The first half of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks was a half that was dominated by defenses on both sides, which sort of cut down on the excitement for some people.

The second half, however, has been a different story so far as both teams have come out firing with everything they have to try and secure that trip to the Super Bowl to face off against the Denver Broncos.

In the third quarter, after the 49ers scored on an incredible touchdown pass from Colin Kaepernick to Anquan Boldin, San Francisco kicked the ball back to Seattle, a kick which Doug Baldwin took 69 yards down the right sideline to put his team in tremendous scoring position as they’re down 17-10.

The Seahawks weren’t able to come away with a touchdown, but they were able to get three more points with a field goal to cut the lead down a little bit more at 17-13.

Special teams has definitely been one of the themes in today’s NFC title contest.
