San Francisco will hit the road to play in frigid Lambeau Field, hoping to advance and perhaps play Seattle.
On Sunday evening, the Green Bay Packers will play host to the San Francisco 49ers at venerable Lambeau Field.
Green Bay gets to host the game as an NFC North champion, despite having an 8-7-1 record compared to San Francisco's 12-4 mark. The Packers beat the Chicago Bears 33-28 last weekend after getting Aaron Rodgers back for the first time since the two teams met in October.
San Francisco has been on a terrific roll in recent weeks, winning its last six games. The 49ers have been riding high behind a defense that ranks seven against the pass and fourth versus the run. The one Achilles heel for San Francisco has been passing the ball, ranking 30th with 186.2 yards through the air per game.
Over at CBS Sports, the eight experts give us an even split, with four standing on each side. As for our guys at SB Nation, all six are going with the road-warrior 49ers to advance.
