Green Bay Packers
San Francisco 49ers
It all started so well for the Green Bay Packers, taking an early lead on an interception returned for a touchdown. Then, over the final 58 minutes of the game, the San Francisco 49ers dominated offensively and sent Green Bay into the offseason with its second divisional-round defeat in two years.
Handing out grades following the Packers' 45-31 loss to the 49ers:
Passing offense: B
Aaron Rodgers didn't have the type of game that best displayed his MVP-level skill, but the Packers moved the ball fairly well through the air. Rodgers completed 26 of 39 attempts for 257 yards with two touchdown passes and one interception, finishing with a solid passer rating of 91.5.
The two big passing plays were connections with James Jones and Greg Jennings, each of whom also caught a touchdown from Rodgers. Jennings, in what could have been his final game with the Packers, led the team with six receptions for 54 yards. Jones had a team-high 87 yards on four catches. Rodgers also complet...

Sorry about your homecoming Aaron Rodgers. I’m sure one of these days you’ll be able to win in San Francisco. All the talk heading into this game was about Aaron Rodgers homecoming, how the 49ers were going to be upset they didn’t draft him back in 2005. Yes, that is right, Rodgers is still crying 7 years later. Well Aaron that was before Harbaugh’s time and he drafted Colin...

I missed on the picks yesterday. Like I said, this week looks incredibly tough to predict. I was hoping to see a Peyton Manning vs. Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl. I think that’s the dream matchup all of us wanted to see this year. After last night, that’s out of the picture. I should have kept the Broncos (-2.5)/Patriots (-2.5) teaser alive, but the 70-yard bomb with 36 seconds left...
In week one, Green Bay fell short to San Francisco, 30-22.
