Prediction: Packers defeat 49ers

The Packers will beat the 49ers Sunday, 34-23.

The Packers are going to double-team both Justin and Aldon Smith. The left guard and center – T.J. Lang and Jeff Saturday – will take Justin Smith, and the left tackle and running back – Marshall Newhouse and Cedric Benson – will take Aldon Smith.

Aaron Rodgers will have enough time to find open receivers and exploit the 49ers secondary, which is ordinary without the two Smiths’ pressure.

The Packers will jump out to an early lead and Alex Smith will have to pass the ball, but he won’t be able to keep up with Rodgers. Smith will have a good game by his standards, but the offense will only score two touchdowns and three field goals – not enough against Green Bay.

Randy Moss will catch two passes. Michael Crabtree will catch seven to lead the 49ers. Vernon Davis will be double-covered most of the game and held in check.

That’s how I see it happening. What’s your prediction?
