photo ops with former forty-niners players. some free swag and most importantly, a chance to hang out with hundreds of other forty-niners fans in town for the game. so i'm of people who live just a couple of blocks away from la live and then others who had traveled from san jose sacramento, even iowa, new jersey, virginia and brooklyn and what they all have in common is a love for their team and a ton of excitement for tomorrow's game. >> on offense and maybe bang bang out again. we've got next stop super bowl. we've been coming in games candlestick. my dad has been taken to little kids faithful all the >> really nice to be there. it's going to is going to be dogfight man from you know, it's going to go down. >> it's going to be a low scoring game. i'll tell you going to be down to strong as our legs and 5

little bit to stop the boats and the forty-niners pulled out deebo samuel past which led to touchdowns that won jennings. and that was one of the biggest plays in that game. so, you know, is the forty-niners obvsously want to get the most and with the ball, particularly in the running game. but how much of his usage is going to be as a d coy to maybe set things up for for other they clearly want to run the ball. it's part of their identity. their physicality is is one of their defining traits on offense. so that's going to be part of it. >> forty-niners in action tomorrow at 3.30, the sharks taking on old friend joe thorton and the florida and florida team. here we have a look at the action. tell you what the sharks were up almost this entire game, but it went into overtime. as you can see, they lost on a last-second goal. the panthers able to put one home sharks loose at 5 for the panthers have won 9 straight. san jose blew leads of 3 to one and 42 to be exact. that's all we've got
