The San Francisco 49ers waited for nine years to get to the playoffs, but they will now play host to two straight postseason games. On Sunday, Candlestick Park will bear witness to the 2012 NFC Championship Game as the New York Giants will come to town, fresh off their upset win over the Green Bay Packers.
The game will start at 3:30 PM PST on Sunday, January 22. The game will be televised nationally on FOX and your announce team for the title game will be Joe Buck on play-by-play, with Troy Aikman as the color analyst and Pam Oliver doing the sideline reporting.
Despite the recent World Series victory by the San Francisco Giants, Sunday's game may just be one of the most anticipated and eagerly-awaited sports games in some time for the Bay Area. It is the last stop before the Super Bowl, so you can bet that the electric atmosphere during last Saturday's game against the New Orleans Saints will just be the beginning. All eyes in Northern California will be on the NFC Championship game.
