It’s not often that Aaron Rodgers is made to look pedestrian. That is exactly what happened the last time these two teams played, as San Francisco dominated Green Bay and came away with a 37-8 win in Week 12. Though I think the 49ers are more than capable of repeating this performance in this game I just don’t see it playing out the same way. As a Lions fan I get to see Aaron Rodgers beat up on my team twice a year, and as much as I hate to say it, he won’t let the same thing happen to his team this time around. San Francisco will likely still make a ton of defensive plays to limit Rodgers and company, but I don’t think they can do it every drive like they did back in Week 12. Expect Rodgers to keep the Packers alive in this one and at least make it a close game. Overall, I think that San Francisco has the better team and they win the game. We should see a close one, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see a lot of points hit the scoreboard. San Fran to win. Green Bay to cover. Give me the Over.
Straight Up Pick: San Francisco 49ers
Against the Spread: Green Bay Packers +9
Over/Under: OVER 46.5
