The San Francisco 49ers will play the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs. Brock Purdy and Jordan Love will be going up against each other.
The game will take place at Levi's Stadium on Saturday night. This is the first time in NFL history that Purdy and Love will play against each other.
The 49ers (12-5) and the Packers (10-8) have been rivals for a long time. This is their 10th playoff game. The 49ers have a slim 5-4 lead over the Packers in the playoffs. The last time these two teams played, the 49ers won 13–10 at Lambeau Field two years ago.
It has been less than two seasons since either quarterback started an NFL game. Last week, Love and the No.
7 seed Packers shocked everyone by beating the Dallas Cowboys 48–32. Purdy and the 49ers, on the other hand, didn't play because they had a first-round bye.
Love has been playing with a lot of confidence, passing with command and accuracy, and following head coach Matt LaFleur's game plan to the letter ². Purdy, on the other hand, has the best passer rating in NFL history at 113.0 and an average of 9.64 yards per attempt.
Seeing how these two leaders fight against each other will be interesting. Because both sides have a lot to gain, the game should be very close. The winner of this game will play either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship game.
