After a week off, the San Francisco 49ers are kicking off their postseason with a highly-anticipated matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night. It will be the first time Colin Kaepernick has faced off against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, with Alex Smith having started the 49ers' Week 1 win over Green Bay to open the season.
Where: Candlestick Park, San Francisco, Calif.
When: Saturday, Jan. 12, 5 p.m. PST, 8 p.m. EST
Broadcast Crew: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Pam Oliver and Erin Andrews
The biggest question for San Francisco will be the health and availability of defensive tackle Justin Smith (tricep) who missed the 49ers' final two games of the regular season.
For the Packers, Jordy Nelson (knee) and Randall Cobb (illness) were limited in practice this week. Jerel Worthy (knee) and Jarrett Boykin (knee) were both held out of practice. Clay Matthews (knee) practiced in full.
