The NFC Championship. The final trial for the final two teams in the conference, with only one deserving of the honor to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. This year, we are lucky enough to see two of the most historic franchises in the league go head-to-head with a trip to Miami on the line.
In one corner, we have the new kids on the block, the San Francisco 49ers, who hadn’t played in a playoff game in five years before easily washing the outmatched Vikings. In the other corner we have the Green Bay Packers, back for their fourth conference championship since 2010 and their fifth since 2007.
Of course, it isn’t so simple as experience versus youth. Green Bay has itself an impressive new coach in Matt LaFleur, who has brought the team back to where they belong after Mike McCarthy failed to make the playoffs altogether in his final two seasons. Meanwhile, San Francisco has some of the best veteran leadership you could ask for in the playoffs, coming from a guy named Richard Sherman. When I analyzed the Packers and 49ers last week, I took a look at their strengths and weaknesses, so I won’t get redundant and follow the same style as last week. This time, like I just did with Titans-Chiefs, I’ll give my two cents on three major ways that both the Packers and Niners can gain the advantage in this game and come out on top in the end.
Currently, the 49ers are the 7.5-point home favorites, according to MyBookie Sportsbook.
