Packers to host 49ers in NFC Wild Card contest at Lambeau Field

Posted by packers.com on January 5, 2014 – 12:40 pm

- For the second straight season, the Green Bay Packers (8-7-1, No. 4 seed) and San Francisco 49ers (12-4, No. 5 seed) will meet in the postseason, the first playoff matchup between the clubs at Lambeau Field since a Wild Card contest on Jan. 13, 2002.

- It is the first time the Packers have faced the same opponent in back-to-back postseasons since Green Bay played San Francisco in the playoffs in four consecutive seasons (1995-98). The Packers and 49ers played in an NFC Divisional contest last season at Candlestick Park.

- This will mark the seventh time that the Packers and 49ers have met in the postseason. That is tied for the most games for Green Bay against one opponent in the playoffs (N.Y. Giants, seven). The Packers hold a 4-2 advantage over San Francisco in the postseason series.

- This will be the second meeting this season and the fourth in the last 16 months between the clubs. The Packers visited San Francisco in Week 1 this season, a 34-28 win for the 49ers. It marks the fourth time (1996, 1998, 2012) in the history of the series that the clubs have squared off in both the regular season and the postseason.

- Since 2010, Green Bay has a .695 regular-season winning percentage (44-19-1), No. 1 in the NFC over that span, with San Francisco checking in at No. 2 in the conference with a .664 winning percentage (42-21-1).

- Today’s game will be a matchup of two of the most successful teams in the postseason. Green Bay is 30-18 all-time in the playoffs, a .625 winning percentage that ranks No. 2 in NFL history. San Francisco checks in at No. 5 in the league at 28-19 (.596) in the postseason. The teams have combined for 18 world championships (Green Bay 13, San Francisco 5).

- Including playoffs, the Packers have won 13 of the last 17 games against the 49ers, but San Francisco has emerged victorious in the last three.

 

BACK IN THE POSTSEASON

- With a thrilling 33-28 win over the Bears last Sunday, the Packers clinched their third straight NFC North title, the first time they have done so since 2002-04. It marked Green Bay’s 21st division crown in franchise history.

- In the 12 seasons of the NFC North (2002-13), Green Bay has captured the division title seven times (2002-04, 2007, 2011-13).

- This marks the Packers’ fifth consecutive playoff appearance (2009-13), one of only two NFL teams (New England) to do so over that span. Green Bay has advanced to the playoffs in six of the last seven seasons.

- Green Bay’s streak of five straight playoff appearances ranks second in franchise history behind only a six-season stretch from 1993-98.

- This is the Packers’ 29th postseason berth in team history and their 16th appearance in the last 21 seasons. Green Bay’s 16 appearances in the free-agency era (since 1993) are the most of any team in the NFL.

- The Packers currently rank No. 3 in NFL history with their 29 playoff appearances, trailing only the N.Y. Giants (31) and Dallas Cowboys (30).

- Today will be Green Bay’s 49th postseason game, which will move them into the No. 3 spot in league history behind only the Cowboys (58) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (54).

- Since the NFL went to a 12-team playoff format in 1990, Green Bay has been the No. 4 seed three other times (1994, 2001, 2003).

-   This will be the 11th time that the Packers have played in the Wild Card round in their 16 playoff appearances since 1990. Green Bay has a 7-4 (.636) record in Wild Card games, including a 2-1 mark under Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

 

PLAYOFF CAPTAINS

- As per team tradition, the Packers alternated game captains each week during the regular season. The team elects captains for the entire postseason.

- Players elected captains were WR Jordy Nelson and QB Aaron Rodgers (offense), S Morgan Burnett and LB A.J. Hawk (defense), and K Mason Crosby and CB Jarrett Bush (special teams).

 

WEARING THE STRIPES

- Today’s officiating crew includes referee Ed Hochuli (85), umpire Rich Hall (49), head linesman Mark Hittner (28), line judge Ron Marinucci (107), field judge Mike Weir (50), side judge James Coleman (95) and back judge Lee Dyer (27). Alternates include Larry Rose (128), Mike Spanier (90) and Terry Brown (43).

    Ed Hoculi’s officiating crew hates the Packers. I just knew it would be them.

    Hochuli doesn’t hate the Packers, but he’s from Milwaukee and can’t be seen as a homer, so he always seems to call the game against the Pack.
