49ers Stars George Kittle and Brandon Aiyuk Talk About Playing at Lambeau Field: ‘I Haven’t Walked Into a Stadium Yet Where I’ve Been Struck’

By January 20, 2022No Comments

The San Francisco 49ers are set to face up against the Green Bay Packers. The second-round wild-card game will take place in Lambeau Field on Sunday. A couple of 49ers are very excited to play in Green Bay. The tight end George Kittle and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk cannot wait to step on Lambeau Field.

Every game in the home ground of the Packers is special, but this particular wild-card round has some pretty high stakes. The oldest stadium in NFL history will be the host of this storied rivalry. The mystique surrounding the stadium is especially intriguing to George Kittle and Brandon Aiyuk.

George Kittle on playing at the Lambeau Field

The last time the 49ers visited Green Bay was in 2018. The tight end George Kittle was in his second season with San Francisco. The 2018 game did not go too well for the 49ers, but Kittle had a good showing. He caught four of his six passes on target for 30 yards. Green Bay won the game with a score of 33-30. Mason Crosby scored a field goal and won it for the Packers. 

“Lambeau is going to be awesome, Historic stadium,” said George Kittle. “Haven’t played there since 2018. Very excited to go there. It’s really kind of a dream come true. Looking forward to that experience, playing a night playoff game at Lambeau, zero degrees. What more could you ask for?”

The tight end will be looking for redemption for the 2018 loss. Playing in cold weather is not easy, but George Kittle was a part of the University of Iowa. He knows a thing or two about playing in the cold. 

Brandon Aiyuk hasn’t really played in cold weather

The wide receiver attended college in Arizona. He might lack some experience when it comes to playing in the cold. But Brandon Aiyuk believes that weather will not be a problem for him. 

“It’s going to be awesome,” He adds. “We’re going to a historic stadium, playing them on Saturday night, a playoff game at Lambeau vs. the Packers, Aaron Rodgers, all of them. We already know what type of game that is going to be, what the atmosphere is going to be.” Aiyuk has not been to Lambeau Field yet. But George Kittle knows what it’s like. The 49ers will come prepared for the second round of the playoffs.
