Packers vs. 49ers: Six matchups and a prediction from the San Francisco side

New, comments

Niners Nation did a video preview of the Packers and 49ers' game this Saturday, looking at some key matchups.

Ahead of the NFC Divisional playoff game between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers, David Fucillo of Niners Nation broke down six key areas of the game and determined who he thinks has the edge in each. Unsurprisingly, he thinks the Packers have the edge in the passing game and the Niners have the edge in the rushing game. That much is obvious. The other areas are very interesting though, and I think we could have quite a debate about the 'X-Factor' category. In fact, I think I'll do a post with a poll on that very subject later this week.

Here's the video:

I enjoy the conclusion: Even though David thinks the Packers have the edge in four out of his six selected categories, the 49ers are going to win! Okay, so they're at home and Colin Kaepernick could end up going HAM, but I found that funny.

Anyway, agree or disagree with these points? I'm curious what you guys think.
