The NFC wild card game is a well-worn rivalry between the 49ers and Packers. Colin Kaepernick dominated the Green Bay defense early in 2013, and now it's time for him to try again with the stage much larger. There's no reason to count out the Packers, however, with the team getting healthy at the right time and boasting a roster prepared for the playoffs.
Game Date/Time and Location: Sunday, Jan. 5, 4:40 p.m. ET at Lucas Oil Field, Indianapolis, Ind.

More on the matchup: Colin Kaepernick had an up-and-down year before Michael Crabtree returned from injury, but the 49ers quarterback was sensational when these sides met in September. He threw for more than 400 yards and three touchdowns in the 34-28 win. It took Kaepernick's best and the game remained close, making this one of the premiere matchups of the weekend. Aaron Rodgers worked his magic in Week 17, and now it's time to try again at home.
