The 49ers might be the Seahawks’ biggest threat in the NFC to getting back to the Super Bowl.

In case you haven’t heard, these two teams don’t like each other at all. Nothing would bring the 49ers and their fans more joy than beating Seattle on their home turf, something they haven’t done since 2011.

At the same time, the Seahawks have made it a habit of pummeling the 49ers at CenturyLink Field, winning their last three home meetings by an average of 20 points.

But San Francisco wants to avenge last season’s NFC title game loss and if they come into the game with more emotion, they may give the Seahawks a run for their money.
