Prime Time is at it again.
The 49ers have advanced to the NFC Championship Game for the first time since 2013, after crushing the Minnesota Vikings 27-10 at Levi’s Stadium in Saturday’s divisional-round matchup.
NFL Network analyst and former 49ers cornerback Deion Sanders is siding with the experts and is putting his faith in San Francisco to beat the Packers and advance to Super Bowl LIV.
Sanders played one season for the 49ers in 1994, winning NFL Defensive Player of the Year and helping to lead the 49ers to a victory in Super Bowl XXIX.
San Francisco already beat the Packers once at Levi’s Stadium this season, the world will find out Sunday whether they can do it twice.
