It’s time to pick the games!
Anthony: 27-17, Packers
While the 49ers have a great defense, I don’t see a team that can match the Packers production if Aaron Rogers and the offense is clicking. I don’t expect much of a high scoring affair and for the most part think this game will be less than thrilling to watch.
Nate: 31-16, 49ers
In week 12, when these guys last played, Green Bay was 1-15 on 3rd down. Davante Adams is healthy, but frankly, they bracket Adams and Richard Sherman locks down the other side. Aaron Rodgers doesn’t trust these guys. The four defensive lineman for San Francisco (Ford, Bosa, Armstead, and Buckner) are all fantastic, and they’re able to hit Rodgers early and often. Green Bay can’t defend tight ends, which plays right into the hands of George Kittle. Close game in the first half, but San Francisco pulls away, and we play them in 2 weeks…
BRaG: 24-17 49ers
If this game came down to Rodgers vs Jimmy G, my call would be different, but SF looks to be more loaded than GB. In fact, the same applies to them vs SEA, and they’re playing at home, not Lambeau. Can Rodgers pull off an upset? Sure, any given Sunday and all that, but it will be an upset if he does.
Adam: Packers, 27-24
This game is a closer pick for me than the AFC contest. But in wanting the Chiefs to continue the revenge tour, I’m going with the Packers to eke out a win here. Aaron Jones and Adams will both be productive against the vaunted 49ers defense. It’ll be a close one.
Dave: 17 – 10, 49ers
Don’t get me wrong, I *want* the Packers to win. Badly. I want nothing more than a Chiefs v Packers SBI rematch on the NFL’s 100 year anniversary. But … I just don’t see it. I think this is an extremely ugly game, honestly, and San Fran comes out on top after a last minute defensive stop. Gross. Chiefs beat whoever wins in the Superbowl …
KCH1EFSFAN: 28, 24 Packers
It’s Aaron Rodgers on the big stage. The running game is clicking. Jimmy Graham seems to have come back to life and Devonte Adams is a beast. Mike Pettine is going to want to avenge the loss earlier in the year. Niners are a good team but I think the moment will be too big for them.
What’s your prediction for the games?
