In-game update: It’s still cold. There are also now snow flurries at Lambeau, which should make it even more difficult for the two QBs and the passing games. It’s not like there have been too many explosive plays in the passing game as we get into the second half. We’ll see how the offenses adjust to the weather.
Game day update: COLD
Official kickoff weather: 14 degrees, 13 mph winds, 0 wind chill.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) January 23, 2022
It's the fifth-coldest playoff game ever in Green Bay.
The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers are set to meet in the divisional round on Saturday with a trip to the NFC Championship Game on the line. The 49ers are coming off a Wild Card round victory over the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday while the Packers got to enjoy a bye as the No. 1 seed in the NFC.
It’s late January in Green Bay, so we aren’t expecting south Florida weather and we would be correct. The high for Saturday in Green Bay is 21 degrees, but this game is in the evening, so the temperatures will be heading down toward a low of 1 degree at night. So we’ll have temperatures between those two, with winds around 6-10 mph and no precipitation.
What it means for fantasy football, betting
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have shown they can win in cold weather. The 49ers might not be as used to it, but they are a physical team that shouldn’t have much trouble once they get into the game.
