SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Carlos Rogers had one word to describe what his homecoming in Atlanta will be like when the San Francisco 49ers face the Falcons in Sunday's NFC championship.
Jim Caldwell nearly went undefeated as a rookie coach in Indianapolis three years ago and he's one win away from returning to the Super Bowl as an assistant with Baltimore.
OK, so the name Tom Brady probably rings a bell. Ray Lewis, too. If either makes a key play in the AFC championship game Sunday, no one would be shocked one bit.
SAN FRANCISCO (12-4-1) at ATLANTA (14-3)
Sunday, 3 p.m., Fox
OPENING LINE - 49ers by 3
RECORD VS. SPREAD - San Francisco 10-7; Atlanta 9-7-1
