San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers
The 49ers are on the upset trail. They already took down Dallas 23-17 on the road last week and now will have to defeat the Packers in Green Bay if they have any shot of advancing yet again.
Green Bay enjoyed a bye last week, and they will enter this matchup well-rested and ready to embark upon a deep postseason run. But they need to take it one game at a time and get by San Francisco first.
Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 P.M. EST on Saturday, January 22nd, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Betting Analysis for San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers NFL
San Francisco 49ers Betting Stats & Analysis
There were plenty of analysts who predicted the Cowboys were Super Bowl bound this season. Instead, the 49ers spoiled any chance of that with a win last week.
Offensively, it was the running game that carried San Francisco once again. Eli Mitchell and Deebo Samuel combined for 168 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the night. This running attack is lethal when wide receiver/running back Deebo Samuel gets involved.
Quarterback Jimmy Garropolo’s job is to play under center and simply not lose the game for the Niners. He does not need to be a hero by any means.
Jimmy G finished 16-25 with no touchdowns and one interception. While they obviously could have gone without the interception, Garoppolo did his job and gave the Niners a chance to win.
The defense was remarkable against the high-powered Dallas offense. They limited Dak Prescott to just 254 yards through the air and one touchdown to go along with an interception. Star running back Ezekiel Elliot was also held to just 31 yards on the ground.
It was a quality team win on the road for the 49ers. But they will be tested once again on Saturday night against Green Bay.
Containing an Aaron Rodgers-led offense is one of the hardest jobs in football. Can San Francisco do it?
Possibly, but it is going to take all hands on deck. They are going to need the d-line to constantly harass him in the backfield and the secondary to hold strong and communicate on the deep ball.
Limiting Rodgers will be the key to a win for San Francisco.
Green Bay Packers Betting Stats & Analysis
The Green Bay Packers very well might be the best team in the NFL.
They finished in the top half of the league in points scored per game on offense and in points surrendered on defense.
Rodgers finished a potential MVP campaign with over 4,100 yards passing, 37 touchdowns, and just four interceptions. Although the MVP decision could come down to the wire, Rodgers is the favorite to win the award.
Green Bay featured a strong running attack during the season between the duo of A.J. Dillion and Aaron Jones. The duo combined for over 1,600 yards on the ground and nine touchdowns. They were both vital to the offense, as they provided opposing defenses something else to think about, so they couldn’t just focus on purely stopping the pass.
This allowed Rodgers to be even better.
But you might wonder what is different about this Green Bay team? After all, Rodgers has been terrific in many different seasons, and he still only has one Super Bowl under his belt.
The defense is the difference-maker for this team.
They finished ninth in total yards allowed per contest. But it is the balance that is impressive. The Packers were 10th in limiting passing yards and 11th in limiting rushing yards.
They will need to step up and protect against the creative run game of San Francisco. We mentioned how San Francisco needs to find a way to contain Aaron Rodgers to be successful. For Green Bay, their main goal should be honing in on Deebo Samuel and making sure he is not the one to beat them.
