The playoffs are here and for the first time since the 2013 season, the San Francisco 49ers will be participating in a Divisional Round matchup.
The Minnesota Vikings are coming to town and this matchup should shape up into a good one.
Join Matt Andruscavage and former 49ers running back Dexter Carter as they break down this matchup to find where each team has an advantage.
The 49ers are getting linebacker Kwon Alexander, safety Jaquiski Tartt, and defensive end Dee Ford back to their defense, making that unit even better than it was.
Minnesota, on the other hand, has players down in the secondary and Xavier Rhodes is not the same player he has been, which could mean some big gains by the 49er offense.
The game should come down to how each defense handles the opposition’s running game as well as how they protect their quarterback.
