8-2 and 9-1. For the first time in years, the Green Bay Packers are playing in one of the biggest games of the second half of the regular season. Not since 2011 have the Packers won eight or more of their first ten games or the San Francisco 49ers started 9-1. That year, both teams lost in the playoffs to the New York Giants, who went on to win Super Bowl XLVI.
But now, eight years later, the two teams sit in the top two spots of the NFC after 11 weeks of the regular season, and they are on a collision course this weekend. So big is this matchup that the NFL flexed it out of the late afternoon time slot and into prime time, giving this contest the Sunday Night Football treatment that it thoroughly deserves.
This game also features coaches who know each other well, with Matt LaFleur having worked for Kyle Shanahan for several years. The two were together in Houston, Washington, and Atlanta, and Shanahan employs LaFleur’s brother Mike now.
All of those storylines add up to a great game and one that will be beamed into the homes of all NFL fans across the country. Here is when and how to tune in for this big game.
