49ers Preparing To Face Packers In 2nd Round

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for next week's divisional-round playoff game as if they already know their opponent.

With a first-round bye and the weekend off, a trio of San Francisco scout teamers wore the jerseys numbers of key Green Bay Packers targets during Friday's practice. They simulated top Green Bay wide receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson along with tight end Jermichael Finley as third-string 49ers quarterback Scott Tolzien tossed passes.

The Packers host Minnesota on Saturday. If Green Bay beats the Vikings, the Packers will play at San Francisco the following weekend. Otherwise, the 49ers will host the winner of Sunday's game between fourth-seeded Washington and No. 5 Seattle.

Chad Hall wore No. 18 (Cobb), Ricardo Lockette was dressed in No. 87 (Nelson) and Garrett Celek had No. 88 (Finley).
