Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers in the 2022 NFL playoffs.
Aaron Rodgers has accomplished plenty with the Green Bay Packers during his NFL career, including winning a championship, a Super Bowl MVP Award and three regular-season MVP trophies. One accolade the future Hall-of-Famer has not achieved is defeating the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL playoffs. Rodgers will make his fourth attempt on Saturday when the NFC North-champion Packers (13-4) host the 49ers (11-7) in the divisional round of the 2022 NFL playoffs. The 38-year-old Rodgers fell to 0-3 against San Francisco in the postseason when Green Bay suffered a 27-20 road loss in the 2019 NFC Championship Game.
Kickoff from Lambeau Field is set for 8:15 p.m. ET. Green Bay is a six-point favorite in the latest 49ers vs. Packers odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total points scored is 47.5.

Why the Packers can cover
San Francisco was third in total defense (310 yards) during the regular season and limited Dallas to 307 yards of offense in last Sunday’s wild-card victory, but Rodgers could be facing a depleted unit on Saturday. Nick Bosa, who was fourth in the NFL with a career-high 15.5 sacks, suffered a concussion against the Cowboys in the first half, while fellow defensive end Jordan Willis went down with an ankle injury. Linebacker Fred Warner also sprained his ankle. The early feeling is that the 25-year-old Warner, who led the 49ers with 137 tackles, is the most likely of the three to be in the lineup against Green Bay.
Rodgers could have a field day against the 49ers If Bosa and Willis are unavailable. Green Bay’s aerial attack was eighth in the NFL (253.8 yards) during the regular season and Rodgers threw a league-low four interceptions for the second time in three years.
Why the 49ers can cover
San Francisco used its ground attack to defeat Green Bay in their last playoff meeting, gaining 285 yards on the ground as Raheem Mostert accounted for 220 and four touchdowns. The 49ers have the ability to do it again behind Elijah Mitchell, who ran for 96 yards and a TD in their 23-17 triumph over Dallas last Sunday in the Wild Card round. The 23-year-old rookie appeared in only 11 games during the regular season, but finished eighth in the NFL with 963 rushing yards.
The 49ers were seventh in the league in rushing (127.4 yards) and also ranked seventh in total offense with an average of 375.7 yards. They were even better on the other side of the ball, finishing third in total defense (310 yards) while ranking sixth against the pass (206.5) and seventh versus the run (103.5).
