The 49ers are moving on to the divisional round of the postseason after throttling the Seahawks 41-23 at Levi’s Stadium. They’ll host their next playoff game, but it remains to be seen who they’ll play or when they’ll play.
San Francisco could find out its next opponent as early as Sunday afternoon. The Vikings and Giants start their game at 1:30pm Pacific Time. If the Vikings win, the 49ers will host them at Levi’s Stadium. That contest would all but certainly happen Saturday, Jan. 21.
If the Giants upset the Vikings, the 49ers will need to wait a day to find out their opponent. If New York wins, they’ll be the lowest seed left which means they’ll face the No. 1 seed Eagles. San Francisco would then await the winner of the Cowboys-Buccaneers game Monday night. That game would likely be Sunday so the winner isn’t swinging a Monday-to-Saturday turnaround.
