All hopes of the NFC Championship Game going through San Francisco for one last game at Candlestick Park are over. The victory by the Seahawks over the New Orleans Saints on Saturday will assure that the NFC path to Super Bowl XLVIII goes through CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

The Seahawks remain one of the toughest teams in the NFL to beat at home. They beat the Saints 23-15 in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs.

Seattle now awaits the winner of tomorrow's matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Carolina Panthers. The Seahawks have won 16 of their last 17 games at home.
