Packers beat 49ers 17-3: Game recaps from Oct. 4

Oct 4, 2015 at 4:19 PM--


The Green Bay Packers struck early as QB Aaron Rodgers struck TE Richard Rodgers on a short touchdown pass for 9 yards. After that, the San Francisco 49ers would exceed expectations, keeping the Packers scoreless for the remainder of the first half.
At times, the 49ers offense was able to move the football. However, their lone score of the first half was on a 33 yard field goal following a 12 play, 57 yard drive.

The second half started just like the first. On the Packers' first possession, they marched down the field on a 9 play, 61 yard drive that ended with one yard touchdown run by FB John Kuhn. That gave the Packers a 14-3 lead.

Green Bay would go on to win 17-3.

It wasn't the blowout that many were predicting with the 49ers defense doing very well against Rodgers and the always dangerous Packers offense, but a struggling 49ers offense once again killed the team's hopes of an upset victory.


For the second straight week, 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick struggled. He was often off target in his passes and his runs were erratic. The 49ers' offensive line struggled against the Packers' pass rush, with Kaepernick getting sacked six times, including a sack on 4th and 5 near the end zone toward the end of the fourth quarter.

Kaepernick would finish the game 13 of 25 for 160 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception. He also led the team in rushing with 57 yards on 10 carries. RB Carlos Hyde had only 20 yards on 8 carries.

Rodgers would finish the game 22 of 32 for 224 yards, a touchdown, and no interceptions.

The Packers improve to 4-0 while the 49ers fall to 1-3 on the season.

Jimmie Ward: Garoppolo gives 49ers a 'great chance' to beat Packers

A lot of people like to criticize Jimmy Garoppolo. He's not the type of quarterback who plays mistake-free football. However, he does win football games—a lot more than he loses. Garoppolo is 37-15 as a starter, counting the playoffs. Some will argue that often, the 49ers win games despite Garoppolo. This past weekend's playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys is a perfect example of that. Garoppolo tossed a costly interception that kept Dallas in the game, but the team held on for a 23-17 victory. Garoppolo is banged up, though. He was already playing through an injured right thumb that causes pain with each throw. In addition, Garoppolo suffered a right shoulder sprain in the game. Nevertheless, he's been practicing this week, and all signs point to him



How the 49ers can beat the Packers: Keys to Victory

Things haven't changed much for the Green Bay Packers since their Week 3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium. The Packers are still very much that same team. The same can't be said for the 49ers, who have tweaked some things since their rocky start to the season. The 49ers went 3-5 through the first 9 weeks of the season, but since Week 10 they have won 9 of their last 11 games, which was the best record in the NFL during that span. When looking at the differences between the Week 3 49ers and the current team, three things jump out to me. 1. Defensive tackle Arik Armstead has been moved inside as opposed to being strictly an edge rusher. It's no coincidence that the 49ers have since been the top defense against the



Tough task: 49ers can't let Packers WR Davante Adams have another big game

By David Bonilla

Davante Adams, the two-time first-team All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler, is among the best wide receivers in the NFL. He's been one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers' most reliable weapons this season and will be someone the San Francisco 49ers defense has to slow down during Saturday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. Adams has been a handful for the 49ers in recent years. The receiver has hauled in 48 receptions for 618 yards and five touchdowns in five meetings with the Niners since 2018, including the 2019 season's nine-reception, 138-yard performance in the NFC Championship Game. That's an average of nearly 124 yards per game. He's been dominant. "I just think of how balanced he is and how his lower half is with his feet," head coach Kyle Shanahan said
