On Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers will host the New York Giants in a rematch of last season’s NFC title game. This is a great test for the 49ers as they are once again facing the Giants (third time in two seasons) and this will be a good measuring point to see how good this team really is.
There’ s been a lot banter going back and forth this week and for the 49ers, this could be viewed as an opportunity to get payback. Or the 49ers can ignore that approach and just go out and perform well.
But aside from this tough rematch, the 49ers will face rival Seattle the following Thursday. That’s two games in five days. This isn’t something new as the 49ers were involved in a Thursday game last year. But this time, the 49ers stay at home.
