Two teams looking to erase the thoughts of 2012 are the 49ers and Packers. While the 49ers are trying to get back to the Super Bowl, the Packers are facing the team that not only ended their 2012 season, but did so in a rout. Both teams are talented and the winner will be the team to beat in the NFL after week 1.
With fantasy drafts now in full swing, would-be owners are scrambling to unlock the secrets of this year’s draft. To that end, let’s take a closer look at who might be the best QB option this year in fantasy: Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees.

After dismantling the Green Bay Packers on Saturday, the 49ers find themselves back in the NFC Championship Game. With the Falcons holding serve against the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco will travel to Atlanta with one win standing in the way of both teams of a trip to the Super Bowl. By playing a Falcons team who ended the season as the number 1 seed, in the Georgia Dome, the 49ers will be the underdogs, but have to like their chances of pulling off the upset and moving on to the Super Bowl.
The game was close on the scoreboard for the first half, but in the second half, San Francisco dominated the Packers to set up their return to the NFC Championship Game to face either the Falcons or Seahawkss. It was a complete team effort, but in his first playoff game, Colin Kaepernick again proved that he is up to any challenge and lead the charge in an performance that may be the best ever by a quarterback.
With multiple Pro Bowlers on both sides of the ball, the match-up between the 49ers and Packers will not be lacking talent. Both teams are well coached, disciplined and hungry for a win. The difference in this game will come down to the attention to 3 key areas and some luck.
By beating the Packers in Week 1, in Green Bay no less, San Francisco should have plenty of confidence that they can beat the NFC North Champs again on Saturday. While the early season victory means nothing now, the fact that the game is in San Francisco does. The Packers have struggled outside of Lambeau this year, and can’t be happy to have to go to San Francisco to try and keep their season alive.
