The last time the Green Bay Packers played the San Francisco 49ers they were whooped, but these are three reasons they can win this time around.
37 to 8. That was the final score the last time the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers met back in Week 12. And overall, the game was really as ugly as the score makes it seem.
Aaron Rodgers fumbled on the opening possession which eventually resulted in an easy touchdown for the Niner offense, San Francisco dominated the trenches on both sides of the ball, and offensively, Jimmy Garoppolo and Company were incredibly efficient.
However, that game took place nearly two months ago and a lot has changed since then, especially for the Green Bay Packers. While most are going to pick the 49ers to win this game – and I understand why – this has been a very resilient Packers team this season who is capable of beating any team on any day. I mean they are in the NFC Championship game after all.
Of course it won’t be easy, but these are three big reasons that Green Bay can march into Santa Clara and come away with the win this time around.
