Packers 4, 49ers 4 – Another chapter in rich...

2001 NFC Wild Card at Lambeau Field: Packers 25, 49ers 15

Green Bay needed to block a field goal to be down just 7-6 at halftime and then rallied behind the arm of Favre, who threw for 226 of his 269 yards in the second half.

Packers CB Tyrone Williams intercepted a pass deflected by teammate Mike McKenzie at the Green Bay 7-yard line midway through the fourth quarter with the Packers protecting a three-point lead. RB Ahman Green then capped a 93-yard drive with a 3-yard TD run to seal the win.

2012 NFC Divisional at Candlestick Park: 49ers 45, Packers 31

An early pick-six by Packers CB Sam Shields helped Green Bay stay in this one for a while, but that would turn out to be the only mistake 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick would make.

With the score tied at 24 in the third quarter, Kaepernick ran around the right side untouched 56 yards for the go-ahead touchdown, beginning a run of 21 straight San Francisco points as the 49ers rolled up 579 yards of offense.

Kaepernick would finish with a playoff-record 181 rushing yards for a QB, and he also threw two TD passes to WR Michael Crabtree, who had nine catches for 119 yards.

2013 NFC Wild Card at Lambeau Field: 49ers 23, Packers 20

A back-and-forth game in frigid conditions (5 degrees at kickoff, minus-10 wind chill) came down to the last two possessions.

Trailing 20-17, Aaron Rodgers – who had gotten the Packers into the playoffs with a dramatic fourth-down, 48-yard TD pass the previous week in Chicago – drove Green Bay deep into San Francisco territory, but the drive stalled at the 6-yard line and the Packers settled for the tying field goal with 5:06 left.

The 49ers proceeded to kill the rest of the clock on their final drive, surviving a near-interception by Packers CB Micah Hyde and converting a crucial third down on a Kaepernick scramble to get into field-goal range. K Phil Dawson’s walk-off 33-yarder ended it.
