The last time that Green Bay took the field was their final regular-season game, a 37-30 loss to the Detroit Lions. By that time, the Packers had secured their playoff spot. Against the Lions, wide receiver Allen Lazard caught five passes for two touchdowns and 75 yards.

San Francisco ran away with 16 points in the first half, then sat with them to get the win. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel scored a one rushing touchdown. Placekicker Robbie Gould was solid perfect with three field goals.

For this NFC Divisional Round game, the Packers rank first in the league when it comes to interceptions, with only seven on the season. The 49ers have the most forced fumbles in the NFL with 22.

When it comes to history in the NFL playoffs, both of these teams have a lot of important names they can share. Green Bay can toss up Vince Lombardi, Bart Starr, Paul Hornung, and Jerry Kramer, all the way up to Rodgers and running back Aaron Jones. San Francisco, for its part, can offer Bill Walsh, Joe Montana, Dwight Clark, Jerry Rice, and onward up to Jimmy G and Samuel. These teams have a lot of pride entering Saturday night’s game.
