Just like the Chargers had to do, the 49ers were taken out of beautiful conditions in California and forced to go play in Green Bay, in blustery cold conditions. However they did avoid snow.
After winning the coin toss, the Green Bay Packers elected to receive the opening kickoff and get the ball into Aaron Rodgers hands.
The Green Bay fans hearts were ripped out early as Rodgers was sacked by Patrick Willis on just the 4th play of the game and was forced to leave the game with a chest injury. Backup Matt Flynn was brought in and the Packers were forced to punt after Jordy Nelson picked up 16 on a 4th and 17.
Frank Gore got the first three touches for the 49ers, as he picked up back to back first downs on an 11 and a 29 yard run, followed by a 18 yard screen pass. But on third down at the Green Bay 14, Colin Kaepernick was picked off by Morgan Burnett, as he overthrew Anquan Boldin on a slant route.
The status on Rodgers was up in the air as he suffered an abdominal strain, and he was considered questionable to return.
With Flynn under the center, the Packers decided to feed Eddie Lacy the ball over and over, however the 49ers knew this was going to happen and were able to force a quick punt.
San Francisco is beginning to get in rhythm on offense and move the ball into Packers territory as the first quarter comes to a close.
