• Double Coverage: 49ers at Packers

    The defense has let the Packers down each time. Are the 49ers that much better than the Packers? I am not sold on that. The Good: The Packers made mistakes and still had a chance to win. The 49ers will move on to face Carolina in the next round of the playoffs. But, of course, Dom Capers' defense can never seem to do enough against the 49ers, who knocked the Packers out of the playoffs for the second straight season with a 23-20 victory in front of 77,525 frozen fans who braved 5-degree weather at kickoff that only got worse as the game progressed. Lacy became the 1,000-yard power back that general manager Ted Thompson hoped he would be when he picked in the second round last April, and Bakhtiari held together an offensive line that could have fallen apart when veteran Bryan Bulaga blew out his knee less than two weeks into training camp.
