How The 49ers Got Here
When healthy, nobody played as good of football as the 49ers. Brock Purdy emerged as a viable MVP candidate for a good chunk of the season and Christian McCaffrey finished as a favorite to win Offensive Player of the Year. However, the real anchor of the offense is Trent Williams, who proved to be an invaluable impact player. The triple receiving threat of Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, and Brandon Aiyuk stretched opposing defenses thin. Seemingly, the 49ers were the lone offense not affected in any way by a down year for scoring.
But once again, San Francisco fielded an elite defense. The corps of that defense relies on athleticism and some of the best tackling in the league. If the offense scored 21 points, they were untouchable, going a perfect 12-0. The only blemish on this year’s resume was a three-game skid where Williams, Samuel, and McCaffrey were hurt. After last year’s NFC Championship disappointment, the Niners are playing with a chip on their shoulder.
How The Packers Got Here
A slow start to the Jordan Love era shook the confidence of the NFL world. The Packers started 2-5 before catching fire, winning seven of their last eight games. Once in the playoffs, Aaron Jones continued his momentum against the Cowboys, finding the end zone three times. Love was also sensational, finishing the 48-32 blowout with a perfect passer rating. The young corps of receivers showed up throughout the back half of the season and Green Bay is a dangerous team in its current form.
As good as the offense has been, the Packers defense showed up when necessary. While the box score finishes are underwhelming – and the unit certainly regressed since the start of the year – the stop unit came up big multiple times in the Wild Card round. They picked Dak Prescott twice, including a pick-six by Darnell Savage. What was dubbed a rebuilding year has turned into another postseason by Green Bay.
