Kaepernick, 49ers rally to beat Packers

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick

SAN FRANCISCO–This one went down to the wire, but Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers scored another win over the Packers, 34-28.

Down 24-21 with 10:56 to play and 76 yards away from victory, Aaron Rodgers began a drive that would put the Packers into the lead. The big play was a 37-yard, toe-tap reception by Jordy Nelson, and then rookie running back Eddie Lacy went over the top for a touchdown from two yards out that staked the Packers to a 28-24 lead.

A 27-yard field goal by the 49ers’ Phil Dawson to start the fourth quarter broke a 21-21 tie.

Kaepernick and the 49ers roared back following Lacy’s touchdown run. Kaepernick completed a 43-yard pass to Anquan Boldin and then running back Kendall Hunter turned right end for 23 yards to the Packers 9-yard line.

Frank Gore burst up the middle for 7 yards to the 2-yard line, from where Gore scored on the next play, and the 49ers had regained the lead, 31-28.

The ball was back in Rodgers’ court with 5:47 to play and the Packers starting at their 9-yard line. On third-and-four, and with the game potentially on the line, Rodgers eluded the rush but threw incomplete, forcing a punt by Tim Masthay.

Kaepernick faced a third-and-four and converted with a pass to Vernon Davis. The 49ers were now in control of the clock and began exhausting the Packers’ times out. The Packers spent their final time out with the 49ers facing fourth-and-two with 3:00 to play. When Kaepernick completed a third-down pass that put him over 400 yards passing for the game, the Packers were running out of time. Dawson eventually kicked a field goal with :26 to play.

Kaepernick completed 27 of 39 passes for 412 yards and three touchdowns. Rodgers was 21 of 36 for 333 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

In what turned out to be a shootout between Rodgers and Kaepernick, the big difference between this game and the 49ers’ win over the Packers in January was the Packers defense’s ability to stop the 49ers running game in this game.
