After a week-long wait, the Carolina Panthers finally know who they will face in their NFC Divisional contest. The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Green Bay Packers 23-20 on Sunday, earning the right to travel to Bank of America Stadium to play the Panthers next Sunday at 1:05 pm.
The 49ers beat the Packers on the road with a 33 yard field goal from Phil Dawson as time expired.
The Panthers (12-4) and 49ers (12-4) met in San Francisco in Week 10, with the Panthers escaping with a 10-9 win in a defensive slugfest. Both teams have lost just one game each since that contest.
