NFC Divisional Playoff Game Thread: 49ers vs. Panthers

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Open game thread for the 49ers vs. Panthers Divisional Playoff match-up.

The New England Patriots are moving onto the AFC Championship, but there are still two more games to be played on this Sunday.

First on the schedule, we have the San Francisco 49ers traveling to Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina to take on the Carolina Panthers. Kick-off is at 1:05 PM ET and will be broadcast to a national audience on FOX.

While the Patriots don't have a direct stake in this game, it should still be a fun game to watch. The Panthers got the best of the 49ers last time around. The win however, was more about the Panthers' defense than it was about Cam Newton. I'm still not very sold on that Carolina offense, and I see a 49ers team that is starting to peak on that side of the football since the return of Michael Crabtree. This game will still be defined by the defense, but I see the 49ers edge on offense being the reason they pull out the win. Greg's Prediction: 49ers 20 Panthers 16

Feel free to use this post as an open thread to discuss the game!
