The biggest game on Sunday afternoon in the NFL Wild Card playoffs is between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers, and this is also the most controversial game. The Packers enter the playoffs with the worst record of any playoff team, with only eight wins, but still get home field advantage against 12-win San Francisco. According to NBC Sports on Jan. 3, this is causing the NFL to consider making changes in the future to the seeding. Here is how fans can follow the San Francisco 49ers vs. Green Bay Packers live stream of the Wild Card football game.
- Date: Jan. 5
- Time: 4:40 p.m. EST

The Green Bay Packers made it into the postseason with a last week win over the Chicago Bears, and they deserved to make it with the way they played. While teams like the 10-win Arizona Cardinals might disagree as they sit at home, Aaron Rodgers returned from injury and led his team through the must-win game to give them the NFC North title and home field in the first round.
The San Francisco 49ers, on the other hand, have to travel across the country despite being tied with the second best record in the NFC and third best record in the NFL. That is because they play in the same division as the 13-win Seattle Seahawks, and as a result play on the road in the first playoff game. The 49ers do have a six game winning streak heading in, so the ball is still in their hands.
The San Francisco 49ers vs. Green Bay Packers live stream kicks off at 4:40 p.m. EST.
