The only two notable names that could miss this Sunday’s game between the 49ers and Panthers are Steve Smith and Carlos Rogers. While it’s unlikely that Smith will sit, it would not be a surprise to see Rogers not dressed. Regardless of what happens, both teams will be fine, and shouldn’t have to make any major adjustments.
When Panthers Coach Ron Rivera said that he felt the team under the most pressure this week will be San Francisco he was dead wrong. Not only is his team the one that HAS to win this game, if he really believes that the Panthers are playing with house money he is setting his team up for failure.
The Carolina Panthers have not been to the playoffs since 2008. The upcoming game against the San Francisco 49ers will mark just the fifth time in franchise history that the Panthers have been to the playoffs, and that means the team is severely lacking in playoff experience.
The Green Bay Packers have had trouble stopping the 49ers in their last two meetings. Now they have to try and beat them in the playoffs while facing injury issues on defense.
The fact that both teams could be without a key defensive player this Sunday when the 49ers and Packers play is not good. While Green Bay already knows their fate, San Francisco is hoping and waiting that they will not be without Carlos Rogers.
The Carolina Panthers have a first-round bye in the upcoming playoffs and they have an extra week to prepare for whatever team may end up facing them in Bank of America Stadium. Cam Newton recently said that they don’t care who their opponent is, but the key to winning is forgetting about egos and focusing on their opponent.
The Green Bay Packers pulled off a huge win to make the playoffs, but now they have to face off with the San Francisco 49ers. They will have to work to prevent a repeat of what happened when these two met last season.
