Monique Jones: Seahawks 30, 49ers 27
The Seahawks may have the biggest advantage in the NFL when it comes to playing at home, but this season they also have benefitted from a suffocating defense. With a Super Bowl berth on the line, the Seahawks squeeze out the win.
Mike Preston: Seahawks 21, 49ers 17
The two teams are very similar except Seattle has a faster and strong defense, and the Seahawks are at home where they seem to play better.
Peter Schmuck: 49ers 23, Seahawks 19
The Niners seem to be gathering steam and they'll overcome an unhappy recent history in Seattle. This is shaping up as a defensive battle, but Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore will deliver a balanced offensive attack that will be just good enough to get back to the Super Bowl.
Matt Vensel: 49ers 23, Seahawks 19
I love Seattle's defense and their poised young quarterback. The 49ers are the NFL's hottest team, though, and will muscle their way to the Super Bowl.
Aaron Wilson: 49ers 27, Seahawks 17
49ers win their third consecutive road playoff game as Colin Kaepernick's composure imitates his commercials, outdueling Russell Wilson as a stout defense led by its athletic group of linebackers prevents Marshawn Lynch from going into "Beast Mode."
Jeff Zrebiec: 49ers 27, Seahawks 24
The Seahawks' home-field advantage is extremely tough to go against, but the 49ers look like the most complete team remaining in the playoffs and their championship game experience bodes well. Colin Kaepernick will outplay Russell Wilson and the 49ers' defense will prove too tough.
