Posted by packers.com on January 5, 2014 – 9:02 pm

PACKERS FALL TO 49ERS IN NFC WILD CARD GAME

- The Packers lost to the 49ers, 23-20, on Sunday in an NFC Wild Card contest in front of 77,525 at Lambeau Field.

- Sunday’s contest against San Francisco was Green Bay’s 49th postseason game, which ranks No. 3 in league history behind Dallas (58) and Pittsburgh (54). The Packers now have an all-time record of 30-19 (.612) in the postseason.

- With a game-time temperature of 5 degrees on Sunday, it marked the coldest game at Lambeau Field since Dec. 7, 2008, vs. Houston (3 degrees). It was the seventh-coldest game at Lambeau Field (since 1959) and the fourth-coldest postseason game at the stadium.


OTHER POSTGAME NOTES:

- With eight points on Sunday, K Mason Crosby brought his career postseason total to 77 points, No. 1 in franchise playoff history. He surpassed Chris Jacke (73 points) for the team playoff scoring mark.

- Crosby made both of his FG attempts on Sunday, extending his franchise-record streak to nine consecutive FGs made in the postseason.

- Crosby set a franchise playoff record by scoring in his 11th consecutive postseason game.

- FB John Kuhn scored on a 1-yard TD run in the fourth quarter, which gave him at least one TD in each of the last five postseasons (2009-13). He is the only current NFL player to do so each postseason since 2009 and he matched the team playoff record set by RB Dorsey Levens from 1994-98.

- Kuhn now has seven career TDs in the postseason (four rushing, three receiving), which moves him into sole possession of the No. 2 spot in team playoff history behind only WR Antonio Freeman (12 TDs).

- WR Jordy Nelson’s 5-yard TD catch in the second quarter was his fourth career TD grab in the postseason and his first since Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh (Feb. 6, 2011). With four career TD catches in the playoffs, Nelson is tied for No. 4 in team postseason history.

- CB Tramon Williams’ second-quarter interception was the fourth of his career in the postseason, which ties him with five others for No. 1 in franchise playoff history.

- LB Brad Jones posted the second sack of his career in the postseason when he brought down QB Colin Kaepernick in the first quarter.

- DT Mike Daniels posted his first career sack in the playoffs when he brought Kaepernick down for a 5-yard loss in the third quarter.

What to watch for in Sunday’s Wild Card game

Posted by packers.com on January 5, 2014 – 1:40 pm

- Green Bay has an all-time postseason record of 14-4 (.778) at Lambeau Field.

- The Packers have averaged 30.3 points per game in 10 playoff contests under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, which ranks No. 4 in the NFL over that span. That includes the three highest point totals in franchise postseason history (48 at Atlanta, Jan. 15, 2011; 45 at Arizona, Jan. 10, 2010; 42 vs. Seattle. Jan. 12, 2008).

- The Packers have scored 83 second-half points in their last four games, No. 2 in the NFL over that span behind only Philadelphia (92).

- Green Bay has rushed for 110-plus yards in each of its last four games, averaging 143.3 yards on the ground over that span.

- The Packers have posted 12 takeaways in its last five games, which is tied for No. 3 in the NFL over that span.

- Green Bay has recorded two or more takeaways in each of its last five games, its longest single-season streak since a nine-game stretch in 2002.

- QB Aaron Rodgers ranks No. 3 in NFL postseason history (min. 150 attempts) with a 103.6 passer rating, No. 5 with a 66.1 completion percentage and No. 3 with a 1.71 interception percentage (292/5).

- In five career starts vs. San Francisco (including playoffs), Rodgers has completed 130 of 195 passes (66.7 percent) for 1,535 yards and 12 TDs with three INTs for a 104.5 passer rating.

- Rodgers has three career 300-yard passing games in the playoffs, which is tied with Brett Favre for No. 1 in team history. Rodgers has posted a 110-plus passer rating in four of his eight career postseason starts.

- FB John Kuhn has scored a touchdown in each of the last four postseasons (2009-12), the only player in the NFL to accomplish that feat over that span. He is one of three players in franchise history to score a TD in four or more consecutive postseasons (RB Dorsey Levens, five, 1994-98; WR Antonio Freeman, four, 1995-98).

- K Mason Crosby needs five points to surpass K Chris Jacke (73) for No. 1 on the franchise’s all-time playoff scoring list. Crosby has scored in 10 straight playoff games (2007-12), which is tied for the longest scoring streak in team postseason history (Chris Jacke, Ryan Longwell).

- Crosby has made seven consecutive FGs in the playoffs dating back to the 2010 postseason, which is the longest streak in team history.

- CB Sam Shields has posted an interception in each of his last two playoff games. He is tied with four other players for No. 1 on the team’s career playoff list with four interceptions.

Packers to host 49ers in NFC Wild Card contest at Lambeau Field

Posted by packers.com on January 5, 2014 – 12:40 pm

- For the second straight season, the Green Bay Packers (8-7-1, No. 4 seed) and San Francisco 49ers (12-4, No. 5 seed) will meet in the postseason, the first playoff matchup between the clubs at Lambeau Field since a Wild Card contest on Jan. 13, 2002.

- It is the first time the Packers have faced the same opponent in back-to-back postseasons since Green Bay played San Francisco in the playoffs in four consecutive seasons (1995-98). The Packers and 49ers played in an NFC Divisional contest last season at Candlestick Park.

- This will mark the seventh time that the Packers and 49ers have met in the postseason. That is tied for the most games for Green Bay against one opponent in the playoffs (N.Y. Giants, seven). The Packers hold a 4-2 advantage over San Francisco in the postseason series.

- This will be the second meeting this season and the fourth in the last 16 months between the clubs. The Packers visited San Francisco in Week 1 this season, a 34-28 win for the 49ers. It marks the fourth time (1996, 1998, 2012) in the history of the series that the clubs have squared off in both the regular season and the postseason.

- Since 2010, Green Bay has a .695 regular-season winning percentage (44-19-1), No. 1 in the NFC over that span, with San Francisco checking in at No. 2 in the conference with a .664 winning percentage (42-21-1).

- Today’s game will be a matchup of two of the most successful teams in the postseason. Green Bay is 30-18 all-time in the playoffs, a .625 winning percentage that ranks No. 2 in NFL history. San Francisco checks in at No. 5 in the league at 28-19 (.596) in the postseason. The teams have combined for 18 world championships (Green Bay 13, San Francisco 5).

- Including playoffs, the Packers have won 13 of the last 17 games against the 49ers, but San Francisco has emerged victorious in the last three.

 

BACK IN THE POSTSEASON

- With a thrilling 33-28 win over the Bears last Sunday, the Packers clinched their third straight NFC North title, the first time they have done so since 2002-04. It marked Green Bay’s 21st division crown in franchise history.

- In the 12 seasons of the NFC North (2002-13), Green Bay has captured the division title seven times (2002-04, 2007, 2011-13).

- This marks the Packers’ fifth consecutive playoff appearance (2009-13), one of only two NFL teams (New England) to do so over that span. Green Bay has advanced to the playoffs in six of the last seven seasons.

- Green Bay’s streak of five straight playoff appearances ranks second in franchise history behind only a six-season stretch from 1993-98.

- This is the Packers’ 29th postseason berth in team history and their 16th appearance in the last 21 seasons. Green Bay’s 16 appearances in the free-agency era (since 1993) are the most of any team in the NFL.

- The Packers currently rank No. 3 in NFL history with their 29 playoff appearances, trailing only the N.Y. Giants (31) and Dallas Cowboys (30).

- Today will be Green Bay’s 49th postseason game, which will move them into the No. 3 spot in league history behind only the Cowboys (58) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (54).

- Since the NFL went to a 12-team playoff format in 1990, Green Bay has been the No. 4 seed three other times (1994, 2001, 2003).

-   This will be the 11th time that the Packers have played in the Wild Card round in their 16 playoff appearances since 1990. Green Bay has a 7-4 (.636) record in Wild Card games, including a 2-1 mark under Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

 

PLAYOFF CAPTAINS

- As per team tradition, the Packers alternated game captains each week during the regular season. The team elects captains for the entire postseason.

- Players elected captains were WR Jordy Nelson and QB Aaron Rodgers (offense), S Morgan Burnett and LB A.J. Hawk (defense), and K Mason Crosby and CB Jarrett Bush (special teams).

 

WEARING THE STRIPES

- Today’s officiating crew includes referee Ed Hochuli (85), umpire Rich Hall (49), head linesman Mark Hittner (28), line judge Ron Marinucci (107), field judge Mike Weir (50), side judge James Coleman (95) and back judge Lee Dyer (27). Alternates include Larry Rose (128), Mike Spanier (90) and Terry Brown (43).

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.
