As the San Francisco 49ers prepare to host the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round, Niner fans are wondering if Brock Purdy has another deep playoff run in him. A year ago, the seventh-round rookie made history when he helped lead the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game, joining just two other rookie quarterbacks who made it to their team's respective conference title games.

Joe Flacco led the Ravens to the AFC Championship Game as a rookie in 2009 and Mark Sanchez helped get the Jets to the AFC title game the very next year in his first season. Purdy joined those two as the farthest rookie quarterbacks have made it in the playoffs. No rookie quarterback has made it to a Super Bowl yet (at least not as a starter).

What is Brock Purdy's playoff record?

Entering the divisional round against the Packers, Purdy's career playoff record sits at 2-1. He led the Niners to wins over the Seahawks and Cowboys last year before the team fell in Philadelphia to the Eagles. Purdy was injured in that game, which definitely hurt San Francisco's chances.

Purdy has a chance to move to 3-1 in playoff games with a win over the Packers this weekend. A loss would drop him to .500.
