Week 6 vs. Giants
The rematch of the NFC Championship Game will give the 49ers an opportunity to make amends for a disappointing end to their season and could play a pivotal role in determining home-field advantage for the 2012 postseason.

However, the salacious rhetoric of Gregg Williams' pregame speech and the revelation of the bounty program will ensure this regular-season matchup possesses the intensity of a playoff game.
Week 15 at Patriots
