The Green Bay Packers are going to the Super Bowl. Unlike last week when I felt less confident on game day than earlier in the week, today I woke up feeling that is the day Aaron Rodgers finally gets back to the Super Bowl.
The Packers have absolutely no pressure on them whatsoever, just getting here is already just gravy on an unexpected 13-3 season. On the other hand, the 49ers were the best team in the league pretty much from the start. They won big games in New Orleans and Seattle and dispatched the Vikings in the divisional round last week. But today is a different beast.
I think Rodgers’ experience on offense and guys like the Smith’s and Tramon Williams on defense will have the Packers ready to play today. Packers 27, 49ers 23.
