49ers-Packers matchups: Anthony Davis vs. Clay Matthews on passing downs

On running downs like first-and-ten, the Packers will line up Clay Matthews on the right side of their defense against Joe Staley.

But on passing downs like third-and-seven or any time Green Bay is in their Nickel defense, it would be logical for them to move Matthews to the left side of their defense and match him up against Anthony Davis.

Matthews has a major quickness advantage over Davis. The 49ers probably would have to help Davis with a chipping running back or tight end.

Advantage: Packers
