Packers-49ers NFC wild-card preview


NFC: 49ers (12-4) at Packers (8-7-1)

When/where: 4:40; Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wis.

TV/radio: Ch. 13; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Line: 49ers by 2½, 46

Notes: Should division champions be guaranteed a home playoff game even if they have a worse record than their wild-card opponent? San Francisco is the lone road favorite this weekend, and it beat Green Bay at home 34-28 in Week 1, getting 208 receiving yards and a touchdown from Anquan Boldin. How well can quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Colin Kaepernick play in the brutal cold of Lambeau in January? The 49ers knocked out the Packers 45-31 in last year's playoffs, but that was in San Francisco. The 49ers played only two road games against playoff teams this season and lost both, to Seattle and New Orleans.

Greg Auman's pick: Packers 21, 49ers 20
