San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers (+2.5, 45.5)

Niners’ poor pass defense vs. Packers’ resurgence under Rodgers

The 49ers appear to be the hottest team heading into the postseason with six straight wins. However, last year’s NFC champs have a major chink in the armor heading into the Wild Card Weekend. San Francisco, which ranked ninth versus the pass (222.8 yards per game), has been watching opponents go over the top the past two games, allowing a total of 740 passing yards against the Falcons and Cardinals. On top of that, standout CB Carlos Rogers is hobbled by hamstring injury, leaving Eric Wright to shoulder the load in the secondary.

The return of Aaron Rodgers instantly boosts Green Bay back into the Super Bowl conversation. The Packers found balance behind RB Eddie Lacy when Rodgers was sidelined with a broken collarbone and now have a potent two-pronged attack with No. 12 back under center. Rodgers threw for 318 yards in the win-and-in showdown with the Bears and reconnected with deep threat Randall Cobb for the go-ahead score. Cobb’s return also gives the Cheese Heads depth in the passing and special teams gameplan.

ABOUT THE 49ERS (12-4): Kaepernick has shown an ability to beat Green Bay with both his legs and arm, rushing for a record 181 yards with a combined four TDs in last year's playoff victory and throwing for 412 yards and three scoring passes in the Week 1 victory. Wideout Michael Crabtree had nine catches for 119 yards and two TDs in last season's playoff meeting and has 19 receptions in five games since returning from Achilles' tendon surgery. Anquan Boldin torched the Packers for 13 catches and 208 yards in Week 1 while tight end Vernon Davis has surpassed 100 yards in four of his five postseason games. The running game is headed by Frank Gore, who is coming off his seventh 1,000-yard season, while San Francisco's defense has not allowed a 100-yard rusher all season and limited 11 of its last 13 opponents to 20 points or fewer.

ABOUT THE PACKERS (8-7-1): Green Bay's offense went into a tailspin after Rodgers suffered a fractured collarbone that caused him to miss seven games, failing to score more than 13 points in three of its first four games without the former MVP. Rodgers threw for 318 yards and a pair of TDs in his first game back, including the game-winning 48-yard strike to Randall Cobb, who was back in the lineup for the first time since suffering a knee injury in Week 6. Cobb provides a dangerous weapon opposite Jordy Nelson (10 receptions for 161 yards last week) and opens up the running game for bruising rookie Eddie Lacy, who rushed for 1,178 yards and 11 TDs, and James Starks. The big concern is a defense that surrenders 26.8 points, has allowed seven 100-yard rushers in the last nine and is without pass-rushing linebacker Clay Matthews.
