Although they made a deeper playoff push a year ago, the 2013 season for the 49ers was far from a letdown. The team continued to improve each week, and heading into the off season know that they have a quarterback and defense that is going to make them contenders for years to come.
The Denver Broncos are back in the Super Bowl. They advanced with a 26-16 win over the Patriots in the Mile High City.
Seahawks gear up for second Super Bowl with a 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC championship Sunday.
Up next for the 49ers are the Carolina Panthers. Although the Panthers came to Candlestick earlier this season and beat San Francisco, the 49ers are the better team and have a very good shot at winning their second straight road playoff game.
The Carolina Panthers had to win the last game of the season to get the NFC South title and a first-round bye so it’s not like it was a time they could rest their players. Steve Smith had to sit out with an injury, and there were not a lot of other options for Cam Newton to rely on, but there need to be.
Seattle has already faced, and beaten, both the Saints and 49ers this season but not the Packers. Does the unknown help or hurt a team in the Playoffs?
I hear Jerry Jones tell me every week that the NFL is a league of parity. Any team can win on any given Sunday, but the Cowboys can’t, not in 2013.
The Dallas Cowboys faced backup quarterbacks the last two weeks, and lost both games. Now, for the third game in a row, Dallas faces a backup quarterback as they face off with the Washington Redskins. Here is a look at the Redskins as Dallas enters a must win game.
Dallas Cowboys fans could look at the bright side: despite a crushing loss to Green Bay after holding a 23-point halftime lead, the Cowboys still have a chance to win their division.
The difference this year is the game is before Thanksgiving. It has the potential to get the Cowboys (5-5) back into a tie for first place with idle Philadelphia, and to end the Giants’ bid to get back into contention after losing their first six games.
Dwayne Harris had a special performance on Sunday night against the Redskins. For the second time this season, the NFL is recognizing him for his efforts.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones singled out fourth receiver Dwayne Harris for his contributions on special teams. On Wednesday, the NFL agreed.
