The Green Bay Packers overcame some significant injuries to win the NFC North and make the playoffs, but they still lost in the first round. Here is the story of their season.
The Green Bay Packers have had trouble stopping the 49ers in their last two meetings. Now they have to try and beat them in the playoffs while facing injury issues on defense.
The Green Bay Packers pulled off a huge win to make the playoffs, but now they have to face off with the San Francisco 49ers. They will have to work to prevent a repeat of what happened when these two met last season.
For a game that figured to have little scoring, one team had no problems putting points on the board. With back-up quarterback Colin Kaepernick running the show, the San Francisco 49ers beat the Chicago Bears up and down the field and once again put themselves in the conversation as the best team in the NFC.
The injury report for the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears is unremarkable except for one big name, Jay Cutler. Chicago will be without it’s starting quarterback who suffered a concussion last week and has not been cleared to play. Even without Cutler, San Francisco will have their hands full on Monday Night as they faced a very talented team.
Although the Bears will be without Jay Cutler, the game between the two teams still figures to be a fight to the end. With the two best defenses in the league on display scoring will be hard pressed for both teams, and important for the 49ers to avoid the two corners in the Chicago secondary who can change the game in one play.
