Huge game for your niners tho, not nearly as big for seattle. I could definitely see a niners win.
Yeah its big since they have the Cardinals and Cowboys right behind them. 49ers need to focus on football and not get caught up in the rivalry stuff between these two teams but both teams are full of Alpha dogs so that won't happen. should be fun.
This game reminds me a lot of the 2009 game where the Saints hosted the Patriots on MNF looking to show the world how good they were. If the Seahawks go on to win the SB they will probably look back at this as the signature win of their regular season. I don't think they will lose another game home or road this year just riding the momentum from this.
Not sure if this was posted during the game or not but apparently Seattle fans caused another earthquake tonight with their cheering. Seismographs recorded a 1-2 magnitude quake during Bennett's fumble return for a TD.
Panthers have to be loving this though. Saints routine is way thrown off the last few weeks. Short week from Sunday to Thursday, then 11 days off, long trip to Seattle, a night spent in the airport because the plane broke down, get back home for another short week and even that game gets flexed from noon to 3:30.
Football teams thrive on routine. It's not an excuse but it is a factor. Especially late in the season when you want to be fine-tuning things and getting momentum for the playoffs.
