After shutting down the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round, the San Francisco 49ers will look to continue their run to a Super Bowl victory next weekend in Atlanta.
They will face an Atlanta Falcons team that will be hungry for more after holding off the Seattle Seahawks.
The win by Atlanta snapped two streaks.
One was Seattle’s line of six straight wins in the regular season and playoffs. In breaking this, Atlanta broke another streak that has fans and players alike breathing a sigh of relief.
After all, every time they make the playoffs, the team seems to hit a proverbial wall. They were 0-4 in their last four postseason appearances.
A win will do wonders for their confidence heading into their final home playoff game this season, but does the team have enough collective weapons to beat the 49ers?
I don’t think they do.
They are a good team. However, the 49ers are a great team. Possibly the best.
It’s almost unfair how many ways they can beat you. Their running game is headed by the power back, Frank Gore. He continued a strong season with over 100 yards rushing against the Packers last Saturday.
