High 'Opes podcast: 49ers an easier playoff opponent for Vikings?

The 'Niners went 13-3, but just how good are they?
Xavier Rhodes

Did the 49ers play a soft schedule to boost their defensive numbers? Can Jimmy Garoppolo rise to the occasion in his first career playoff game against a hot Vikings defense? 

Those are just a couple of the questions raised in the latest episode of the High 'Opes podcast. 

The High 'Opes podcast will soon be available to subscribe to on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and everywhere podcasts are found.
