The following is a link to my preview and prediction for this Sunday's NFC Championship Game between the New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers as originally posted on Cappers Picks.
This matchup features a streaky Giants' team that opened the season 6-2, followed that up with just one victory in their next five games, and then turned things around with two dominating wins over the Jets and Cowboys to work their way into the playoffs. They ramped things up to an even higher level by snuffing-out Atlanta 24-2 in the Wildcard Round and stunning the 15-1 Green Bay Packers 37-20 on the road in last Sunday's Divisional Round. New York will be looking to ride this incredible momentum to a second Super Bowl appearance in its past five seasons.
The other half of the equation is the rags to riches San Francisco 49ers. They finished the 2010 season with a 6-10 record and out of the playoffs for the eighth-straight time. Enter Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh and suddenly the 49ers reel-off 13 victories in 16 regular season games and a thrilling 36-32 last-second win over New Orleans in last Saturday's Divisional Round. San Francisco has been especially good at home this season with an 8-1 record in nine tries.
