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.
