As the temperature keeps getting colder in Green Bay, the home team continues to heat up.
Fullback John Kuhn capped a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown run. The fourth-quarter score became the first points scored of the second half, and the Packers now have their biggest lead of the day, 17-13.
The key play came on fourth and two, as the Packers eschewed a 47-yard field goal attempt on fourth and two. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, making an Eli Manning/David Tyree-style escape with the assistance of a missed hold by Evan Dietrich-Smith, found receiver Randall Cobb for a 26-yard gain.
Eddie Lacy and James Starks have been grinding out the rushing yards for Green Bay, whose defense has kept the 49ers from adding to their first-half point total.
The only bad news for Green Bay comes from a potential concussion suffered by left tackle David Bakhtiari. He’s being evaluated in the locker room.
