It’s the rematch many were hoping for after the week one meeting. The Green Bay Packers get another shot at the San Francisco 49ers this Saturday in the Divisional playoff round. Earlier this week, I talked about the changes between these two teams since that week one game. Now let’s see how some of those changes along with some of the consistencies will factor in the game’s outcome as we discuss this week’s keys to the game.
Rodgers has been discussed at great length this week. Here at allbgp.com, on ESPN, on Twitter, and on every sports radio/talk show imaginable. And all for good reason. Rodgers has a lot of expectations placed on him this week. His performance will single-handedly determine the fate of the 2012 Green Bay Packers.
Green Bay will have their core wide receivers all healthy this week and it’s no secret, they will try to out-man the 49ers secondary and move the chains. If there’s a guy open for a split second, Rodgers will find him. If he is accurate and the receivers don’t come down with a case of the dropsies, this could be the key to the fast start that the Packers absolutely need in this game.
