Niners triumph over Seahawks: Game of Inches

Al Pacino's famous speech in the hit football movie 'Any Given Sunday' is just about as cheesy and pulpy as you can get when it comes to football-inspired speeches. Pacino's character, coach Tony D'Amanto delivers, 'life’s this game of inches. So is football. Because in either game, life or football, the margin for error is so small -- I mean one-half a step too late, or too early, and you don’t quite make it. One-half second too slow, too fast, you don’t quite catch it.'

Niners Saints shootout provides game of the year

Entering Week Fourteen, the NFC remained in the balance. The premier conference in the NFL has proven to be a blood bath this year as the 10-2 San Francisco 49ers and the 10-2 New Orleans Saints met in the Superdome in a matchup that was sure to deliver - and deliver it did. Jimmy Garoppolo and co. clutched victory from the jaws of defeat with Robbie Gould's game-winning 30-yard field goal.
