The Packers have struggled in the past against 49ers TE Vernon Davis, who ranks fifth among all tight ends in receiving yards with 548 after finishing fifth last year with 965. Last November at Lambeau Field, Davis caught six passes for 108 yards and one touchdown. He beat A.J. Hawk on a 32-yard catch, Jarrett Bush on a 29-yard catch and both Clay Matthews and Atari Bigby on a 24-yard catch. With the 49ers minus Frank Gore and Brian Westbrook hurting, Davis figures to be the first option for QB Troy Smith. Green Bay figures to keep the pressure on Smith and 49ers rookie RT Anthony Davis should have his hands full with Matthews, who has 11.5 sacks, an interception and has scored after a fumble recovery.
