Things did not go very well for the Green Bay Packers and wideout Davante Adams last time they faced the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium. The Niners crushed the Packers 37-8 in Week 12, with the Packers amassing just 198 yards of total offense.
Adams thinks things will be different as the two teams prepare to square off in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.
Davante Adams–who is coming off a ridiculous performance against the Seattle Seahawks–expressed confidence in the team's game plan and suggested the Packers have made adjustments since that loss in Week 12 (via Rob Demovsky of ESPN):
“Obviously if we left the game with eight points and lost by 20s or whatever it was, obviously the plan wasn't good enough,” Adams said. “That's not a knock on Matt or anybody. The execution obviously wasn't good enough too, so those go hand in hand, though. The plan, so far what I've seen, I really like, and I think it's a better way to attack this defense.”
Davante Adams was held to seven catches for just 43 yards during that loss to the Niners, but he is in the midst of a tremendous four-game stretch. The two-time Pro Bowler has 35 catches for 472 yards over the course of the last four weeks, including eight catches for 160 yards against the Seahawks.
The Niners harassed Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins during their NFC divisional round victory, but they did so in part because they shut down Dalvin Cook in the running game.
If the Packers can establish Aaron Jones as a dual threat, it might free things up for Davante Adams and Co. as they look to have some success with the downfield passing attack.
