It's fitting that when the Packers and 49ers meet in the NFC divisional round on Saturday, there'll be history afoot at Lambeau Field. This game is the ninth playoff game between the two, an NFL record, and it's one where San Francisco is looking to win for multiple reasons.

For starters, a win would give the Niners the 5-4 edge in the series and more importantly, it would help avenge a Week 3 loss wherein they scored with too much time left on the clock, allowing Green Bay to march down the field and kick a field goal to win the game. The last time these two teams faced off in the postseason was 2019 when San Francisco won 37-20 en route to a Super Bowl berth.

The Packers are well-rested and coming off a bye, while the 49ers are coming off a controversial, down-to-the-wire win over Dallas in the wild-card round. In that game, Jimmy Garoppolo didn't play particularly well, throwing for just 172 yards and a pick. But, he got bailed out by a strong ground game, an imposing defense and 14 penalties against the Cowboys, including four for a first down.

Notably, though, Garoppolo apparently entered the game with a thumb injury and left the game with both a thumb and a newfound shoulder injury. It remains to be seen how healthy he'll be for this game against the Packers, but he regardless, he said he'll suit up and take the field on Saturday.

Green Bay has injuries of its own it's dealing with, notably to All-Pro offensive lineman David Bakhtiari and All-Pro defensive back Jaire Alexander. Both have been limited in practice in the lead up to this game, so it remains to be seen whether they'll play or not.

Throughout the regular season, Green Bay ranked 10th in both total offense and scoring offense thanks to the work of Aaron Rodgers, who seems in line to pick up his fourth NFL MVP award. San Francisco, meanwhile, ranked ninth in total defense and third in scoring defense, meaning this may prove to be a strength-on-strength matchup.
