The momentum has swung back to the road team. Thanks to a play that surely brought back very bad memories for the Packers.
A 42-yard scramble by quarterback Colin Kaepernick put the ball at the Green Bay 13. Two plays later, running back Frank Gore ran 10 yards for a touchdown.
Kaepernick’s run exceeded his total rushing numbers in 11 of the team’s 16 regular-season games. Last January, Kaepernick ran for 181 yards in a divisional-round win over Green Bay.
The extra point moved the margin back to six, with the 49ers leading 13-7.
