Green Bay Packers Preview
The Green Bay Packers are back. They had an amazing season that saw them go 13-3 through the regular season. They grabbed the number to seed in the NFC and after beating Seattle, the Packers are now in the NFC title game for the first time since 2016. Green bay will now be looking for their first appearance in the Super Bowl since 2010. They will also be looking for revenge for a 37-8 loss right here at Levi’s stadium back in November. In the NFC Divisional Round, the Packers won by a score of 28-23 and it was their 6th win in a row. The offense has been solid all year but it has been their defense that has fueled them of late. Since allowing 37 points in the loss to the Niners, the Packers have allowed just 15.7 ppg in their last six games The defense will be tested in this one as the Niners have one of the best offenses in the league. The offense has been rather average of late as the Packers have averaged just 24.3 ppg over their last six games. The last two times that these teams have met in the postseason, the Niners won. Can the Packers keep their strong run going and punch their ticket to the Super Bowl? We shall see.
San Francisco 49ers Preview
The San Francisco 49ers are back in the postseason for the first time since 2013 when they lost to Seattle in the NFC title game by a score of 23-17. The 49ers had been a bit mediocre down the stretch of the regular season as they went 3-2 in their final five games and all five games were decided by five points or less. The defense was their main struggle as the Niners allowed 31.8 ppg over their final four regular-season games but the defense bounce back strong last week against the Vikings as they held them to 10 points in the 17-point win. San Fran is now 14-3 on the year and they have gone 7-2 here at home for the year. The Niners have been strong on both sides of the ball as they are 4th in total offense and 2nd in scoring, putting up 29.9 ppg while on defense they are 2nd in yards allowed and 8th in points allowed, giving up 19.4 ppg. San Fran has allowed 31.8 ppg and has allowed 18.6 ppg at home for the year and they could have a psychological edge after beating the Packers 37-8 here at home back in November.
