Aaron Rodgers ready for San Francisco 49ers rematch

Aaron Rodgers is looking back at the Green Bay Packers' loss to the San Francisco 49ers earlier in the season ahead of their playoff game this weekend.

Aaron Rodgers has said that the Green Bay Packers have been studying the San Francisco 49ers ahead of their playoff game this weekend.

The Packers sealed their place in the divisional round with a win over the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday, to set up a tie against a team that beat them during the first week of the regular season.

The Packers quarterback told the team's website: "They're a different team. Teams find their identity throughout the season and we'll look at more of their past schemes.

"We're going to have to find ways to block up their Pro Bowlers inside and try to make some plays on the perimeter as well.

"It will be interesting to go back and look at that and see who was playing at that point. Cedric [Benson] was our main back, and now we're a few down the line here to get to DuJuan [Harris]."

The Packers play the 49ers, who had a bye from the wildcard round, on Saturday at Candlestick Park.
