GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When Green Bay Packers rookie left tackle David Bakhtiari steps onto the field Sunday in San Francisco for his first NFL game, he'll feel right at home. Growing up less than 10 miles from Candlestick Park, Bakhtiari's family has been 49ers season ticket holders his entire life.

Sitting near the top of the first level on the visitors sideline, Bakhtiari will know just where to look if he wants to give his family a wave from the field.
While his family might be rooting for both teams, Bakhtiari had to let them know that his...

The Green Bay Packers learned a valuable lesson last January, don't take the read option lightly. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick put on a show at the Packers expense racking up a record 181 rushing yards for a quarterback in NFL playoff history.

Having initially been diagnosed with a minor hamstring injury during training camp, Hayward suffered a setback in his recovery during the team’s third preseason game and is now expected to be out for a noticeable period of time.
Aaron Rodgers isn't out for revenge in Green Bay's season opener. Sure, the 49ers bounced the Packers from the NFC playoffs with a 45-31 win in January, but the former MVP quarterback — who grew up a Niners fan in Northern California — says he and his teammates are simply focused on the task at hand.

MVP: QB Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay)
Rodgers was my highest ranked quarterback in my top-200 and in my fantasy projections and the top quarterback usually wins this award as long as his team makes the playoffs. In his last 45 games, including the playoffs, Rodgers has thrown for 114 touchdowns, 20 interceptions, and 12738 yards. Over 16 games, that’s 41 touchdowns, 7 interceptions...

The Packers are in serious trouble for this game. As witnessed first hand last January, the Packers will struggle to defend San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The Packers did nothing to upgrade their middle linebackers this offseason, and it’ll show against run option QBs like Kaep. Additionally, Green Bay’s best cornerback...
