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.

Pro Football Focus continues its rankings of position groups across the NFL ahead of the 2021 season. The latest involves all 32 secondaries. Where do the San Francisco 49ers rank? You have to scroll down to No. 20 to find defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans' group. As for the rest of the NFC West, the Los Angeles Rams sit at No. 9, the Arizona Cardinals at No. 22, and the Seattle Seahawks at No. 26. San Francisco was able to keep much of its secondary together this offseason after much of it hit free agency.

Haberman and Middlekauff rank the injuries the 49ers must avoid in 2021

Injuries are unavoidable in the NFL. No team is going to make it through a now-17-game season without injuries. That's why having good depth is so important. However, there remain some players who, if they leave the lineup, could dramatically impact a team's production. We saw a lot of that with the San Francisco 49ers last season. Injuries plagued the roster as the team limped its way through a six-win season. You knew the loss of pass rusher Nick Bosa to a torn ACL in Week 2 would impact the season. On the offensive side of the football, the team lost Jimmy Garoppolo, and the quarterback went on to miss 10 of the last 14 games. The miserable injury luck continued this week. San Francisco lost two players to significant injuries during Monday's practice.

The San Francisco 49ers were the most injured team last season. That's a title they would like to avoid in 2021. However, it's been a rough last few weeks. The Niners lost running back Jeff Wilson Jr. to a torn meniscus in late May. He is not expected to return until midseason, possibly as late as November. Then on Monday, San Francisco lost offensive lineman Justin Skule to a torn ACL and safety Tarvarius Moore to a torn Achilles. The 49ers canceled Tuesday's practice out of an abundance of caution. The team had its final practice of organized team activities (OTAs) slated for Thursday and then a mandatory three-day minicamp next week. That won't happen now. Head coach Kyle Shanahan announced on Wednesday that those practices have been canceled as

The San Francisco 49ers were, by far, the most injury-plagued team in the NFL last season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is trying to avoid a repeat of the team's poor luck. Offensive lineman Justin Skule and safety Tarvarius Moore both suffered serious injuries during Monday's practice. Skule went down with a torn ACL while Moore suffered a torn Achilles. Skule is done for the year, and Moore could be as well. Weeks earlier, the 49ers lost Jeff Wilson Jr. to a freak injury. The running back suffered a torn meniscus while in the locker room. He is expected to be out until midseason. The recent losses prompted Shanahan to cancel the remainder of the offseason
