The Detroit Lions took care of business at home in the Divisional Round against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-23. The Bucs and Baker Mayfield played well, but the Lions’ offense was unstoppable in the fourth quarter and their defense held on in the end.
On Saturday, the 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers 24-21 in a closely fought game. They lost Deebo Samuel to a shoulder injury, but linebacker Dre Greenlaw played out of his mind, helping the team hold off the upstart Packers.
These two teams haven’t played since 2021, when the 49ers won a shootout 41-33, as Jimmy Garoppolo and Jared Goff put up over 650 yards passing. It was head coach Dan Campbell’s first game as head coach with the Lions.
