After an epic 36-32 win over the New Orleans Saints, a game that became an instant classic, the San Francisco 49ers must now wait to see who they will face in the NFC Championship and where they will face them.
This afternoon, the New York Giants will travel to Lambeau Field to play the Green Bay Packers. The winner of that matchup will face the 49ers in the NFC Championship. Should the Packers win, the San Francisco 49ers will travel to the The Frozen Tundra in Green Bay. However, should the New York Giants win, the Candlestick Park will host the NFC Championship game for the first time since January of 1998.
Kickoff for the Giants an Packers is at 1:30 PM Pacific and will be aired on FOX.
