49ers-Packers NFC Championship Game sets attendance record for Levi’s Stadium

Jan 20, 2020 at 12:38 PM--

It was the biggest San Francisco 49ers game in the history of Levi's Stadium, and the fans showed up. Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers set a new record for attendance, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

Sunday's attendance added up to 72,211 excited fans who filled Levi's Stadium to watch the 49ers knock off the Packers 37-20 and advance to Super Bowl LIV. The attendance total broke a record that stood for eight ... days. Yes, it broke a record set the previous weekend when the 49ers hosted the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

"I've played the Packers a number of times," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game, "and I don't care where you play the Packers, there's always a ton of Green Bay fans in the stadium. And out of all the times I've ever played the Packers in any stadium in my life, I did not see green out there, and that's pretty hard to do.

"So, I love it here. I love Levi's and hoping our fans follow us to Miami."

While the 72,211 fans in attendance set a record for the largest crowd to watch a 49ers game, it ranks fifth all-time in Levi's Stadium history.

USA Today predicts 49ers to win NFC West with this record

Nate Davis of USA TODAY released his annual NFL predictions this week, and San Francisco 49ers fans might wonder how the national reporter feels the league's toughest division, the NFC West, will pan out. San Francisco is coming off a disappointing injury-plagued six-win campaign. It was the third losing season in head coach Kyle Shanahan's four years with the team, and the 49ers hope 2020, not their 2019 campaign that ended with a Super Bowl appearance, is the aberration. Most expect the 49ers to be much improved in 2021, assuming the team can stay relatively healthy. San Francisco

49ers safety Tony Jefferson excited for 'ample opportunities' facing NFC West opponents

New San Francisco 49ers safety Tony Jefferson joined NFL Total Access on Tuesday and discussed his return to the football field. He hasn't played since Week 5 of the 2019 season when he suffered a torn ACL, and the Baltimore Ravens released him on February 14, 2020. Jefferson spent his first four NFL seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. He officially returned to the NFC West on June 7 when San Francisco signed him to a one-year deal. Jefferson is now preparing to face several talented quarterbacks in Russell Wilson, Matthew Stafford, and Kyler Murray. The veteran safety sounds more excited than concerned, though. "As a secondary player, you look at the NFC West, you see the quarterbacks, and the new addition of Matthew Stafford," Jefferson said. "I love

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.
