AUSTIN (KXAN) — It could have been the Cowboys.

But in a game that ended as anticlimactically as the Cowboys’ season, it was the 49ers that secured their ticket to Lambeau Field to take on QB Aaron Rodgers and undoubtedly a team to beat, the Green Bay Packers — sending Dak and company back to Dallas.

Cue Saturday’s Packers, 49ers rematch at 7:15 p.m. local time.

“Hoping for a loud crowd that has a nice enjoyable afternoon, maybe doesn’t go too hard, leaves some room for some enjoyment from like 7-10:30 p.m. on Saturday night,” Rodgers said. “It’s an exciting opportunity to be back at Lambeau for a playoff game in prime time.”

It’s not a Saturday for the boys, but hey, football is football. Here are the bars in Austin that will be crawling with red and cheese heads.
