Green Bay Packers running back Eddie LacySAN FRANCISCO–The 49ers and Packers were tied, 7-7, at the end of the first quarter of Sunday’s season opener at Candlestick Park.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick pitched a 20-yard touchdown pass to tight end Vernon Davis with 2:52 remaining in the quarter to break a scoreless tie. The touchdown pass capped a 13-play, 83-yard drive in which the 49ers converted a couple of third-and-short plays with runs by Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter. Kaepernick completed six of seven pass attempts in the drive. Davis beat safety M.D. Jennings for the touchdown.

The Packers responded inmmediately, Aaron Rodgers moving the Packers into 49ers territory with a 31-yard pass completion to wide receiver Jordy Nelson. That was followed by an adeptly called screen pass to Eddie Lacy that gained 31 yards to the 49ers 5-yard line.

Two plays later, Rodgers threw to wide receiver Randall Cobb in the right flat, and Cobb was able to reach the ball over the goal line. The drive covered 80 yards in six plays.

Through one quarter of play, Kaepernick had scrambled one time for a harmless eight yards. He did far more damage with his arm, throwing for 79 yards and one touchdown.

Rodgers completed seven of 10 passes for 116 yards. Lacy rushed four times for 1 yard, but his screen-pass reception and run was one of the big plays of the first quarter.
