How to watch 49ers vs. Packers: TV channel, live stream, weather, start time for tonight’s NFL Divisional round playoff game


The 2022 NFL playoffs continue with an action-packed Divisional Round today. It all starts with two matchups Saturday, beginning with the Cincinnati Bengals vs. the Tennessee Titans at 4:30 p.m. ET. Then, the San Francisco 49ers are slated to battle it out against the Green Bay Packers at 8:15 p.m. ET.

The 49ers are coming off a dramatic 23-17 upset against the Dallas Cowboys. Jimmy Garoppolo went 16-of-25 for 172 yards and threw a late interception that nearly got Dallas back in the game. The quarterback is fighting through injuries to his thumb and shoulder, but is confident he’ll play Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Packers had an extra week to rest after securing the No. 1 seed in the NFC and guaranteeing homefield advantage. That time could be the difference maker for banged up players like Aaron Rodgers, who has been playing through a fractured toe since November.

The Packers narrowly defeated the 49ers 30-28 back in Week 3, thanks to a 51-yard field goal by Mason Crosby. However, the rivalry is rooted much deeper than just this season. These teams have squared up in the playoffs eight times, with each team splitting wins at four apiece. “I’ve been around and played a lot of football. I understand the history of this rivalry, the history of us against them,” Rodgers told reporters. “But these are two different teams.”

NFL quarterback rankings 2023: Chris Simms’ top 40 QB countdown ahead of upcoming NFL season


While the NFL is a league that is ever-changing, some things are set to stay the same in 2023 — like the revealing of Chris Simms’ top 40 QB countdown.

Last year’s list saw Josh Allen take his place atop the quarterback throne, with Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and Los Angeles’ Justin Herbert not far behind at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. It was, however, Mahomes who would ultimately reign over all NFL quarterbacks at the end of the season, as the 27-year-old collected both the NFL MVP honors and his second Lombardi Trophy.

This NFL offseason, however, has brought some intriguing adjustments that are likely to shake up Simms’ rankings.

While some signal-callers such as Jalen Hurts and Lamar Jackson found their prolonged home with massive contract signings, others will be venturing to a new franchise in search of a fresh start. Aaron Rodgers‘ trade to the New York Jets is unquestionably the most staggering shift, but other quarterbacks on the move such as Derek Carr and Jimmy Garoppolo cannot be forgotten.

And with three of the first four picks in the 2023 NFL Draft being spent on a quarterback, emerging talent will likely turn the tides for some franchises this upcoming season.
