They've met 42 times in the regular season. Both teams have won 21 games.
They've met 8 times in the postseason. Both teams have won 4 games.
Obviously the regular season tie will be go in one's team favor after TNF, but #s that made me go, 'Wow. That's pedicular.'
True be told-as a 43 YOA dude-I consider the 49ers to be our 3rd biggest rival after Philly & Dallas. Yes, I put SF ahead of WFT because 1) the Giants historically own WFT & 2) WFT has sucked for awhile. Also, the Giants-SF playoff games have been so intense & joyous/heartbreaking that I remember where I watched each game & who was watching with me.
