In a surprising turn of events, the Packers managed to secure a victory over the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas during the previous weekend.
Now, they face the daunting task of challenging the NFC’s top seed if they wish to progress to the NFC Championship Game.
Once again, the Packers find themselves as substantial underdogs in this matchup, with ESPN’s FPI estimating their chances of winning at just 21.4%. In contrast, the 49ers are heavily favored with a 78.6% likelihood of emerging victorious, according to the FPI.
The 49ers concluded the regular season with an impressive 12-5 overall record, earning them the coveted top seed in the NFC. They are currently the frontrunners in the race to clinch the conference title and secure a spot in Super Bowl LVIII.
This game marks the second divisional clash of the weekend and is scheduled to kick off immediately following the Ravens-Texans matchup.
Make sure to tune in at 8:15 p.m. ET on FOX to catch all the action. Both the Packers and 49ers are ready to roll in this one.
