Packers vs. 49ers, Week 3 2021: Live game updates & discussion

The Packers won in the Bay Area last year against a depleted 49ers roster; can they give San Francisco their first lost of 2021 tonight?

San Francisco 49ers vs Green Bay Packers Set Number: X163452

The Green Bay Packers may have found a way to win at Matt LaFleur’s house of horrors in the 2020 season, but when they beat the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium in week 9, Kyle Shanahan’s team was devastated by injuries. The 49ers roster was a shell of its 2019 self in that game, and the Packers rolled to a comfortable victory after dropping two blowout losses there the previous season.

On Sunday Night Football, the Packers will look to find a path to victory against a 49ers team that is much closer to full strength than it was last season. Unfortunately, the Packers will need to do so without their two best offensive linemen: left tackle David Bakhtiari and do-it-all lineman Elgton Jenkins. Bakhtiari is on the PUP list to start the season and will miss the first six games, while the Packers ruled Jenkins out on Saturday afternoon.

Can the Packers get to 2-1 on the season? Tune in tonight to find out.
