NFL Network “live” broadcast will join 49ers-Packers game an hour late

Aug 26, 2016 at 10:53 AM--


NFL Network explained why their "live" broadcast of tonight's Week 3 preseason match-up between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers was listed on their schedule as starting at 8 PM PT and 11 PM ET. Kickoff is at 7 PM PT and 10 PM ET.

Due to broadcast restrictions with the CBS airing of the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers game, NFL Network will join the game in progress an hour after kickoff. However, NFL Network does note that the full-game re-airing will occur on Saturday at 1:30 PM PT.

Tonight's game will likely feature the highly publicized first game of the preseason for 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick amid a quarterback competition with Blaine Gabbert. For Packers fans, it will also likely be the only preseason game that quarterback Aaron Rodgers plays in. So to join the game late and possibly miss a big chunk of play by those two quarterbacks is a huge disappointment for fans outside of the Bay Area and Wisconsin home markets.



The game will be televised on KPIX 5 in the Bay Area, NBC 26 in Green Bay, and various other networks throughout Northern California and the Great Lakes region.

NFL Week 7: 49ers vs. Colts live updates

4th Quarter TURNOVER ALERT: After three straight checkdowns from Jimmy Garoppolo despite being down two scores, the veteran quarterback floats a deep pass into the hands of Khari Willis, throwing his second interception of the game, and killing the 49ers chances for good. TOUCHDOWN ALERT: On 3rd & 10, Carson Wentz lobs a pass to Michael Pittman, who easily runs it in for a touchdown after a terrible play by Dre Kirkpatrick on the ball. The Colts now lead 30-18 with under three minutes left in the game, essentially closing it. TURNOVER ALERT: On 3rd & 3, Jimmy Garoppolo throws a boneheaded interception to Deebo Samuel after fixating on him as the first read, with Xavier Rhodes making the



John Lynch 'fully confident' 49ers can rebound from 3-game losing streak

The San Francisco 49ers started 2-0 but have since lost three consecutive games. No one inside the organization is panicking, though. Instead, the focus remains on one game at a time. That means looking toward the Indianapolis Colts, not backward at the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals. At 2-3, San Francisco sits in last place within the NFC West. However, general manager John Lynch is confident he and head coach Kyle Shanahan have built a roster that can rebound. The 49ers are in their bye week, and a lot of football remains in this 17-game season. "I'm fully confident [the pieces are in place to turn things around] because of the people in our room and the character of the people in our room, because of the people we have in leadership

49ers hope Brandon Aiyuk's 'great week' of practice carries over to Colts game, says Deebo Samuel

By Rohan Chakravarthi

Brandon Aiyuk has certainly been in the spotlight over the 49ers bye week, as his lack of touches on the year has been questioned, given his impressive rookie season. Aiyuk currently has just 15 targets on the year, good for 5th on the team, and only eight of those plays have resulted in a catch. Last year, Aiyuk accumulated 60 receptions, 748 yards, and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three categories while playing in just 12 games. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will return to the field Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts and has had the chance to practice with Aiyuk and the first-team offense after being cleared for the calf injury he sustained against the Seattle Seahawks. Amongst that first-team offense is breakout star receiver Deebo
