George Kittle is looking forward to being on the road for the San Francisco 49ers' divisional round playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, the 49ers tight end expressed excitement about returning to Lambeau Field for the first time since the 2018 season.

"Lambeau's gonna be awesome," Kittle said. "A historic stadium, haven't played there since 2018 - very excited to go there. It's really kind of a dream come true, so looking forward to that experience playing a night playoff game at Lambeau, zero degrees. What more could you ask for?"

The current weather forecast in Green Bay is calling for a high of 21 degrees and a low of one degree Saturday, with a chance of snow. That's relatively mild compared to some of the other cold-weather games Kittle has played in before.

"I've played in a couple below 10, below like 15 degrees games, and it's very fun," he said. "I had a couple games - I remember my redshirt freshman (year) where I didn't play, but I had to dress, and they didn't have enough coats for everybody. So I literally stood there on the sideline, and I wasn't allowed to wear sleeves, either. So you just see the 215-pound George Kittle standing there on the sideline shivering. It was really fun."
