Aaron Rodgers and the Packers (1-1) started their 2021 campaign with an embarrassing loss to the Saints. Monday, they bounced back. Rodgers picked the Lions apart for four touchdown passes during the Pack’s 35-17 win over Detroit in Monday Night Football. Running back Aaron Jones also had himself a night, catching three of Rodgers touchdown passes while also running for another. Green Bay will look to carry that momentum into Santa Clara. 

The 49ers (2-0) are coming off a 17-11 win over the Eagles that tested their resiliency. The Niners needed to pull out all the stops to notch their second win of the season. After falling into a 3-0 hole early against the Eagles, San Francisco blocked a field goal, halted a drive at the one-yard-line and put together two huge scoring drives. 

The inactives are as follows:

Packers: DE Ladarius Hamilton, OG Elgton Jenkins, CB Kevin King, S Vernon Scott

49ers: OG Aaron Banks, CB Dre Kirkpatrick, RB Elijah Mitchell, CB Ambry Thomas

Jimmy Garoppolo engineered a 12-play, 97-yard touchdown drive to take a 7-3 lead by the end of the first half. Then took a 14-3 lead in the third quarter after a 16-play, 92-yard touchdown drive that ate up eight minutes and fifty-nine seconds of game clock between the third and fourth quarters. 

The 49ers are 3.5-point favorites against the Packers. The over/under is 49.5.

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS, and RedZone is available with the Sports Extra add on). You can get your local CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $65 per month.
