When: Saturday, January 12, 8:00 P.M. EST
Where: Candlestick Park, San Francisco, California
What to Watch For: Continuing with a rematch theme that is prevalent in the divisional round, this game pits two teams that locked horns all the way back in Week 1, with the 49ers riding a strong performance from their defense and 112 yards from running back Frank Gore to a 30-22 win.
However, there's been a major change in San Francisco. Second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick is now the starter for the 49ers, and how the youngster performs in his first playoff start could well be the turning point of what should be a close game.
The Pick: Kaepernick's mobility adds a new dimension to the San Francisco offense, but he's never seen anything like the zone blitz defense that Dom Capers and the Packers will throw at him.
Look for Capers to disguise coverages and mix up blitz packages in an effort to confuse the youngster, and a late Kaepernick interception will open the door for Aaron Rodgers to guide the Packers to victory.
