Win or lose in Super Bowl LIV, the 2019 San Francisco 49ers will go down as one of the 10 best teams in franchise history. The 49ers were founded in 1946 as a charter member of the All-American Football Conference, which merged with the NFL in '49. San Francisco did not win its first championship until 1982, but since then has become one of the league’s premier franchises.
The Seattle Seahawks can’t wait to get back on the road again, as they will travel back east to face the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Wild Card round on Sunday. These teams met at Lincoln Financial Field back on Nov. 24 with Seattle defeating Philadelphia 17-9. Both teams are about as beat up as they come physically, which should make this game a tossup and a battle of attrition.
