The second round of the NFL playoffs kickoff on Saturday night, and the Green Bay Packers will play the San Francisco 49ers out in the Bay Area. Both of these teams are some of the most storied franchises in the history of the NFL and both of them will be looking to reach the NFC championship game with a victory here on Saturday night out in California. This should be one of the best games of the weekend between two quality teams here on Saturday night as Green Bay and San Francisco look to reach the NFC title game and get one step closer to potentially playing in another Super Bowl and bring home another title.
It was a roller coaster of a season for the Green Bay Packers throughout the regular season. They barely snuck into the postseason with a winning record after grabbing nine victories in 17 games and then they shocked the world in their opening playoff game. They handed out a beating to the Dallas Cowboys on the road in Dallas in their opening postseason game and now they get to face the San Francisco 49ers. As they look to advance to the NFC championship game and pick up their second set of the postseason.
Jordan Love has been playing fantastic football coming down the final stretch of the season and now he has an opportunity to lead the Green Bay Packers to an NFC title game during his first year starting in the NFL. They will need to mistake free football throughout this game on Saturday night if they want to get the job done here in San Francisco and the number one seed in the NFC and establish themselves as a legitimate Super Bowl contender in the process. Green Bay has put together an impressive streak to close out the regular season and open up the postseason and now they have an opportunity to pull off another upset here on Saturday night. They will look to get the job done against San Francisco, but they will have to find a way to shut down Christian McCaffrey and the high-powered 49ers offense.

The San Francisco 49ers put together an incredible regular season, and now they will look to kick off their postseason run with a victory on Saturday night at home against the Green Bay Packers. They are the number one seed in the NFC after their performance throughout the regular season, and they will get the luxury of having to miss a week of the postseason. But for many teams that has ended up being a death sentence for them, and that is something San Francisco will be looking to avoid. They get the added benefit of playing at home throughout the playoffs as long as they continue to win this week and next weekend to get themselves into the Super Bowl.
Brock Purdy has looked incredible behind Center after returning from his injury in last year’s NFC championship game and he will lead the San Francisco 49ers back to the NFC championship game for the second consecutive season. They will be playing a solid Green Bay Packers team that is coming off of an upset of the Dallas Cowboys here in this one as they look too end their Cinderella run and advance further into the postseason. They need their weapons to step up in this game as Christian McCaffrey could likely have a big game on the ground and wide receivers Deebo Samuel, and Brandon Aiyuk as well as tight end George Kittle will be massive factors throughout this game on Saturday night.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- San Francisco is 5-3 at home
- San Francisco is 12-5 as a favorite
- Green Bay is 3-4 as a road underdog
