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.

Elijah Mitchell finishing the day with over 100 rushing yards while Raheem Mostert and Trey Sermon watched from the sidelines was probably not the result anyone expected at running back for the San Francisco 49ers in their 41-33 Week 1 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. But that's exactly how things transpired after the third-round pick Sermon was an unexpected healthy scratch and Mostert left the game early due to a knee injury. Mitchell, who was selected in Round 6 of the 2021 NFL Draft out of the University of Louisiana, finished the day with 19 carries for 104 yards, with one of those carries going for a 38-yard touchdown. Mitchell was impressive for the 49ers during training camp and the preseason when he was healthy, so his success when given the

Much has been discussed about the San Francisco 49ers' injuries at running back. On the defensive side of the football, the cornerback group has been impacted by injuries too. Emmanuel Moseley (knee) has yet to be active for a game this season. In addition, the team lost Jason Verrett for the season to a torn ACL. This past Sunday, against the Philadelphia Eagles, the 49ers started Josh Norman and Deommodore Lenoir at cornerback. The hope is that Moseley will return to the lineup this weekend against the Green Bay Packers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR this afternoon and was asked about his cornerback situation leading into Week 3. Should Moseley return to the field, who starts opposite him? Norman or Lenoir?
