Monday Night Football Week 6: Packers vs 49ers

NFL Monday Night Football comes at us this week with a classic matchup of two storied franchises, the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers. This will be the 66th meeting between these two teams and the fourth time that they will face off on MNF.

This time around, the 49ers are looking to climb out of the NFC West basement, as they are 1-4 and in the last place so far this season. The 2-2-1 Packers, on the other hand, are competing for 1st place in the NFC North against the Bears, and with a Chicago loss and a Packers win, Green Bay will be in sole possession of the top spot in the division.

So can the 49ers pull off the big upset? Or will the Packers climb above .500? If you think you know a thing or two about a thing or two, Check out our NFL betting live lines and try your luck - there's nothing like ramping up the excitement of Monday Night Football with something on the line!

In order to beat the Packers, the 49ers will need a big game out of QB C.J. Beathard. He is playing in only his 8th career start, and 3rd of the season since starter Jimmy Garoppolo went down. Last week Beathard set career highs, going 34 of 54 for 349 yards.

Helping him out on offense with 23 catches for 399 yards is George Kittle, who has been the 49ers’ leading receiver. Among NFL tight ends, Kittle is first overall in yards per reception, averaging 17.3. Kittle also currently ranks fifth in receptions, third in yards, and second in yards per reception among tight ends with at least ten receptions. He had 43 receptions for 515 yards as a rookie and this year is on pace for 73 receptions, 1,276 receiving yards, and three touchdowns. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has taken notice of the second-year tight end.

"I didn't watch a whole lot of George last year, but I'll tell you what, he's a fine player," McCarthy said. "He's definitely got all our attention. He's off to a great start, and he can do it all from the tight end position. I've been very impressed with George."

Meanwhile, the Packers will rely on QB Aaron Rodgers and RB Aaron Jones for the offense. Jones averages 6 yards a carry in the last three games, which isn't much, but he gives the Packers explosive options in their running game, which will be much needed since they are facing injuries to WR Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb. In their absence, Rookie WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling steps in as the main WR target for Rodgers, who so far this season has an underwhelming 55.6 QB rating. Valdes-Scantling had his first career TD catch last week against the Lions. He will get his chance to shine on a national stage, filling in the absence left by Allison and Cobb

This will also be the first meeting for teams in Green Bay since 49ers beat Packers 23-20 in NFC wild-card game on Jan. 5, 2014, so there will be some extra incentive for revenge.

Both teams have been struggling with turnovers all season. San Francisco is an NFL second-worst with 11, while the Packers aren't far behind with 8. If both teams continue this trend on Monday night, it could be an exciting game.
