CHARLOTTE, N.C. - There was no point in trying to convince anyone they weren’t already thinking about the Seattle Seahawks.

So, just minutes after the San Francisco 49ers thumped the Carolina Panthers 23-10 Sunday, they didn’t bother with charades.

No one would have believed them anyway.

Niner after Niner spoke openly and confidently about what they, and everyone, knows will be a tough task this coming Sunday: Knocking off the top-seeded Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in the NFC championship game (6:30 p.m. EST, CTV/FOX).

The winner advances to Super Bowl XLVIII.
