The Seahawks and 49ers met again on Sunday – this time for the NFC Championship and a berth to the Super Bowl.

Game time in Seattle is 3:30 p.m. (FOX 13, KIRO 100.7 AM, 97.3 FM).

The teams splitting the season series with each home team coming away the winner. In the most recent matchup, the 49ers pulled out a 19-17 victory at home, taking the lead right before halftime and never relinquishing it.

Earlier in the season at CenturyLink Field, however, the Seahawks dominate the 49ers in a 29-3 win. The Seahawks held the 49ers to just 207 total yards and forced five turnovers, including three interceptions by Colin Kaepernick.
