Game: San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay PackersKickoff: Sunday, January 5th, 2014, 4:40 P.M. ESTLine: 49ers, -3.0 Why the 49ers Will Win: Frankly, I don't believe that there is a team in the NFL that is better built for a Super Bowl run than the San Francisco 49ers. They are incredibly physical up front, boast a defense riddled with Pro Bowl talent, and their offense has found continuity within a league best six-game winning streak. The 49ers should have no problem scoring points in this game, and are plenty capable of producing the necessary stops on defense against a tough Packers' offense to come out victorious. Why the Packers Will Win: Balance. The Packers haven't displayed offensive balance to this level since Ahman Green and a younger Aaron Rodgers led them to Super Bowl glory over Pittsburgh. Rookie running back Eddie Lacy is a tough runner and has the ability to chip away at the 49ers' stout run defense, allowing Rodgers time and space to dissect a secondary t...

Sam Shields (Photo credit: Stephen Dunn/ Getty Images) While much of the talk will surround the offenses in this Sunday’s NFC Wild Card game between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers, the big key for both teams will be how well does their defense play.  In its last two games against the 49ers, the Packers have gotten torched by Colin Kaepernick passing the football...
