49ers vs. Packers: Open thread

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

This is the most important playoff game of the weekend for Carolina

The Carolina Panthers will face the winner of this afternoon's game between the 49ers and Packers.

It's a good thing the Panthers have home field advantage, because the idea of playing in freezing temperatures isn't so fun. Meteorologists are hoping it will rise to 5-degrees by kickoff, with wind chills reportedly soaring to -30 in Wisconsin. The grass is as brown as dirt, players will be forced to try and avoid frostbite while playing in the most important game of the season.

Pregame discussion: Which team would you prefer to see in the NFL divisional round? I'm going with Green Bay. I know the Panthers beat San Francisco before, but it was a one-point win and the 49ers didn't have Vernon Davis or Michael Crabtree. The Packers defense is suspect enough that I think Carolina could score some much-needed points, because it's going to take more than 10 against the 49ers now.
