Packers face 49ers for fifth time since 2012

Posted by Duke Bobber on October 4, 2015 – 12:25 pm

– The Green Bay Packers take their second road trip of the season to face the San Francisco 49ers. Including playoffs, this will be the fifth meeting between the teams since 2012.

– The Packers are 3-0 for the first time since 2011, when they started 13-0. It is the third 3-0 start under Head Coach Mike McCarthy (4-0, 2007). The Packers are one of seven NFL teams still undefeated this season.

– For the third time in the last five seasons, Green Bay has scored 95-plus points in its first three games (96 in 2013 and 2015, 99 in 2011). From 1970 to 2010, the Packers only surpassed 95 points in their first three games once (115 in 1996).

– Dating back to 2014, the Packers have won five or their last seven road games during the regular season.

– Green Bay’s 41 road wins during the regular season under McCarthy are the second most in the NFC (Philadelphia-42) and the fifth most in the league since 2006 (New England-51 / Dallas-43 / Indianapolis-43).

– Dating back to 1970, the Packers have played the 49ers (30) the second most (St. Louis, 31) among teams it has not been in a division with (including playoffs).

– Four of the last six contests between Green Bay and San Francisco have been decided by eight points or less (including playoffs).

– Since 1990, the Packers are 9-2 during the regular season in California (49ers / Raiders / Chargers / Rams), including 2-1 under McCarthy.

– Under McCarthy, the Packers are 7-5 in games played the week after appearing on Monday Night Football, including wins in five of the last seven.

– This will be just the fifth time Green Bay has played a road game the week following a game on MNF since 2006. The Packers are 3-1 in the previous contests.

– QB Aaron Rodgers has started against San Francisco six times (including playoffs), completing 147 of 221 passes for 1,712 yards, 13 touchdowns, three interceptions and a passer rating of 103.7. Rodgers’ six starts against San Francisco are tied for the most he has made against a non-division team (Seattle).

– The 49ers have won each of the last four matchups (including playoffs), but the Packers had won the previous eight against San Francisco.

– The series against San Francisco started in 1950 and is the ninth oldest for Green Bay (Arizona, 1921 / Chicago, 1921 / Detroit, 1930 / New York Giants, 1928 / Philadelphia, 1933 / Pittsburgh, 1933 / St. Louis, 1937 / Washington, 1932).


– Green Bay is looking to start 4-0 for the first time since 2011 (13-0) and for the third time under McCarthy (2007, 4-0).

– Dating back to 2008, the Packers are 21-6 in the month of October, including a 10-4 mark on the road. Green Bay’s 21 wins and .778 winning percentage both rank No. 2 in the NFL over that span. The Packers have won 16 of their last 18 games played in October.

– The Packers’ offensive line has only given up three sacks in the first three games of the season (tied for sixth fewest in the NFL). It is the fewest a Green Bay offensive line has allowed in the first three games since 2010 (three).

– Dating back to 1982, the Packers have allowed four or fewer sacks through the team’s first four games twice (three in 2004 / one in 2003).

– Since Week 10 last season, Green Bay has allowed just 12 sacks, the second fewest in the NFL over that span (Baltimore, eight).

– Green Bay’s defense has registered a sack in 39 consecutive regular-season games, a franchise record and the longest current streak in the league.

– In the last two weeks, the Packers defense has held running backs Marshawn Lynch (41 yards on 15 carries) and Jamaal Charles (49 yards on 11 carries) to less than 50 yards rushing each.

– If the Packers score 25 or more points, it will be just the second time (dating back to 1921) that Green Bay has recorded 25-plus points in each of its first four games of the season (2011).


– According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Rodgers (10) joined Peyton Manning (12 in 2013) as the only QBs in NFL history to throw 10-plus touchdown passes and no interceptions in the first three games of the season.

– In 12 of his last 16 starts in October, Rodgers has registered a passer rating of at least 100. He has posted seven 130-plus rating games over that span, including twice last season: a 138.7 rating in a 42-10 win vs. Minnesota in Week 5 and a 154.5 rating in a victory vs. Carolina in Week 7.

– Rodgers has recorded a passer rating of 100-plus in each of the first four games of the season once in his career (2011, first 12 games).

– Dating back to 2014, Rodgers has not thrown an interception in 16 of the last 19 regular-season games, including the last five. The Packers are 15-1 in those games.

– Rodgers has recorded a passer rating of 100-plus in 14 of the last 19 regular-season games.

– WR Randall Cobb has registered 100-plus receiving yards or a touchdown in seven consecutive games.

– Cobb needs one reception to extend his streak of consecutive regular-season games with a reception to 44.

– After recording a career-best three touchdown receptions against Kansas City, Cobb looks to register multiple TD receptions in consecutive games for the first time in his career.

– Cobb and WR James Jones have each registered four touchdown receptions so far this season. Dating back to 1960, they joined Carroll Dale (1968), Keith Jackson (1996), James Lofton (1983) and Ed West (1989) as the only Packers to record four receiving touchdowns in the team’s first three games of a season.

– Dating back to last season (with Oakland in 2014), Jones has registered a touchdown reception in five of the last six games. He has totaled six touchdown receptions over that span.

– If Jones records a receiving touchdown, it will be the first time in his career he has registered one or more touchdown receptions in four consecutive games. He has recorded a touchdown reception in three consecutive games four times in his career (2011, twice in 2012, 2015).

– Cobb and Jones are the first duo in team history to both have four TD catches in the first three games of the season.


– LB Clay Matthews recorded two sacks in the win over Kansas City. It was his 13th career game with two or more sacks. He is one shy of tying Tim Harris (14, 1986-90) for No. 3 in team history (Reggie White, 16; Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, 15).

– Matthews aims to register multiple sacks in back-to-back games for the fourth time in his career (2010, 2012, 2014).

– Including playoffs, Matthews has 4.5 sacks in the last three games against the 49ers.

– LB Julius Peppers is tied with DT Mike Daniels for the team lead with 2.5 sacks this season. Dating back to last season (including playoffs), Peppers has seven sacks in the last seven games.

– Over the last two games, LB Jayrone Elliott has recorded a sack, a forced fumble and an interception.

– CB Sam Shields looks to record an interception in back-to-back weeks for the first time in his career.


– K Mason Crosby (274) is four field-goal attempts short of surpassing Ryan Longwell (277) for the most in team history. In Week 2, Crosby (1,065) passed Longwell (1,054) for the franchise career scoring record.

– WR Ty Montgomery is tied for No. 3 in the NFL in kickoff return average this season (31.5). In Week 1, he recorded a kick return of 46 yards, the longest kick return by a Packer since a 70-yarder by S Micah Hyde vs. Pittsburgh on 12/22/13.


– Today’s officiating crew includes referee Terry McAulay (77), umpire Bryan Neale (92), head linesman Derick Bowers (74), line judge Tom Stephan (68), field judge Michael Banks (72), side judge Jonah Monroe (120) and back judge Greg Steed (12).

Kaepernick, 49ers rally to beat Packers

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on September 8, 2013 – 6:48 pm

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.

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.

Packers rally for 14-14 tie at halftime

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on September 8, 2013 – 5:04 pm

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers

SAN FRANCISCO–The Packers rallied for a 14-14 tie with the 49ers at halftime of Sunday’s season opener at Candlestick Park.

With the score tied, 7-7, the Packers defense forced a punt early in the second quarter, but rookie running back Eddie Lacy fumbled on first down and the 49ers recovered the ball at the Packers 14-yard line. The fumble is reminiscent of Jeremy Ross’ fumble of a punt near his goal line in the January playoff game.

On a key third-and-one at the 5-yard line, the 49ers were flagged for illegal procedure. Frank Gore had rushed to the 3-yard line for what appeared to be a first and goal. The Packers had the 49ers stopped until Clay Matthews was flagged for a late hit on Kaepernick, but an ensuing dead-ball foul on the 49ers canceled Matthews’ penalty and caused the down to be replayed.

That was no problem for Kaepernick, who used the down-over play to pitch a 10-yard touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin on a quick slant. Safety Jerron McMillian whiffed on the tackle attempt. The 49ers led, 14-7.

Packers safety Morgan Burnett is inactive with a hamstring injury.

The Packers began a drive at their 13 later in the quarter. A 22-yard completion fron Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson moved the ball across midfield. That’s when lightning struck the Packers in the form of a pass that bounced out of tight end Jermichael Finley’s hands and into the hands of 49ers rookie safety Eric Reid. Reid returned the interception to the Packers 3-yard line, where Rodgers made the saving tackle.

Automatic replay review, however, determined Reid had been touched down by Finley at the 49ers 44-yard line, with 4:28 to play in the first half.

Kaepernick immediately went to work. He threw a 22-yard completion to Boldin. Two plays later, however, Kaepernick was sacked by Matthews, forcing a third-and-18 on the first play inside the two-minute warning. Phil Dawson eventually missed wide to the left on a 48-yard field goal attempt, leaving the Packers with outstanding field position at their 38-yard line.

A pass to Finley and a roughing-the-passer penalty moved the ball to the 49ers 35-yard line with 1:24 to play. Guard Josh Sitton, however, was flagged for his third foul of the half, which helped create a third-and-20 from the 49ers 45. The Packers got a break when an offside penalty negated a Rodgers interception, and on third and 15 Nelson caught a pass along the sideline, broke a tackle and got the first down.

Rodgers found Nelson, again, this time over the middle at 15 with :42 to play in the half. John Kuhn converted a third-and-one and Rodgers followed that play with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Finley, who broke a tackle.

Rodgers was 14 of 23 for 203 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Kaepernick was 13 of 19 for 163 yards and two touchdowns. The Packers defense held the 49ers to 16 yards rushing.

Time of possession could become an issue in the second half, as the 49ers enjoy a seven-minute TOP advantage on a warm day.

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.
