The game within the game in Saturday's showdown between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers might be pre-snap situations when the 49ers have the ball. Packers DB Sam Shields said the Green Bay defense must be prepared to adjust its coverage when the 49ers use shifts and motions before the snap.
Charles Woodson is 36 years old, has spent 15 years in the NFL and missed the Green Bay Packers' last nine games with a broken collarbone. He's also an eight-time Pro Bowler, the 2009 Defensive Player of the Year and quite possibly the key to the Packers beating the Minnesota Vikings.
The Packers have already locked up a playoff berth, but that doesn't mean they won't be motivated against the Vikings on Sunday. They can improve their seed, and then there's this: not being on the wrong end of an Adrian Peterson record.
