My daughter is learning about inequality equations at school this week and, while helping her come up with some examples, I thought of a fitting one for this weekend’s NFC Championship game between the Seahawks and the 49ers.
12 + 3 > 49
That is, the key to a Seahawks victory is to maximize our home field advantage with the “12th Man” and improve the play of its QB Russell Wilson. For Seattle to beat the red-hot 49ers, the home team will need the fans to step up their disruptive antics and Wilson will need to step up his passing game. If numbers 12 and 3 can perform at their usual high level, the Seahawks will win a close battle.
The Seahawks have been the talk of the town this week and people here are super excited about the prospect of seeing Seattle win its first Super Bowl in a couple of weeks. We just wish we had an easier opponent this weekend.
The 49ers are probably a tougher test for the Seahawks than either of the AFC teams they would face if they were to advance to the Super Bowl.
It’s going to be a tough, hard-fought game with the outcome likely to be decided in the last couple of minutes. I’m really hoping that my inequality equation is correct.
