Fooch's Note: Check out our game day stream for more on 49ers-Packers!
We're back for another season of San Francisco 49ers football! The 49ers came so close to the mountain-top this past season, a mere five yards from glory. It eats us up inside, but now the 49ers are back with a chance to make that final push. The 49ers got to the NFC Championship Game in 2011 and the Super Bowl in 2012. The time has come to make that final push for Lombardi No. 6.
The 49ers face a familiar foe as they host the Green Bay Packers. The two teams squared off last year in the divisional round of the playoffs, and previously in the 2012 season opener up at Lambeau Field. It's easy to forget the game a year ago considering the playoff matchup acted a bit like Colin Kaepernick's coming out party.
Today's game is the FOX game of the week, so most people in the US will be able to watch it. If not, we have some alternatives to consider. And if you're not sure if the game will be on where you live, we've got some information on that as well.
