The Green Bay Packers played in San Francisco on Sunday — or more accurately, Santa Clara — but apparently it felt like a home game to a lot of the players.
Being on the ground, it seemed about a 60/40 split in favor of the 49ers. Of course, they didn’t really give their fans much to cheer about. The Packers did and the fans were loud. If you weren’t paying attention and heard an eruption from the crowd it was just as likely that the Packers made a play as it was that the 49ers did.

You get the idea.
The Packers travel well and this game was certainly no exception.
The “go pack go” chant late in the game sure sounded loud enough for a home game!
Love it. I recall reading a article stating Packers rank # 1 in driving up ticket prices for opposing team home games when to come to town. The same reason why they most likely won’t be playing in London any time soon. Go pack go… the closest thing to being the true America’s team.
From the TV it seemed like there were a lot of empty seats. Did the Packer crowd sound loud after all the fair-weather 49ers fans left?
That was my assumption.
