The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers are fulfilling their prophecies of being favorites to emerge from the NFC and battle in the NFC Championship football game this evening. Mobile sophomore NFL quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick square off for the third time this season when we watch 49ers vs Seahawks online free live streaming on Fox.
Of the four teams remaining in the 2014 NFL Playoffs, only the 49ers had to play in the Wild Card round before the Divisional series. They now enter today’s NFC Championship game riding an eight-game winning streak with each game won in that streak a must-win game to have gotten the defending NFC champs to this point.
For San Francisco to advance after having taken down the Packers by a field goal in the Wild Card round and then the Panthers last week, they will have to win at CenturyLink Field where only one visiting team, the Arizona Cardinals, has won a game in the past two years. It’s a daunting task for the 49ers considering what happened to them earlier this year when they visited the Seahawks on their turf.
In the past two meetings between the 49ers and Seahawks in Seattle, San Francisco has been outscored by a wide margin of 71-16. Little has gone right for the 49ers in Seattle including seven turnovers against, an inability to move the ball against the Seahawks top-ranked defense, and an even greater inability to slow down quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Marshawn Lynch.
Though the Seahawks are favored to win today, Kaepernick is 4-1 during the postseason in his young NFL career and he will have his full compliment of wide receivers at his disposal today including Anquan Boldin and tight end Vernon Davis, the latter of whom has been hurt most of the year and caught a touchdown against Carolina last week.
While much of the press surrounding today’s game will be the match up between Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick, the running back battle between Lynch and Frank Gore is equally as important, if not more important. Seattle has managed to keep Gore’s average yards per game under 50 at CenturyLink Field, but this is the NFL Playoffs and Gore will be playing with a chip on his shoulder.
The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks will kick-off their 2014 NFC Championship football game at a start time of 6:30pm EST / 3:30pm PST. This game will follow the pattern of previous NFC playoff game and be televised on Fox, so if you want to watch 49ers vs Seahawks HD on your TV, find the Fox channel number in your town’s local listings.
An alternative to watch the NFC Championship game online streaming live on Fox via a phone, tablet, iPad or other device is by utilizing the Fox Sports Go streaming service here. In order to use this service, you must have a cable television subscription via either SuddenLink, AT&T U-Verse, Optimum Midcontinent Communications, Xfinity or Wow! Anyone not using those cable providers will have to rely on DirecTV’s NFL Sunday ticket to live stream 49ers vs Seahawks today to see who will win the NFC Championship, the final score and one of the two Super Bowl teams that will be determined today. My prediction is the Seahawks pull this game out over the 49ers in dramatic fashion.
