The day has arrived!
Today the Carolina Panthers host the San Francisco 49ers in their first playoff game since the 2008 season. They face a tough San Francisco team, the winner moves on to Seattle.

Keys to a Panthers Victory:
- Brandon Lafell must show up. We will need a tall possession receiver today against the physical San Fran defense.
- Contain Kaepernick in the pocket. His legs are more dangerous in keeping plays alive than his mediocre passing ability.
- Defensive points. If the defense can score or at least give the Panthers the ball inside the ten, we win.
Niners - 13
Panthers - 24
