There will be many good playoff games this week in the NFL. All four match ups could be great, but I think the best one will be the game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers coming back is an extremely big help for the Packers. Even though he was a little rusty coming off the injury, he still played well enough to put his team over the top. Having Rodgers in at quarterback really seemed to motivate the team and give them confidence. I think the Packers defense has been bolder and aggressive these past few weeks, and they seem to be getting better here late in the season. But this defense is not quite enough to stop the 49ers high flying offense. They will need to be excellent and play their best game.
Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore, are big assets to the 49ers offense. The 49ers offense started the season a little rough and not as good as we saw in the Super Bowl last year, but there have been doing much better in the last few weeks. The defense for San Francisco is much better than the Packers. In fact, they are one of the top defenses in the league. As they say, "Defense Wins Championships", and I think the 49ers defense will be an important key for them to win this game.
I think 49ers will end up beating Rodgers and the Packers by a score of 24-13
Which Wild Card game do you think will be the best?
