The Packers will hope to emulate the Seahawks' 42--13 pasting of San Francisco on Dec. 23, when Seattle got 111 rushing yards from Marshawn Lynch. Niners DE Justin Smith missed that game with a torn left triceps; if he can't go or if he's (more likely) compromised, Green Bay's hogs won't need to double-team him much, freeing up help on OLB Aldon Smith, the NFC's sack leader. Either way, RB DuJuan Harris will rush directly at Aldon, who is still learning to use his leverage to take on and shed blockers.
