49ers vs. Packers Playoff Game Primer: Game Time, TV Channel, Broadcast Info, and More

15 years after the Brett Favre-Steve Young playoff rivalry was at its peak, the Packers and 49ers meet for a second straight year in the playoffs to renew the franchises' mutual struggle.

On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers host the San Francisco 49ers in a Wild-Card round playoff game which will be the franchises' seventh playoff meeting. All seven have taken place in the past nineteen seasons, including four straight from 1995-1998.

The Packers enter after a thrilling division-clinching win in Chicago last Sunday against the Bears, which featured a 48-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Randall Cobb with 38 seconds left to provide the winning score. With a full complement of weapons on the offensive side of the ball, the Packers will likely need to put points on the board in order to win against a 49ers team which gave up the third-fewest points in the NFL.

Here's everything you'll need to get ready for Sunday's game.
