Packers, 49ers tied after one quarter

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on September 8, 2013 – 4:04 pm

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.

    How stupid can McCarthy be to not decline the 3rd down penalty….you know SF would kick the field goal…it isn’t like you were going to take them out of range when the ball is inside the 10 yard line..

    STUPID!!!!

    Agree. You have the 49′ers stopped. THis is big expecially after a turnover. Instead of declining the penalty, McCarthy accepts the penalty. He gives the momentum back to the 49′ers. What happens afterward is not relevant. Maybe it is time to replace the entire coaching staff.

    my god, the defense actually did learn how to play disciplined and keep the quarterback in a pocket, GREAT JOB

    The D-backs need to step up. Too many guys are wide open time and again.

    I really hope you bring back the in-game chat… I’m watching but I like to interact online…

    That is a tricky call by McCarthy, but a good one IMO. If he declines the penalty and I am Jim Harbaugh I go for it…

    @Joe

    Agree that Harbaugh would go for a 4th and 1. I thought it was a fine call by McCarthy.

    Packers get > 3 yards on a run, look for the flag. Argh!

    Game tied? No way Harbaugh goes for it…too much of a risk if he doesn’t get it. He takes the points.

    If Ross #10 is on the roster after 11AM, it’s time to ask Ted to resign. This player may be fast, but the idiot has no brain or field of vision. He has cost the team to much, I have not seen an upside to Ross.

    Another game of giving up over 500 yards of offense….Another game of no run game……Another game of getting Aaron Rodgers sacked 4 times…another game of getting the lead only to watch the Defense let the other team march right back down the field and score….another game of the exact same players doing the exact same thing as last year…..

    Harbaugh would go for it no question. At that point in the game he has nothing to lose. If they don’t get it, the packers are backed up. I blame this loss on Ross. The defense is much improved.

    I can’t believe the Ref’s on the field and in the press box, Two Coaching staffs, No one knew the rule of loss of down on the double foul, one by each team. OR, was the retired Ref on Fox wrong???
