We have a new candidate for best game of the day.
After the Broncos and Ravens played to a thrilling double-overtime finish earlier on Saturday, the Packers and 49ers are putting forth their best efforts to top it. Colin Kaepernick opened the scoring by throwing a pick-6 to Sam Shields, but he followed that up with a 20-yard touchdown run on the next drive. Overall, Kaepernick has run for 107 yards in the game, an NFL postseason record for a quarterback. In the passing game, he is 11-of-23 for 148 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.
There's still another half of football left.
It's been a less-than-exciting first half for Aaron Rodgers, who is 5-of-10 for 98 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Rodgers has gotten a lot of help from James Jones in the game, first with an amazing 44-yard catch on the sideline that setup a DuJuan Harris touchdown run, and then later with a 20-yard touchdown that tied the score at 21-21. There hasn't been much more than that for the Packers offense; Jordy Nelson is catchless, Greg Jennings has one catch for seven yards, Jermichael Finley has one catch for 19 yards, Randall Cobb also does not have a catch.
David Akers kicked a 36-yard field goal at the end of the half, giving San Francisco a 24-21 lead. You might want to stick around for this one.
