GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Lambeau mystique lives on. Brett Favre threw two touchdown passes as the Green Bay Packers stayed perfect at home in the playoffs with a 25-15 victory over San Francisco on Sunday. The Packers (13-5), who advanced to face the St. Louis Rams next week, improved to 13-0 at home in playoff games. Favre improved to 31-0 in starts at Lambeau Field with the temperature 34 degrees or colder. It was 28 degrees at kickoff Sunday, and Favre was 22-of-29 for 269 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's almost impossible for Ray Rhodes or George Seifert to go a full week in the NFL season without facing coaches who got their start in San Francisco. But Rhodes, whose Green Bay Packers will play host to Seifert's Carolina Panthers today, and Seifert hang especially close together on the branches of the 49ers' coaching tree.
