In a rematch of their Sunday night classic earlier this season, the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers will meet again in prime prime Saturday night for the right to advance to next week’s NFC Championship game.
The Packers (13-4) won that Week 3 thriller 30-28 on Mason Crosby’s 51-yard field goal as time expired. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers led that game-winning drive and is one of the top candidates for yet another MVP award this season after directing the Packers to the conference’s best record and a first-round bye. The home field advantage that also comes with it will be an important factor as temperatures at Lambeau Field are expected to dip into the teens with a wind chill near zero.
The Niners (10-7) are coming off the only upset in the wild-card round, a 23-17 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Despite losing key defenders Nick Bosa (concussion) and Fred Warner (ankle) to injuries, the 49ers dominated for most of the game and held off a late Dallas comeback attempt. The defense will need to play a major role once again if San Francisco hopes to pull off another upset.
