49ers vs. Packers: The first Stick playoff matchup since T.O. and The Catch II

We take a look back at some video of the last time the 49ers and Packers met at Candlestick Park in the NFL playoffs.

The 49ers and Packers meet up at Candlestick Park this Saturday with a trip to the NFC Championship Game on the line. The 49ers have opened as three point favorites in a game that should end up as a fairly fun matchup to watch. Obviously a bit more fun if the 49ers win, but fun nonetheless.

This game marks the first playoff game between these two teams at Candlestick Park since Terrell Owens hauled in a game-winning touchdown from Steve Young. The play, now known as The Catch II, capped a wild fourth quarter that saw the 49ers escape by the skin of their teeth.

The 49ers are slim favorites in a game that really could go either way. I don't know if we'll have another wild finish like The Catch II, or even like last year's playoff win over the Saints, but I do expect a tough matchup for both teams. We'll see if it's another instant classic.
