The 49ers might find themselves California dreamin’ on what could be a particularly brutal winter’s day this Saturday.
San Francisco is traveling to Green Bay to try to pull off their second consecutive upset victory. The sixth-seeded 49ers beat the Cowboys in the wild-card round of the 2022 NFL playoffs and now will hope to shock the world again by beating the top-seeded Packers.
To do so, they will have to defeat the frigid temperatures.
Green Bay is set to have close to single-digit weather in store for the Packers and 49ers, while wind and possibly snow will also be in the forecast. According to wunderground.com, the weather forecast at kickoff time on Saturday night calls for a temperature of 10 degrees with winds at 7 mph, meaning it will really feel like it’s a low of -1.
The Packers got the best of the 49ers in Week 3, when Green Bay won 30-28 on “Sunday Night Football.” However, that game was played in San Francisco.
Aaron Rodgers and the No. 1 seed Green Bay Packers have dominated the league with a 13-4 regular season record which helped them seize their third straight NFC North title and earn a first-round bye in the playoffs. He finished the regular season with 4,115 pass yards, 37 pass touchdowns, and just 4 interceptions.
