What’s Going To Happen, Who’s Going To Win the NFC Divisional Round
San Francisco will score. The Packer defense might be stronger against the run than Dallas was last week, but the secondary will get dinked and dunked on. The rested Packers should be far more spry and far better conditioned for the elements.
The NFL format has an unfair advantage for the 1 seed. Green Bay has effectively had three weeks off – Aaron Rodgers and the ones went early in the loss to Detroit before shutting it down – all while San Francisco is playing its fourth game away from Santa Clara in the last five weeks.
It had to play well against the Rams, and that went into overtime. It had to deal with Dallas and all of the drama and the emotion of that thriller. It had to deal with the physical style of Tennessee back in Week 16, and to take this even further, this is going to make it six away game in two months.
This is when the travel, the fight, the lack of a break, and the cold weather will all take a toll.
And the offense balance of a rested and jacked up Green Bay team that’s about to do all the things Dallas didn’t – that’s going to play a part, too.
