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 have had an extra week off to prepare for their first playoff game in years, but they haven’t taken the time off from preparing. They have been focusing on whichever team they may face and they are looking to be a team that is not only good, but one that is feared.

Try as they might, the Atlanta Falcons were unable to send Tony Gonzalez off with one more win as the surefire first-ballot Hall of Fame tight end played his final NFL game in a 21-20 loss to the new NFC South champion Carolina Panthers.
As the season has finally concluded, I can truly say this has been a huge disappointment for the Atlanta Falcons. A season with such high expectations ended with a 4-12 record. Roddy White’s “SuperBowl or […]

It’s a crazy thought, but after 16 grueling weeks in the NFL, the road to the NFC South Divisional title still goes through Atlanta, GA.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Domenik Hixon with 23 seconds left to lift the Carolina Panthers to a 17-13 win over the New Orleans Saints and clinch the […]
