Fans were heartbroken after the Packers lost in San Francisco during the NFC Championship game on Sunday.

Before the game began, fans at SkyBox Sports Bar remained anxious but hopeful that the Packers could move on to Miami.

"When you’re from Wisconsin like us, so close to home, you can never underestimate Green Bay," said Amanda Davis. "So we’re confident that we have faith," she said.

But during the game, San Francisco surged ahead. At Uncle Bucks Bar, fans collectively groaned as Aaron Rodgers threw an interception shortly before halftime. Some fans put on their coats to leave.

"I'm not really surprised that we’re down 20 to nothing at almost halftime because that’s kind of how they played most of the season," said Judy Mijal. "We were kind of hoping they would come with their A game," she said.

As the game continued, several long faces were seen staring at the TV. Many fans said that they felt frustrated and let down.

"The niners, they really came out with the speed and energy, and we really couldn’t match that," said Ryan Boparai. "I'm in angst right now, look at me. I'm sitting here I can’t even have fun right now," he said.

The Pack came back a little bit, but ultimately fell to San Francisco 37 to 20. The fans who vowed to stay the whole game said they will remain loyal to the Green and Gold.

"My heart hurts, but at the same time it’s been a great season," said Sara Gauthier.
