The playoffs start this weekend for the 49ers and Seahawks.  Their Week 17 matchup has big playoff seeding implications with home field advantage on the line.

The 49ers need to win the game to take the top seed in the NFC and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.  The Seahawks need to win the game and have the Packers win their regular season finale.

The Sunday Night Football game will have a guest worthy of the big game to raise the 12 Flag in Seattle.  Former Seahawks linebacker Brian “The Boz” Bosworth will do the honors.
