NFC Wildcard Game Thread: 49ers vs. Packers

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Open game thread for the 49ers vs. Packers NFC Wildcard game.

Just one game remains in the always wild Wildcard Weekend as the San Francisco 49ers travel to Lambeau to take on the 8-7-1 Green Bay Packers.

For Patriots fans, we can enjoy this one worry free as the team's playoff opponent is set: the Patriots will host the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium at 8:15 PM ET on Saturday night.

As for the game itself, I'm once again going with the underdogs in Green Bay.  The Packers are a completely different team with Aaron Rodgers back in the fold, and are a lot better than their record would suggest.  They will have a chance to make a serious run this postseason, and are a more physical team than they have been in year's past.  That being said, I do think the 49ers are the better overall team.  But the frigid weather and the homefield advantage is likely to have some effect on them.  I picked the Saints in Philadelphia yesterday, but the weather at Lambeau isn't even comparable. Greg's Prediction: Packers 27 49ers 20
