Tune in at 8:00 PM ET as the Packers take on the 49ers. Gino Bottero will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Welcome everyone! I'll be live blogging tonight's Divisional Round playoff game between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers.
Not much in the way of injury notes for this game. The big news is that Justin Smith is ACTIVE for the 49ers. Davon House is INACTIVE, while Donald Driver is ACTIVE.
These teams met in Week 1 at Lambeau, with the 49ers claiming a 30-22 win. Alex Smith threw for 211 yards and two touchdowns in that game. Prior to the win, San Francisco had lost eight in a row against Green Bay.
The Packers are 4-1 all-time against the 49ers in the playoffs.
Last week's win over Minnesota was the first playoff win at Lambeau for Aaron Rodgers. He is 3-1 in road playoff starts.
The 49er franchise has 19 home playoff wins. With a win tonight they would equal the Steelers for most all-time.
Under defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, the 49ers have allowed an average of just 13.9 points per home game.
Aaron Rodgers has thrown for 11 touchdowns without an interception over his last four games.
The Packers converted on a league-worst 64 percent of their field goal attempts this season. The 49ers were second-worst, converting only 69 percent of the time.
ALERT: In the day's other game, Baltimore gets the ball back with 1:09 to play and no timeouts remaining, trailing Denver 35-28.
ALERT: Joe Flacco passed to Jacoby Jones for a 70-yard touchdown with 31 seconds remaining
Hopefully it won't be too much longer, but they certainly aren't in much of a hurry to get this game started.
Kickoff is about 10 minutes away in San Francisco.
The field is lousy in San Francisco, and everyone that's stepped on it has had something negative to say. Hopefully it doesn't impact the game the way FedEx Field in Washington impacted that game.
Only by a few minutes or so. The game's less than 10 minutes away, more or less.
Both kickers have struggled this year, and the field conditions certainly won't help them. It will be interesting to see what types of decisions each coach will make regarding long field goals.
