Packers’ Sam Shields starts with a pick-six in San Francisco

While most of America was watching the Broncos and Ravens battle it out in overtime, the Packers got a perfect start to their playoff game in San Francisco.

As 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick dropped back to pass on his second drive on the 49ers’ opening possession, he didn’t see Packers defensive back Sam Shields. And Shields stepped in front of Kaepernick’s pass, sprinted downfield, and raced 52 yards for a touchdown.

It couldn’t have been much worse a start for Kaepernick, the quarterback whom 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh trusted to take over his team in the middle of the 2012 season. Kaepernick has a big arm, but he made a big mistake in this playoff game.

Green Bay has a 7-0 lead, and Aaron Rodgers hasn’t even taken the field yet.

    I can’t believe CBS showed highlights of this game during overtime in Denver. In this age of DVRs, don’t they understand that the audience does not want them to spoil it for us?
