Packers, 49ers remain tied after three quarters

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.
