What to Look for in Sunday's Packers-49ers Showdown

NFL rematches are never boring, especially when it is between two juggernauts like the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers. Realistic expectations for both teams is a Super Bowl championship, which is why there is bad blood between them—in the same conference, they’re standing directly in each other’s way.

Not to mention, two years removed from winning a Lombardi Trophy of their own, the Packers falling 0-2 to a resurgent 49ers team has left a bad taste in their mouth. Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews are eager to prove they're still the criteria for success in the league, not the 49ers.  

This is very much a battle for league supremacy, setting the tone for the 2013 season. 

For a full-scale guide of what to expect in this weekend's grudge match, check out the following preview of America's Game of the Week.
