NFC Championship: Packers-49ers open thread

Go Niners.

NFL: NFC Championship-Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs are going to the Super Bowl! As for the NFC, that’s still to be determined. The Green Bay Packers now take on the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.

The 49ers defense has been a heck of a force this season led by defensive coordinator Robert Saleh. On the other side, Kyle Shanahan’s creative playcalling has rejuvenated the Niners offense. There has been concern that the 49ers offense peaked too early in the season, and facing a stout Packers defensive front we’ll find out whether that’s the case tonight.

The Packers have good ole A-a-ron Rodgers at quarterback with his sidekick Davante Adams crossing up every DB to line up across from him. Jimmy Graham is having a resurgence in Green Bay in the twilight of his career, and the Smith brothers head a terrifying Packers pass rush.

Go Niners. Who you got? Let us know.
