Francisco 49ers against the Carolina Panthers gets underway at a start time of 1:05pm EST / 10:05am PST. As with yesterday’s first NFC Divisional Playoff, today’s early game will be televised on Fox Sports so you will want to find out what channel Fox is in your local listings to watch an HD presentation of 49ers vs Panthers on your TV.

Fox offers an alternative option to watch Panthers vs 49ers online live free streaming on a phone, iPad, tablet, laptop or other device, but they have placed it behind a pay wall at Fox Sports Go here, or via the Fox Sports Go app, for customers from a select group of cable television providers including SuddenLink, AT&T U-Verse, Optimum Midcontinent Communications, Xfinity and Wow! Unfortunately those of us without access through those providers will have to lean on a subscription to DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket Max to live stream the NFC Divisional Playoffs game between the Panthers and 49ers game free, which also offers the option to watch Fox NFL playoff games or a replay online as well.

Of all the Divisional Playoff Games this weekend, the 49ers have the best shot at pulling an upset over the Panthers and advancing to the Conference Finals. The final score of this game should skew to the lower end.
