The last time the Green Bay Packers lost to the San Francisco 49ers in regular season game was in 1990.  That was also the last time the Packers lost to the 49ers at home.  I don’t think those streaks will be put to an end this Sunday. 

The 49ers are coming into the game with a 1-4 road record, and they will be without star RB Frank Gore.  On top of that, the 49ers have the second worst scoring offense in the NFL this season; meanwhile, the Packers have the best scoring defense and Aaron Rodgers has been lighting it up lately.  He went from an 80.1 passer rating in the month of October to a 130.2 passer rating in the month of November.

Check out some more interesting facts about the game:

The Packers have a 33-26-1 all-time record vs. the 49ers, and they have won the last seven games in the series.  In all seven of those victories the Packers have scored the game’s first touchdown.

In their last three games vs. the 49ers, the Packers have dominated the second quarter, outscoring the 49ers 37 to 6.  In all three of those games a Packers receiver has caught a 60+ yard touchdown reception. Those aforementioned players would be Greg Jennings (64-yard) last year, Donald Driver (68-yard) in 2006, and Javon Walker (66-yard) in 2003.

The 49ers are the only NFC West team the Packers will face this regular season.  Since 2002 the Packers are 15-5 vs. the NFC West.

The last shutout in the series occurred in 1967, when the Packers beat the 49ers 13 to 0.
