Giants Vs. 49ers, NFC Championship 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The San Francisco 49ers host the New York Giants in the 2011 NFC Championship Game on Sunday. The two teams have previously met seven times in post-season history, with the 49ers leading the series, 4-3. All four of the 49ers' post-season wins over the Giants have come at home, including an improbable, come-from-behind 39-38 win in the 2002 Playoffs.

The 49ers advanced to the NFC Championship Game with a 36-32 win over the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional Playoffs. In his playoff debut, quarterback Alex Smith completed 24-of-42 pass attempts for 299 yards and three touchdowns, including a 14-yard connection with tight end Vernon Davis with 14 seconds to play.

4-0 all-time in NFC Championship Games, the Giants earned an opportunity for a fifth conference title with a 37-20 road win over the defending Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers last Sunday. Quarterback Eli Manning completed 21-of-33 pass attempts for 330 yards and three touchdowns, two to wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.

In their previous meeting this season, the 49ers scored 15 fourth-quarter points for their 27-20 win at Candlestick Park.
