Winner of 49ers vs. Packers will Draw Panthers in Divisional Round

Streeter Lecka

By virtue of the Saints 26-24 win over the Eagles, the Packers would draw the Panthers with a win on Sunday.

Though they didn't play, the Packers may have caught a break Saturday tonight.

By virtue of the Saints 26-24 upset of the heavily favored Eagles, the winner of tomorrow's NFC wildcard game draws a more favorable matchup against the Panthers. While a trip to Carolina isn't without its pitfalls, it's certainly preferable to a trip to Seattle. The number one seeded Seahawks have lost only once at home since Russell Wilson became the starting quarterback.*

The Saints will also opens up the possibility, though remote, that the Packers could host another game at Lambeau field this season. Should they win their next two games and if New Orleans pulls another upset, the Packers would host the Saints for the NFC title game. Needless to say, that's of little concern right now. The Packers need to take care of business first with a win tomorrow.
