Packers, 49ers remain tied after three quarters

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on September 8, 2013 – 5:58 pm

130908-in-game-updates-3-300SAN FRANCISCO–The Packers and 49ers were tied, 21-21, after three quarters of play on Sunday at Candlestick Park.

Consecutive passes from Colin Kaepernick to Anquan Boldin to start the second half moved the 49ers across midfield. On a blitz, Kaepernick sidestepped the rush and threw to Boldin for 30 yards. From the Packers 16, Frank Gore ran hard up the middle for five yards to the 11.

Boldin made the catch of the game on the next play, one-handing a bullet from Kaepernick at the 2-yard line. On the next play, the Packers bought the play-action fake, which left Vernon Davis wide open in the end zone. The 49ers led, 21-14, with 9:46 to play.

In what’ve been a turning point in the game, the Packers followed the 49ers’ touchdown drive with a three-and-out that barely ate up two minutes of the clock. The 49ers began their next possession at their 35-yard with 7:41 left to play in the third quarter. The Packers defense quickly forced a punt.

Aaron Rodgers moved the ball into scoring range. It’s important to note that his offensive line gave him ample time to find open receivers.

On second and 10, Rodgers found Cobb over the middle for 18 yards, and Rodgers followed that with a touchdown strike to Jordy Nelson that tied the game at 21-21.

Back stormed Kaepernick. A 37-yard pass to Davis put the ball at the Packers 26. The Packers defense continued to throttle the 49ers running game, but when Kaepernick was able to allude the rush on third-and-nine and scramble 15 yards for a first down, the 49ers were knocking on the door, again.

That’s when Clay Matthews stuffed the read option, tackled Kaepernick for a 7-yard loss and forced third and long at the start of the fourth quarter.

    I thought McMillian was supposed to be the tackler, while Jennings was the cover. McMillian has whiffed on countless tackles so far..

    Glad this game is over. I was worried about this game – but after watching it – I know we can beat the 49ers now. We shot ourselves in the foot and we can definitely win another game against this team. They are not so scary and tough like they want to make everyone think. The 49ers next opponent is thanking our team for showing everyone that. Take away Boldin and what did they really have? Sorry 49ers to take away your mystique! (And go ahead and let your heads get big by all the comments that will be made by the football talking heads – you are their “Golden Boys” right now – but that time will come to an end. Mark my words.

    Pack was very impressive….the secondary needs some work too many missed tackles and huge plays given up by the secondary. What was up with the return man he needs to take a knee when he’s deep or we need someone else in there. If our running game gets rolling and the D continues to improve especially the secondary watch out. Hey MM what up with missing the extra down that the Refs gave the 9ers on the play where Clay got flagged and 9ers were flagged after the play…come on coaches you all gotta step up too. Over all I think the Pack have the potential for a strong year!

    Hey, Vic–
    Look up the difference between allude and elude, OK? You’re supposed to be a professional writer, right?

    I think that there is never a good loss. Sure there are some good plays in a losing effort but at the end of the day a loss is a loss and doesn’t get you any closer to home field advantage in the playoffs. If the secondary doesn’t start playing their respective coverages we all don’t have to worry about playoffs.
