The current records show the San Francisco 49ers are 12-4 this season in second place in the NFC West behind the Seattle Seahawks who finished play at 13-3. Green Bay finished off the regular season at 8-7-1 and needed to win in week 17 against the Chicago Bears to clinch the NFC north division. The Packers were on the brink of defeat last week at Chicago but a mix up in the Bears secondary allowed for an Aaron Rodgers 48 yard touchdown pass with 38 seconds remaining for the victory. Rodgers had returned from injury and was not his best last week in the win. He threw two picks in the game. The weakest unit on the field on Sunday will be that of the Green Bay defense. The team ranks 24th against the pass and 25th against the run and is 24th in scoring defense by allowing nearly 27 points a game. That is similar resume we saw from previous Atlanta Falcons teams that squandered many times in the post season when facing good defensive clubs. It comes down to making stops and the Packers have not had an answer in their past three meetings with the 49ers with Colin Kaepernick under center. San Francisco is 3-0 straight up and against the spread in their past three meetings. In the regular season in 2012 it was the 49ers winning 30-22 at Green Bay. In last year’s playoffs the 49ers put up 45 points and in week one this year put up 34 points.
With our NFL pro football pick for Sunday we will play on the San Francisco 49ers -3 points against the Green Bay Packers at the best sports books.
