Following a first-round bye, the Green Bay Packers defended Lambeau Field, holding off Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks to move on to the NFC Championship against the San Francisco 49ers. After the Packers' win against Seattle, their odds to win the Super Bowl moved to +650, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Disrespected by many heading into the postseason, the Packers find themselves just one win away from making it back the the Super Bowl, which would prove the naysayers wrong.

However, they still face a tough road ahead, having to travel and play the top-seeded 49ers, the only one-seed remaining the the NFL Playoffs. San Francisco used the bye week to their advantage, getting multiple defensive playmakers healthy enough to play, and their presence was felt in the 27-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

This NFC Championship will be a rematch from Week 12, where the 49ers dominated the Packers, 37-8. Aaron Rodgers was held to just 104 yards on 20 completions in the game, while Jimmy Garoppolo passed for 253 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Should the Packers upset the top-seeded 49ers, they would then have to take on the Kansas City Chiefs or Tennessee Titans, both of whom are playing very good football at the perfect time of year.

The full breakdown of odds to win the Super Bowl includes the 49ers (+130), Chiefs (+140), Packers (+650) and Titans (+750).
