When the 49ers and Packers face off on Sunday Night, it will be a battle for NFC positioning and will provide clarity regarding who No. 2 in the NFC ( afterTampa Bay). Currently, these two teams are ranked sixth and seventh in PFF’s power rankings.

The 2-0 49ers are currently 2.5-point home favorites against the 1-1 Packers, who are playing on short rest after handily beating the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football in Week 2. The short rest is already proving to be an issue – as Green Bay placed star pass-rusher Za’Darius Smith on injured reserve while elite offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins, who has been filling in for All-Pro David Bakhtiari at left tackle, is now doubtful for Sunday’s game.

Given these injuries, the key matchup to watch will be the 49ers' defensive line versus the Packers' offensive line.
