The San Francisco 49ers ordered in pizzas and watched last weekend's playoff games at the team's facility before discovering who their opponent would be Saturday afternoon at Candlestick Park. San Francisco will now try not to get sliced in eight different ways when Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints come to town for an NFC Divisional Round showdown.
The 49ers captured the NFC's No. 2 seed and a first-round bye heading into their first postseason appearance in nine years, thanks to a 13-3 record in the regular season and the franchise's first NFC West title since 2002.
The Saints' propulsion to near-excellence has been going on since bouncing back from their last defeat on Oct. 30 against the St. Louis Rams. They have won nine in a row in the meantime, including last Saturday's 45-28 victory over the Detroit Lions at the Superdome in the opening round of the NFC Playoffs.
Date & Time: Saturday, January 14th, 4:30 p.m. ET
Location: Candlestick Park, San Francisco, CA
Announcers: Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa
