(WKOW/AP) -- The Green Bay Packers opened as 7-point road underdogs against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game.

Both teams have 14-3 records right now, but the 49ers beat the Packers 37-8 in November.

The Packers haven't lost since.

This will be the eighth time in the past 25 seasons that the Packers and 49ers square off in the post-season.

The San Francisco 49ers aren't expecting a repeat when they face the Green Bay Packers less than two months after a 29-point blowout. Niners coach Kyle Shanahan says that 37-8 victory holds no relevance in the game to determine the NFC team in the Super Bowl.

The winner heads to the Super Bowl on February 2 in Miami.
