Game Time Set for NFC Championship Game at Century Link
The Seattle Seahawks will host the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 19 at 3:30 p.m.
The game will be the third meeting between the NFC West rivals and features two of the best defenses in the NFL. Seattle ranks first in the NFL in points allowed, yards allowed, pass yards allowed, turnovers and interceptions. San Francisco is in the top seven of the NFL in the same categories.
The two teams have split the season series with Seattle winning their home game 29-3 while the Niners won in San Francisco 19-17.
Single-game tickets for the big contest will go on sale Monday at 10:00 a.m. and according to Seahawks.com, will only be available to residents of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska and Hawaii.
Seahawk fans will be ready for the game as the vaunted 12th Man was responsible for another minor earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch run versus the Saints in the Divisional Round. The fans are part of the reason why Seattle has not lost a home playoff game since 2004 winning six straight since losing to the Rams that season.
The 49ers will try to repeat their performance from 2011 when they went into Seattle and beat the Seahawks 19-17. Seattle has lost only one game at Century Link Field in the past two seasons.
San Francisco is playing in their third straight NFC Championship beating Atlanta in 2013 and losing to the New York Giants in 2012.
The Seahawks game, and the AFC Championship prior to it, will be broadcast on News Talk KIT and ESPN Yakima.
